Born in Thailand and raised in Southern California, it was while working at Barneys that Lim realized his call to fashion. After relocating to New York, Lim and and business partner, Wen Zhou, debuted 3.1 Phillip Lim in 2005. They agreed on 3.1 Phillip Lim for the company name, because they were both 31 at the time. 3.1 provides cool, easy, chic looks with a youthful elegance and an unmistakable signature style.
Taking cues from the '50s for DSQUARED2's Spring/Summer '18 collection, the Caten twin desginers present a series of pastel shades, dramatic tulle accents and frill trims reminiscent of retro-inspired prom dresses and tuxedos. These pointed court shoes subtly reference the era with their sherbert yellow colourway, cut with a pointed toe, high stiletto heel and finished with a slim ankle strap and side buckle fastening, which can be removed for a choice of style options. Made in Italy, impeccable quality is implicit, finished with a leather insole and sole.
