A child of the Seventies, Phillip Lim offered a subtle nod to the decade with hints of safari, old-school athleticism and unusual color pairings. The resulting resort collection was a bit of a departure for the designer and offered plenty of interesting options. While he has focused on more oversize shapes as of late, here dresses were cut closer to the body with an A-line skirt, most notably versions in a digitized snake print and one with a wavy hem that recalled Seventies-friendly rickrack. Lim also offered his nostalgic version of a suit — a safari blazer and culottes worn with a Cuban-heeled shoe.
