Carnaby Street

New York…3.1 Philip Lim

In a nod to London in the swinging ‘60s, looks from Lim’s recent collection were each topped off with Beatles-style bob wigs. Hipster singer, Lissy Trullie, gave off a super cool vibe throughout the show as she belted out lyrics accompanied by her band. Convertible Sergeant Pepper jackets (with a removable bottom) in antique white were coordinated with cropped bell-shaped trousers. The same shaped pant was paired with ruffle-front blouses and a goat hair coat. The mini dress made a return in a grey liquid jersey, updating sweatshirt looks. This bohemian vibe came through with Lim’s relaxed attitude. “It’s about fun,” he said.

  • Overheard at the show, interesting story about the boyish bowl cuts. Stylist Odile Gilbert was fitting all the models with custom snipped, mushroom-shaped wigs. Show opener, Tao Okamoto, was left wig-free. Why? Because the Japanese stunner was Lim’s beauty inspiration for last night’s show. Apparenlty Lim was so taken with Okamoto’s now signature cut, he told her not to be surprised when she showed up backstage to see all the models looking just like her.
