We watched time unravel backwards as Dimple Lim flashbacked from extra-terrestrial trendsetter to color-decked tribal princess in her Holiday 2012 collection.
In a play of structure and flow, the holiday collection of Dimple Lim strikes stark contrast between futuristic and earthy. We follow the transformation and the modern, sharp-edged leather silhouettes paired with gradient sequined sheaths evolve into softer, but no less stronger shapes with bright bursts of color on draped jersey. No matter the time difference, however, one thing binds together all fashion-forward pieces: their bling, be it out of this world in solid silver neckpieces or colorful and large stones from the beginning of time. Poles apart has never looked this good together. —DALLAS DEEPKISS
