There was one thing I really, really liked on Phillip Lim’s spring runway: his use of zippers, which he crafted into curved shapes on dresses and dresses. I love the way the zipper is tranformed into a three-dimensional detail and forms curved, almost ruffled textures. That’s not to say those are the only pieces I liked in the show. It was pretty as always, even if it was a tinnyyy bit too ladylike for me to really get behind. The fringe he’s been playing with for a little while made a bigger appearance here, which I’m all for. So maybe this all wasn’t the most exciting thing in the world, bu there’s plenty of pieces for the Phillip Lim faithful.
