Yesterday, a WWD article announced that Phillip Lim is expanding his Initials collection to include loungewear for Fall 10. The Initials intimates range, or “underpinnings” as he calls the category, has been met with much praise since its Spring 10 debut. The range is currently sold in 3.1 Phillip Lim boutiques, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Harvey Nichols and Lane Crawford and ranges from $75 – $225. Below is the range carried at Lane Crawford.
It’s easy to see why Lim’s sweet tap pants, bralettes and chemises have been a success so far, and I could even see some of these pieces worn outside the bedroom. It makes perfect sense for Initials to evolve into loungewear for next season, with even more inner-as-outer applications. Right on trend, and a nice tie-in to Lim’s womenswear collection.
