Pastels in spring is hardly a new notion: see every Easter dress worn by little girls for the last 100 years. But the soft palette is being done in surprising ways this season by designers from Rag & Bone (minty green and soft blue) to Diane von Furstenberg (Roy G. Biv softened to sorbet).
Today, let’s focus on 3.1 Phillip Lim, where the designer worked with goldenrod and lilac, and made them pop with shades of pink. Graduating from pale rose to carnation to deep strawberry, there is a girlish sweetness in this collection, while the sophisticated silhouettes keep the mood elevated.
