3.1 phillip lim: kill the night
for those of you that haven’t seen 3.1 Phillip Lim’s fall collection, it looks like it came straight from the pages of a Marvel comic book. With that being said, he collaborated with some people to make his own comic book. The comic is called, “Kill the Night”. He describes it as,
A COMIC INSPIRED BY 3.1 PHILLIP LIM’S FALL 2012
COLLECTION AND THE NEO-NOIR HEROINES WHO EMBODY IT.
CO-WRITTEN BY PHILLIP LIM, THIS IS A STORY OF DUALITY.
DAY AND NIGHT, BLACK AND WHITE, LOVE AND BETRAYAL.
THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM. LOOK AGAIN.
I think it came out spectacular. I love strong female characters, and comic books (specifically the x-men & thor comics). When you put those two together it’s a glorious marriage. The “neo-noir” is very consistent with the fall collection & I can easily see where he drew inspiration from his clothing. It finishes everything nicely, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
