3.1 Phillip Lim AW15
With his AW15 show, the designer's aim was to take structure and spin it on its head, starting with archetypal clothing, including suiting, the trench and "a nice lady dress". Quite simply, Lim wanted to have a bit of fun and is asking us to do the same. Luscious layers were up first: a sculpted leather jacket worn with an apron skirt and lace-up booties made for a fresh spin on the biker babe look. Checks last seen during the Nineties grunge movement decorated waisted dresses while parachute straps criss-crossed over tops and jackets. Fur-accented coats, razor-sharp cropped trousers and caged heels added glam to the somewhat utilitarian looks.
Who we saw: Man Repeller's Leandra Medine.
What they wore: A camel teddybear coat.
In a nutshell: The uniform gets a reboot.
