    3.1 Phillip Lim

    Highlights from some of our favorite shows… MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS 3.1 Phillip Lim In a season where heavy handed prints have been the big story, 3.1 Phillip Lim’s slouchy silks in sublime sorbet colors evoked a sporty ease and worked as a welcome urbane minded palette cleanser with a cool minimal, mellow edge.

And that's a good thing as we at FocusOnStyle have seen enough skin-tight body-con dressed open-toe bootied girls than we can bear. And thankfully by the looks of it, Azrouel has had enough too. >> MORE: FASHION SHOWS AND RUNWAY REVIEWS…
