and the winner of the most functional and also most appropriate collection, in terms of weather, goes to mr philip lim!
The inspiration for this pre-fall collection is said to be the travels of british writer, freya stark to the arabian desert which, somehow, fittingly provided a comforting autumnal palette. The styling was mostly sharp and smart, to meet the aim of being conventional workwear. There were a lot of pantsuits, shorts, shift dresses and jumpers to hit the right notes with the working gals, but we didnt miss out on that element of play with shorter hemlines, cute dresses and the integration of bright orange toward the end.
This collection is conventional and wearable yet, fascinatingly, not so boring.
