JUST RIGHT REBELLION
Paris: Phillip Lim is always adept at producing unusual designs from a common theme and this season his exploration of biker basics was delightfully innovative and approachable. From the start of the presentation, Lim subverted the toughness of leather with cable-knit embossing as well as patchworking, lending a fresh homespun quality to moto jackets and tapered trousers tucked into zippered beatle boots. Cozy knits with ethnic patterns and worn-in military field jackets followed, as did relaxed double breasted suiting with a teddy boy vibe. From bohemian bikers to street-smart youth, Lim’s creatively rebellious F/W 13 was consistently just right.—Nina Stotler
