If effortless, edgy city-girl style is what you’re all about then you’ll appreciate the new 3.1 Phillip Lim collection which was shown at NYFW yesterday. For a label junkie he’s an absolute must-have, having proven very popular so far with the likes of Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung.

There was a definite androgynous feel to Lim’s Spring/Summer designs, with sweet feminine twists in the form of sugary pastel tones and bright whites. To balance heavy masculine shapes such as slouchy, wide-shouldered shirts, straight-legged city trousers and padded coats, they were deftly teamed with cute silk tees in pale peach and lilac or short white shift dresses.

Dresses-wise, we were shown a cool, low-key collection of playful black silk pieces, flowing grey jersey dresses and navy-white optic floral prints which were really cool. What we love about 3.1 Phillip Lim designs is that there aren’t any frills or showiness, just simply elegant, fashion-forward and wearable pieces. You don’t need to be a mad Isabella Blow type or a Parisian couture princess to wear his designs – Lim designs for every woman out there in the city streets, and we think that’s really cool.

Check out the gallery above to see the new 3.1 Phillip Lim collection.
