    Sometimes, it doesn't matter if a piece of clothing is mint green or crisp black. It can have just as much edge, no matter the hue. Such was the case for 3.1 Philip Lim's fall '14 line, that ranged from lavender to a deep, midnight blue. The common thread (see what we did there?): It was just painfully cool.

    According to Lim's color philosophy, you can mix your purples with your camels, your teals with your khakis, and your pinks with your maroons without looking like you just dove head-long into a MOMA experiment. And, if you double-down on his separates, the blend will happen for you. Take, for example, the button-down shirt that starts off white and transitions into blocks of black, green, and purple. Or, the sequined overcoat (possibly the most snapped pic of the show) that shone in a swirl of purple, silver, and gold.

    Neutral obsessives, don't fret. You don't have to feel bright all season long to get into Lim's fall offerings. There are oversized knits and muted trousers that have just as much umph as the pigmented stuff. But, it's all a little bit throwback — think late '70s, early '80s — and meant to be playful. Why else would there be bags that say "Amaze," or "Cash"? Still, when that black, wrapped-blazer and trouser outfit rounded the corner, we knew he meant business. Then again, the suit was paired with a mint-green, textured bag.
