When I met Phillip Lim at a Thakoon + Illori party in soho, I completely went blank. Instead of telling him how much I admire his work, I asked him what he was going to eat for dinner.
That said, I am a HUGE fan.
Ever year the design genius throws a little bit of fur at us. Last year it was a full rabbit hair boyfriend sweater. This year it is a fur-inset cape. MUCH better.
I like this piece worn buttoned up all the way. Open it adds a bit too much bulk and does not do justice to the architecture of the piece.
To contrast the oatmeal colored outerwear, I suggest wearing a pair of Steve Madden over the knee, suede platform boots. You cant beat a pair of boots that look this good for $179- it does not exist.
