This Fall collection for Danielle Martin and Pao Lim was another testament of their incredible talent to build their label Martin Lim, moreover after winning Mercedes Benz Start Up Award, the confidence and optimism of their collection is flourishing on the next level. For Fall, the duo seemed to make a repercussion from their Spring outing, I'm talking about the bicolor panel dress, quirky patchwork and the impeccable draping technique. The silhouette were loose and elongate woman's figure accompanied by interesting color palette; purple, ivory, salmon, black, and neon pink. From the first look-out, the black-ivory leather shift dress worn over black skinny pants was a surprising introduction, followed by an array of exquisite tailored pieces; the ivory coat with black leather pocket; the asymmetric knee length dress; the biker jacket with zipper tab on the waist, but my personal favorite was the vintage floral jacket paired with blue-sky pants. Another winning look, for instance, was a high-neck patchwork top paired with black pencil skirt with fringe hemline worn over skinny pants which reminds me of sleek Mod Girl (moreover the models hair were pulled back with bun).

The "fringe-pleat" detail was the new play this season. They did it on shifts, skirts, tops and even the the accessories, such as necklace and what's more intriguing, almost entire looks wearing skinny pants. It was a fresh unification that made their minimalist and modern aesthetic more intriguing. For eveningwear the duo definitely wanted to show their forte by creating draped long dresses, it was all about showing the shoulder. The light material made the silhouette of the dresses more dramatic when the models strolled down the runway. I can see Rose Byrne or maybe Cameron Diaz wearing on of their dresses on the red carpet. On the whole, it was a breakthrough and optimistic collection and makes me wondering what they will bring in the future. Stay tuned.
