That’s Phillip Lim speaking as he’s holding an impromptu styling session at his 39th Street showroom, darting from one rack to another and grabbing a pair of pants here, a cardigan there. He’s trying to demonstrate a point: His one-year-old intimates line, 3.1 Phillip Lim Initials, will expand into the loungewear category this fall, propelling beyond the bralette-and-boyshorts premise of its debut to seamlessly work that innerwear-outerwear look. The designer throws a sweatshirt over a silk onesie; a cropped kimono, which he calls the “kimini,” gets paired with gold sequin pants from the ready-to-wear racks. “You could wear this out walking around the city or to stay in,” Lim explains. “It’s all about clothing that is versatile and adaptable.”
