The 3.1 Phillip Lim presentation was another designer I had added to my New York Fashion Week schedule for the first time.

In describing this collection the designer said, “It’s about these chic women who ride bikes to work, to brunch, to a cocktail party.”

I don’t ride a bike but many pieces shot to the top of my wish list, as the designer showcased beautiful cropped pants, a wool anorak with black fur patch pockets and leather sleeves, a wool kimono sleeve jacket, a black jumpsuit with long beaded gold sleeves, colour-block pants and the final look was a sapphire maxi conical gown.

This menswear inspired collection consisted of oversized loose fitting easy wearable pieces. The outerwear really stood out with a mix of coats, anoraks and baseball jackets.

Key accessories included leather mules, scoop-front booties, cap-toe heels, oversize, square shades, briefcase-style bags and clutches.
