IN THE BAG New York: How unexpected for paper bag tones and textures to factor so centrally in 3.1 Phillip Lim’s collection for C/R 13?…and yet, how right! These crinkly, papery base-cloths showcased floral appliqués to charming effect, and tailored up into fresh takes on safari in the form of a pleated skirt and utilitarian anorak. In contrast, rich leathers added edge via channel-batted, motocross jackets and a must-have slim-legged overall. Rounding out the story, a kiss-motif embellished sweatshirt supplied a wink of witty charm. —Kibwe Chase-Marshall

A must-have! This blue skirt is lovely. It reminds me these I saw on at Sandro, the Parisian clothier. I read an article about this awesome store which arrived in New York this year http://www.frenchcultureguide.com/12/sandro-brings-parisian-style-to-new-york
