Phillip Lim adds shoes, swimwear and lingerie to his line

He's one of the hottest names in fashion, who everyone from Blake Lively to Becki Newton clamours to be dressed by, and we still can't get that sequin jacket from last season's collection out of our heads. But now we've got a whole new reason – or three – to love Mr Phillip Lim, because he's extending his line to include swimwear, lingerie and shoes. The designer is debuting three styles of swimwear, including both one pieces and bikinis, and five styles of lingerie to be sold under the name of ‘3.1 Phillip Lim Initials'. ‘Because it's the initial thing you put on, before you put on clothes,' the designer told us. And let's not forget about the footwear. ‘Everyone's making crazy shoes... so we were like, "Let's do working shoes, but sophisticated and beautiful."' Yes, indeed. Unfortunately that's where the good news ends. After a quick ring-around of UK buyers this morning it seems Initials pieces are currently only set to be stocked in the US and Asia. Still we thought you'd like to know first, and judging by how successful all things Lim are – plus the campaign we're about to start – we reckon we won't have to wait too long until they hit out stores. We'll let you know when we do...  [WWD]
