FAVES from 3.1 PHILLIP LIM FW2012
Much of the fashion world is enamored by 3.1 Phillip Lim and I guess it's time for me to follow suit. Unsurprisingly, his recent FW2012 collection is no stranger to clamor from the industry and I spotted quite a few pieces that I must say drew my avid attention.
First up would be this gorgeous Merino Wool Sweater aptly dubbed as the "The Breakup" Sweater. I just love the art deco feel the pattern on this sweater has. Retailing for about USD 425via Net-a-Porter, it is one of this season's a.Must Have couture piece. And why wouldn't it be? It is such a unique, classic looking piece that it'll last anyone's wardrobe a lifetime. Plus, I'm sure it'll come in handy when you're feeling down - so why not look fab and gorgeous while you're at it?
The other piece which I am coveting right now, and I honestly think will make a perfect pair with "The Breakup Sweater" would be this gorgeous Mini Pashli Satchel in luscious red bedazzled with just the right amount of gold hardware. Made of grained leather with a top handle, it's a stylish piece that any fasione-ista shouldn't be without. In spite of it's size, I believe it's roomy enough to carry essentials and with an expandable feature, it just becomes the perfect workbag or weekend bag out. Available at Barneys for USD 650, it's definitely a steal as this lovely will definitely last you beyond FW2012.
