If Phillip Lim‘s newly-revealed Resort 2019 line was perfectly made for the “accidental tourist”, then the 3.1 Phillip Lim Men’s Spring 2019 collection is for the laid-back traveling nomad. Or the overworked office employee who needs to make the most out of those precious vacation days.
Hawaiian print shirts, floppy sun hats, linen trousers, and carry-all sling bags define this collection’s breezy and travel-ready vibe. Layered pieces make your packing a little bit easier, and comfort reigns supreme. The “fantasy of escape” is vibrantly alive in this collection – and you will want to live in these fuss-free yet striking pieces.
The clear holiday vibes are the intentional inspiration driving the new launches and their eye-catching styled lookbook.
“This is all about taking time off,” Phillip Lim shared with WWD about the vacation-ready collection. Some garments in the collection literally have the “Take Time Off” slogan printed right on them. “It’s a subliminal cue to remind us that if we don’t refuel, nothing matters,” the designer added.
“I wanted to literally use fashion (clothes) to illustrate the seduction of giving time to yourself,” he also posted on Instagram. In our hectic modern world, it shouldn’t be such a luxury to take time out of a scheduled calendar to focus on ourselves. But somehow, it is. So, set those out-of-office email replies a little early, curate your new travel wardrobe, and go roaming in style.
