Just when you thought you couldn’t stomach any more rich, over-the-top prints and screaming color combos, Phillip Lim swooped in with a refreshing palette cleanser. His collection shown Wednesday was full of sorbet colors — icy peach, pink and yellow — served on silhouettes that were for, the most part, chill. There were loose, racer-back tanks and lanky track pants that zipped up the sides, some that concealed or revealed a stripe. It was a relaxed foundation on which Lim layered and explored asymmetric cuts, splicing garments in half, as in a dress that looked like a T-shirt in front and a slip from behind. Lim worked the motif gently at first, with tanks and slipdresses outlined in fluttering folds designed to catch the breeze. His program cited kites as a source of inspiration, and the flyaway motif was pretty and serene in small doses. The message at large seemed to be sporty minimalism, but at times Lim overcomplicated matters with cumbersome cuts and excess strips that trailed off the models like party streamers.
