THE HITS:
3.1 Phillip Lim
• “[R]efreshing, airy, and minimal — a sartorial sorbet … there was a refined sportiness … it’s nice to see a different approach.” [Style.com]

• “There was an unaffected simplicity and innocence to the collection, an un-ironic view of Nineties minimalism, but with more heart.” [Vogue UK]

• “[Sherbet tones were] served with a fresh dose of minimalism, sans saccharine undertones and frilly embellishments … Sportif silhouettes also made a strong showing, playing harmoniously alongside his airy elements.” [Fashion Week Daily]
