SURF THE NEW WAVE
Paris: Titled “New Wave,” Phillip Lim takes us on a journey of the accidental tourist in foreign locales for S/S 14. A gritty ‘70s surf spirit dominates through street silhouettes splayed with buffalo checks, Playa stripes and tropical motifs complemented with neoprene, linens and cracked leathers. Lim masterfully merges the urban sensibility with sumptuous elements, evident in metallic leathers, woolen cargo pants and sleeveless tuxedo tops. —Kathleen Tso
