Gangs in NYFW
Phillip Lim's 3.1 Collection for Fall 2011 was based on Gangs from Girls who ride bikes to the Yakuza (notice the print on the white dress, it's based on Yakuza tattoo's). The largely menswear-inspired collection was an aggressive play in texture (loved the neoprene in the mix) and oversize proportion. Loose-fitting inverted-pleat pants were the dominant silhouettes with some flowy and wide print (tattoo inspired) dresses. All in all, personally, I was not a fan of the collection.
