the name of his fall collection is "sono mama" which means "as you are" in japanese.
his inspiration behind this collection was "girlfriends of bikers." i've never seen a girl get off a motorcycle looking so fabulous, but in phillip lim's world they sure do! i can totally see "his" vision about how a girlfriend of a biker would transform her outfits from day to night.
i especially loved how the crossbody of the purses were a bit shorter than usual. it's like the girls were wearing a shoulder bag and was jumping on the bike and needed to wear it as a crossbody to secure the bag from rolling off her shoulder. i can totally see the short crossbody's becoming a trend.
and those moto jackets & knee high boots!!! i definitely want (or need) them for fall!
phillip lim...you stole me heart once again.
