Boho, Magpie, Eclectic Eccentric... Call it what you might, the only descriptor in my mind that embodied Phillip Lim's 3.1 Resort collection was, Confusion! A mighty mixed up mishegoss of Fringe, Sweats, Knits, Fraying edges and absurdity that for all it was trying to do, ended up looking more Homeless than Homely! Although it looked that as well! The message Lim was trying to get across? Your guess would be as good as mine! If things didn't look threadbare and shambolic, they looked frumpy and sloppy!
Lim was inspired by Boho girls, with their Magpie touch to the way the wardrobe themselves, I can't think of a single woman who would want to be layered in these silly trifles. Lim had a few moments, but they were buried under masses of unneeded trickery and haphazardness. Again, it had a few charms going for it, but they were negligible in the thicket of such unappealing fashion! Lim, I am sure was full on Head and Heart into this muddled collection, and That's sadly, the part that worries me most!
