Soon after launching men’s wear in 2007, designer Phillip Lim began sticking men’s looks into runway shows dominated by women’s wear. But that era ends Friday, when the men’s line will have its first stand-alone presentation.
“The women’s would snowball and kill everything in its way,” Lim said. “So the men’s story wouldn’t get told. It was too chopped up. But the men’s collection is finally where I want it to be, so it’s time to show it. It’s time to stop ignoring half the world’s population.”
