3.1 Phillip Lim is bringing back the ‘80s and ‘90s through an achingly cool new collection for Pre-Fall ’17...

Moving away from the neon brights and floral prints – seen at 3.1 Phillip Lim's Spring/Summer '17 runway collection during New York Fashion Week – the brand presents a more edgy approach towards autumnal dressing with their Pre-Fall '17 collection.

Blending the American brand's love for stripes – as seen in his previous collections – with an athletic aesthetic, the Pre-Fall '17 collection is made up of oversized silhouettes, maxi skirts, crisp shirts, Victorian-inspired jackets, high-low dresses and pearl-buttoned coats adorned in a utilitarian colour palette.
