Kill the Night

Kill the Night

>> I loves me a bit of novelty fashion printed paraphernalia and Phillip Lim's foray into comic books is definitely a keeper (I'll even keep it in its plastic wrapper for potential future collectability).  If Phillip Lim's A/W 12-3 sparsely cool collection didn't obviously read "superhero" or "comic books" in its aesthetic, he has turned out a very literal comic book Kill the Night, scripted by John Ostrander and illustrated by Jan Duursema.  In true predictable comic book fashion, there are a lot of onomatopoeic sound effects, a doomed love interest and impossibly long-legged heroines drawn to tower over you, except with a Pashli bag popping up every now and again.  You can sign up to receive a copy if Phillip Lim-clad leggy girls dropping lines like "Call me crazy, but I think I'm really falling for him." are your thing.     

Reading Kill the Night in my hotel bathtub with some new Nancy shoes on… as you do…






Lim's pre-occupation with comic books doesn't end with Kill the Night as his pre-fall collection features a few Lichtenstein-esque motifs that grace knitwear and accessories.  Who isn't up for a bit of bang and a bit of kapow splashed across the chest?

    I love all the Phillip Lim comic-themed pieces. I’m just wondering how long it’ll be before it filters down to the High Street. I’m surprised it hasn’t been more prevalent given the quick turnaround times of the High Street stores now.

    I surprised myself by getting taken in by the Phillip Lim “comic book” pieces – and all the High Street duplicates. I think what works best are definitely the subtle Lichtenstein references and the muted, monochrome-ality of the “Kill the Night” comic strips.
    Best Wishes,

    I love these pieces, too. They’re so original and pretty. Not sure I would really go outside wearing clothes with comic book prints, but still they’re beautiful.

    I think the clutch would look fab with a LBD or other classic attire. So fun!

    Ooh, this is amazing! I like every bit of this writing and I do agree Phillip Lim’s venture and attack into comic books is unquestionably a warder; his pieces drives one passionate and into humor. I can’t imagine myself out of this funny game, I really love the comic-the fashion style is hot and everything looks beautiful on its side.I look forward into it; keep in touch and thanks a lot for sharing!
