In contrast to the plethora of mountain-man-inspired, Americana wear we've been seeing this season, Phillip Lim's take on fall was a post-apocalyptic, urban adventure. A wide selection of zippered coats, buckled chevalier boots and garments inspired by protective gear gave this raw city-explorer a militant edge that was both very "Lost Boy" and German rock icon. The show opened with a black double-breasted rabbit lined pea coat and a black "fencing" vest, which set the tone for the mainly neutral-colored line-up. Tones of burgundy, navy and tans followed in hooded coats and belted jackets complete with fur detailing. A saddle aviator zip-front jacket made entirely of patched shearling seemed to be purposefully worn in reverse and cropped motorcycle jackets offset the voluminous shapes of riding-inspired pants. A fearless drawstring jumpsuit and a grey zebra hooded poncho were some of the most daring items. An array of accessories including eyewear, gloves and an assortment of leather bags stand as evidence that the talented designer's menswear collection is here for good.
