They say a new wardrobe is as good as a holiday, and 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s Holiday Collection 2014 has taken this to heart with a range that has us dreaming of cocktail parties and glamorous soiree’s.
Made up of a carefully edited selection of cocktail dresses, feminine floral detailing and versatile separates, the collection puts a strong focus on the tuxedo with tailored pants, masculine blazers and boxy jumpsuits. Perfect for those parties you need to run straight to from the office! A colour palette of relaxed pastels and jewel tones set against stark black and white creates a fresh and modern aesthetic, while the addition of a leather biker jacket adds just the right amount of rocker edge. An embroidered oversize jersey with delicate chiffon skirt is the perfect way to ward off the December chill and still look polished.
The collection is in keeping with the brands minimalist style aesthetic, and is versatile enough to incorporate into a working wardrobe. With the exception of one or two misses – a boxy beige pencil skirt and capped sleeve short jacket look slightly out of place amid the romance and glamour of the rest of the collection- we can picture our festive season looking very stylish.
