3.1 Phillip Lim's F/W '24 Collection: Bridging Work and Casual Wear

By: Jackson Collins


Chic yet wearable garments for the everyday consumer remain familiar territory for 3.1 Phillip Lim, yet the brand continually refreshes its aesthetic in the Fall/Winter 2024 collection. The intention is to seamlessly merge the worlds of work and casual wear, a feat achieved beautifully.

Instead of opting for a traditional runway display, Lim chose a more accessible option: a weekend-long immersive presentation held in Chinatown. The showcase aimed to spotlight spotlight the work of fellow Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), featuring poetry by Fatima Ahmad, Jessica Kim, Vanessa Niu, and Serena Yang.

Models adorned slicked-back hair and minimal makeup, a standout departure from the experimental hairstyling and avant-garde eyeshadow prevalent in most collections. This choice allows the looks to speak for themselves, aligning perfectly with the simplicity of the garments.

Lim's focus on creating clothing accessible to the average buyer is evident. For instance, the reversible striped dress adds practicality, offering even more versatility. The collection effortlessly blends structured jackets with athleisure-inspired aesthetics, achieving a balance between workwear and playfulness.

Bold elements throughout, such as scarlet-colored leggings and low ankle-length boots, distinguish this collection from average fashion lines producing similarly simplified looks. Overall, it was an exceptionally strong presentation, showcasing 3.1 Phillip Lim's commitment to inclusivity, practicality, and bold style choices.
