Smart Buy: PHI Shorts in Summer's Shape

We at Vnyc love vintage, but since we pay so much attention to current fashion and love a look that's the right mix of high & low, vintage & contemporary, we can't resist stocking up on current must-haves and this is reflected in our shop's range. From a label we truly covet, one that we watch each season with excitement, New York label PHI, come these shocking magenta balloon shorts in this season's must-have shape. One could say this decade has been not only about revivals, but also about tweaking classics and paying attention to one item at a time. The trench coat, the bag, the jean, the shoe and especially the dress, have all had their fair share of the spotlight...and now more than ever it seems to be the time of the pant and short. From Chloe to Louis Vuitton, the pant has been given a rigorous re-thought, from skinny to balloon, to drop-crotch, harem and lantern, bottoms haven't been such a strong option for quite a long time. These PHI shorts quietly hit so many trends dead-on for one item while retaining a very chic, luxe appeal.

Trend Alert: note the jewel tone, vague military references, pleated balloon shape and 70's inspired sumptuous sash wrap.
