Phillip Lim’s New Lingerie Line Is For Sweethearts

Leonora Epstein / April 9, 2010

We love Phillip Lim’s signature 3.1 line, but generally can’t afford too much of it. Lim’s first undergarment collection has just hit boutiques, and we’re a bit ambivalent. On the one hand, the $80-$195 price range makes owning a Lim piece closer within reach; on the other, 100 bones is a lot to drop on a bra. Either way, the designs provide some great lingerie inspiration. Instead of being overtly sexy, Lim goes for the sweet and demure with dainty silk bralets, eyelet-hemmed skirt slips (so retro!), and details like scalloped edges and lace. Suffice it to say, bad girls are allowed to wear these pieces, too. [LaGarconne.com]
