It's a loving team effort at Martin Lim.

Montreal-based designer couple Danielle Martin and Pao Lim are a force to be reckoned with. The husband-and-wife duo launched their label Martin Lim last spring almost twenty years after meeting in Quebec City. Both Martin and Lim studied at London's Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and later went on to work for Roland Mouret while Martin also spent a summer under the nose of Christian Lacrioux's atelier. Martin Lim's fall collection is smart and sleek, consisting of shapely cuts in plum, red and black. (A collection to drink fancy wine in). In a recent blurb in Elle magazine Lim admitted that the fall collection was inspired by the poster for Fritz Lang's 1927 film Metropolis - art deco, abstracts and minimalism all shape into one. Check out some of our favorite pieces below but you can find the entire collection on their website.
