3.1 Phillip Lim presents us with a monochromatic lookbook for their sporty 2015 Spring/Summer footwear collection, featuring what appear to be ultra luxe basketball sneakers. Something that, these days, is not all that surprising coming from a high-fashion house like Lim. As the walls between high-fashion and sportswear have now been disintegrated for some time, industry leaders continue to conceive their luxurious take on leisurewear, delivering street-styled wares that possess both fashionableness and technicality. The athletic footwear available in the SS15 collection consists of four iterations of what look like a Nike Air Force 1 from the far future: the PL31 is available in either high or low top variations and is constructed of plush calf leather and elastic lacing; finished in white, black, or snakeskin.
The 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2015 footwear collection captures the high-fashion sportswear aesthetic that the brand themselves played a role in pioneering the trend, or what some may even call the new direction of contemporary fashion. The collection is available now at high-end retailers and 3.1 Phillip Lim stockists worldwide.
