All items: 3.1 Phillip Lim

Sometimes, you look at a runway look and think "What's happening here?"

You can squint your eyes and zoom in as much as you want, but expert layering & hard-to-see camera angles can leave you in the dark. This Spring, Phillip Lim had one such look that had my head scratching. Here, we dissect it down into its individual parts:

1. Ah yes. The collared leather halter tunic. A genius way to add a preppy, yet slightly edgy touch.
2. A sweater so light-knit, you wonder how that model is wearing so many layers without looking bulky.
3. This is where things clicked. The skirt has a paneled 'layer' component!
4. Nothing too tricky here. But it's always nice to see things closer up.

And there you have it.
