The show opened with a New York summer wardrobe: a white tank with a gently asymmetric line, slouchy pinstripe pants, and barely there sandals that were devoid of any bells and whistles save for a shiny pebble-like toe clasp. Classic white shirting figured into the collection as well, with several iterations of the pristine button-down—sometimes long and lean like a tunic, other times romantic and voluminous with ruffles across the body and rolling along the sleeve.
The flamenco reference come in a series of crisp cotton ruffled dresses, skirts, and crop tops toward the end of the show. Lim included workwear-inspired denim jackets, sleeveless trenchcoats, and one particularly fetching pair of cargo pants cut from satin and denim.
The designer featured an aqua sock-style sandals, a chic and comfy take on the current craze for sock booties. With its bowling silhouette and cross-body strap, the new 3.1 handbag had a cool, understated vibe that was a refreshing. departure from the highly impractical mini purses and flashy logo It bags that have dominated the runways for the past few seasons. That less-is-more approach is likely to carry weight on the shop floor come the spring.
