Philip Lim is most certainly moving up on my list of most favorable designers. his spring collection already made such a powerful tug at my heart-strings, and this one does no less. strong lines and layering for a strong woman. no need to wear a fluttering cape, although his opening look is pretty damn cool, with rounded shoulder and chiffon turtleneck and all, all you require are lady-like pumps (or cap-toe loafers if you're planning on being an active superwoman) and a good 'ol trompe l'oeil metal collar. i particularly fancy the clean, bare skin, near natural makeup, and pulled-back hair that are always a nice break from the crowded faces you find elsewhere.
