3.1 Phillip Lim: back on Earth.

I can't contain myself: this NYFW has provided us with such great pleasures I couldn't not write about it.
3.1 Phillip Lim has shown a collection which was beyond great: I loved the "geology" concept behind the whole S/S 2014 collection, I love the clean cuts and the mix between architectural and kinda-flowy silhouettes, the colour palette was divine (I need to admit I have a thing for all-white and I truly believe it will be next S/S most popular trend), the fabrics worked amazingly with the silhouettes and colours. Everything was just exactly the way it should have been: the styling was minimalistic yet very direct and effective, and I could see both a working woman and a teenager wearing the pieces.

Those are my favourites from Phillip Lim's S/S 2014 collection.

  I'm in love with the black sweater/jacket piece and the embroidered pattern on the organza fabric. Genius!

I love the white top and the details going over the shoulder and down the sleeves, and I also love the fit of the trousers. I find this look very flattering and, overall, it's in my top 5.

 Again the organza embroidered sweater, paired with some tailored trousers and a mustard leather jacket which, amazingly, does not contrast with the other colours, but actually brings them together!

 Totally adore this white sweater with transparent panels and the pattern on top of it.

 This dress is definitely in my top 5: clean cut, nice fit, and that je ne sais quois which makes it so damn gorgeous.

 This little all-white dress kinda reminds me of the 60s miniskirts (and ensembles) by Mary Quant. This white leather piece is like a modern version of Quant's worldwide famous garment.

 All-white again, successfully executed: totally in love with the jacket-top, not such a fan of the trousers' length, but still... and gorgeous shoes.

 This white vest leaves me speechless. I want it! (Defo top 5!)

 Very cute ensemble, the perfect touch of colour and... those shoes!! Perfection!
