Paris: Inspired by the wild spirit of the mountain man, Philip Lim reinterpreted utility staples, giving them an urban edge. Rugged fabrics, boxy silhouettes and functional details blended together seamlessly. Outerwear stood out – Alpine parkas and long gilets sported multiple clasp closures, while a nylon anorak had its sleeves replaced by knitted ones. Lim’s astute mix of fabrics emphasized the versatility of the line up. Heavy layered silhouettes achieved voluminous proportions and relaxed tailored trousers mixed effortlessly with sharp casualwear pieces. – Diego Sanchez
