While his 2017 fall collection explored the “Romancing Reality” montra, Phillip Lim draws inspiration from painters for his 2018 spring collection. Exploring the life of a painter — which most of the time is means being not only being an artist but also someone who multi-tasks through life — this new 3.1 Phillip Lim collection took nostalgic photos of great painters like Ellsworth Kelly, Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly, and turned them into a homage on apparel canvases.

“We started with the quintessential painter’s uniform — aprons, smocks, canvas, raw denim — and reimagined this category of utilitarian workwear into clothes that men could incorporate and adapt for a modern, youthfully elegant wardrobe,” Lim explained.

While most of us aren’t “starving artists,” the struggle of juggling a passion and being able to make a living is a plight that’s relatable for many today and this collection reflects that perfectly. Check out the looks above and let us know your thoughts.
