Summary: When the first few looks came down the runway, I thought maybe I had fallen asleep for 6 months and was at the February shows. The woolish deep reds and greys threw me off and made me think of fall. For spring? Obviously, however, Phillip Lim knows what sells by now and some women might actually still be thinking winter when this collection hits stores in February. He has something for every day for the early spring/late summer fan. I was more wowed by the 'spring' looks and by the end of the show had almost forgotten about handful that opened the show. Don't worry Phillip Lim fans, he delivered. Especially with his offering of beautiful knife pleated and draped dresses. Some had a little too much going on with leather, sequins, and a ribboning effect, but the overall effect was still Phillip Lim picth perfect.
