The monochrome trend that is emerging from NYFW is the perfect winter palette but we all need some colour in our lives. Which is why Philip Lim‘s beautifully tailored collection was the best of both worlds. Graphics, black and white with an explosion of colour at the end of the show, the autumnal lady knows how to dress to impress.
Tapered trousers, soft blazers and cocoon coats were draped on top of each other to create a curvaceous silhouette. Elegant houndstooth skirts worn with a ladylike blouse, chunky knits and high waisted tangerine trousers were almost a comic book colour palette and the fabulous green coat and peeping blues in a poncho created a welcome link between the bright and darker colours in the collection.
