3.1 Phillip Lim
Who: New York-based style savant of everyday urban luxury.
Why now: For FW13, Lim revs up his trademark sporty cuts with leather panels and biker motifs.
Hot pieces: Oversized bomber jackets, side-split sweaters and slick leather pants.
The designer’s take: “This collection is all about ease. This woman has to go to work in clothing that is desirable, seasonless and highly functional.”
