3.1 Phillip Lim Slim Fit Lounge Pants with Rib Panel and Binding Finish
Lately it seems I’ve been daring to wear some more causal, active wear. Maybe because it’s spring, the snow is FINALLY GONE! and the new 3.1 Phillip Lim spring 2013 collection has hit stores. So naturally before I go out and select something from a designer I make it a point to know about the collection, the inspiration etc… It’s probably just my O.C.D coming out but it yields some fun facts, for instance:
FUN FACT: Did you know that Brazil is home to the worlds second largest Japanese population? Phillip Lim did. His spring 2013 collection was born out of his observation of the unique blend of Japanese and Brazilian culture and how it would translate to the emerging style of a young Japanese-Brazilian businessmen, or what he called “Nipo-Brasileiro sub-cultures. Neat huh. You’re Welcome.

From Phillip Lim on the collection:
” He followed his nose to Mixed Martial Arts, MMA, which brings together Asian martial arts traditions with something closer to street fighting. “It’s born from make-do and the ghettos,” Lim said backstage after his show, which he headed with a snatch of a poem called “Street Fight.” Then he clarified: “I wanted this character that was street stylers—fighters with hustler swagger. You’re born from nothing, and you use clothes to get somewhere.”
See, active wear doesn’t have too mean track pants and a jersey.
