PHILLIP LIM x THE PROVERBS: DIY
Tuesday June 19, 2012





First and foremost, I try to refrain from posting about fashion designers. I feel all the other blogs in the world cover the topic enough. However, Phillip Lim has become quite fascinating to me. Especially, in his Menswear FW 2012-2013. The show opened up with a knitted white sweater and white pant ensemble, plucking at my heartstrings immediately. The pixelated fabric used to create a coat and sweater in the line, made a clear visual. Lim is very clever when it comes to the little details of a look. As he use a simple temporary skin decoration called Henna. Which can be shown on the pentacles of each models (pointer and ring) finger. The detail is seen as a leading trend for this fall/winter season. Like most fashion gurus, I draw inspiration from several designers. Even though, I try not to (I know it is impossible...). Lim's idea of incorporating henna in his line, inspired me to re-design my own. The way I did that was by using Liquitex Acrylic in white and black; in addition, to a Beste brush. The width or sizing is a personal preference. I find this DIY to be handy when you need the perfect finger accent to complete your look. With that said, I hope you guys will enjoy this concoction. Have a wonderful day!

    I know what you mean about trying not to post about fashion designers. The blogging world is heavily saturated with that. Thanks for sharing this stuff about Phillip Lim.

    Great scripture also!
