3.1 Phillip Lim created an artistically stunning campaign, one of which symbolises authenticity and personality. Shot by Dutch artist, Viviane Sassen, the ideology mixes both high-end fashion with natural and earthy undertones, in regard to use of environment and surroundings. Liya Kebede, the model depicted throughout the campaign, was invited to take campaign photos in her hometown Addis Ababa, in Ethiopia.
