3.1 Phillip Lim's S/S 2012 collection brought the kind of chic, casual cool look every New Yorker will be coveting after. The designer brought his classic sportswear spin on the collection but did so in a softer manner, with his addition of pastels in the color palette. The details of the collection were delicate and dainty, while holding the tough element NYFW is known for. Every stitch, every lavender+mint+cotton candy hue, every flowly silhouette, every mascara-free, silver clad eye were elements which brought the refreshingly minimalist collection to life. Among these fashion factors were the designer's gorgeous metallic shoes, which could easily serve for both a work day or a night out. To achieve this look, as seen above, I turned to Topshop, which gives fashionistas lower-priced alternatives to their favorite pieces.
