A Communal Celebration of Design and Innovation with 3.1 Phillip Lim

In a vibrant tribute to the dynamic essence of New York City, 3.1 Phillip Lim unveiled INTERSECTIONS—an immersive fashion installation that celebrated the diverse tapestry of creativity and community. Nestled within the city’s cultural landscape, this collaborative venture brought together a constellation of AAPI creatives, each contributing their unique perspective to Lim’s Fall/Winter 2024 collection.

Following Lim’s triumphant return to the runway in September 2023, this collection marked a culmination of this evolving narrative—a retrospective celebration of the brand’s journey and an exploration of the city’s dynamic spirit. Against the bustling backdrop of New York’s streets, the installation unfolded as a sensory journey, inviting visitors to explore four distinct vignettes: LIVE, LOVE, WORK, and PLAY.

Guided by a multigenerational collective of AAPI visionaries—including Dong-Ping Wong of Food Architects, acclaimed photographer Jiro Konami, composer Sugar Vendil, graphic design studio Social Species, and Species, and original verse by youth poets: Fatima Ahmad, Jessica Kim, Vanessa Niu and Serena Yang—INTERSECTIONS blurred the boundaries between fashion, art, and culture. Through Lim’s collaborative ethos, the installation became a living tapestry, embodying the city’s ever-evolving narrative and the limitless potential of creative synergy.

At the heart of the immersive experience lay Lim’s Fall/Winter 2024 collection, interwoven with each vignette to create a harmonious fusion of style and substance. Brooklyn-based duo Indie Studios lent their artistic prowess to transform traditional print photography into ethereal displays, illuminating Konami’s archival works with an otherworldly glow.

With a nod to the past and a vision for the future, Lim introduced a range that breathed new life into cherished memories—an embodiment of the quintessential 3.1 way of dressing. Effortless subversion defined the collection’s ethos, as classic workwear codes were deconstructed and reimagined. From utilitarian sergeant jackets paired with cargo pants to khaki sweatsuits infused with a touch of hype, Lim effortlessly blended functionality with fashion, offering a fresh take on at-leisure dressing.

Tailoring took center stage with a non-traditional twist, as deconstructed blazers featured adjustable buckles that cinched the waist, adding refinement to menswear for the female form. Continuing to build upon this theme of irreverent ease, Lim introduced pieces inspired by diverse influences, from ’50s cafe racer jackets styled with capri leggings to long denim maxi skirts paired with oversized merino wool turtlenecks. Each ensemble exuded a sense of New York cool, effortlessly blending toughness with refinement.

Accessories played a pivotal role in completing the 3.1 woman’s look, with the ID family of handbags and footwear expanding to include new fabrications and colorways. From stamped crocodile textures to quilted suede and leather with chunky chain straps, each accessory embodied the brand’s commitment to bold experimentation.

“Fall/Winter 2024 culminates our New York collections story. Youthful dreams and naïveté have evolved into a romantic toughness shaped by the everyday hustle. That vibration – the symbiosis of different creative energies coming together – is what we are capturing with INTERSECTIONS. This is our 20th anniversary year, and we want to continue to show up differently and surprise the community who has supported us on this journey. Working with these artists, the breadth of their talent, is a jolt of inspiration to me going into this milestone year.”


Fall/Winter 2024 revealed the 3.1 woman in full control of her identity, embracing playful sophistication with every stride. Konami’s evocative photographs offered a window into the soul of New York—a kaleidoscopic mosaic of everyday moments and intimate encounters. Paired with director Ryosuke Tanzawa’s cinematic vision, these images came to life, capturing the pulse and rhythm of the city in all its vibrant glory.

Complementing the visual narrative was Vendil’s mesmerizing composition—a symphony of sound that echoed the city’s heartbeat. From the bustling streets to the tranquil parks, Vendil’s melodic improvisations captured the essence of New York’s multifaceted identity, intertwining seamlessly with Mittal’s soulful saxophone solos.

As visitors stepped into the immersive world of INTERSECTIONS, they were enveloped in a tapestry of sights, sounds, and emotions—an embodiment of the power of collaboration, sustainable design, and the enduring spirit of community. The brand’s commitment to building a strong community of mindful global citizens, rooted in intention, gratitude, and kindness, shines through in every aspect of the installation. With sustainability and community at the forefront of every decision, 3.1 Phillip Lim continues to lead the charge in the ever-evolving fashion landscape, paving the way as a resilient, independent, and competitive force in both American and global fashion. Through alliances and platforms that unite fashion, art, community, and culture, the brand fosters meaningful connections and promotes sustainability in a way that resonates deeply with its audience.
