3.1 Phillip Lim

The muse for Phillip Lim's 3.1 clothing collections is New York City-simple, individualistic and decidedly feminine. Lim adorns luxurious fabrics with unexpected details such as hand stitching and homemade accents to add dimension and personality to each piece. After studying at California State University at Long Beach, Lim worked for Katayone as a design assistant. He then spent 22 seasons as creative director and co-founder of Development. 3.1, which Lim founded with his partner Wen Zhou, is his most personal collection to date.

I'm officially a huge 3.1 Phillip Lim fan now. The clean and simple design from their latest Fall collection just blew me over. They can make grey sexy and cable-knits chic. Check it out here.

My favourite dresses from the collection.

I love the slouchy casual looks and even the most boring grey sweaters look great.

How to wear a overall without looking frumpy - wear leather boots!
