Phillip Lim Releases a Style-Centric Comic for Fashion’s Night Out

For Pre-Fall 2012, designer Phillip Lim offered up a neo-noir comics-inspired collection in the form of graphic-heavy accessories, transparent-paneled Pashli satchels and zippered skirts that adjust to proportions. The memorable collection has been spotted in numerous editorials, and the “Ka-Pow!” shirt has become a bonafide regular on street style blogs.

Taking the comic inspiration even further, Lim has teamed up with author John Ostrander and Star Wars illustrator Jan Duursema to create a fashion comic titled Kill the Night.

The comic book—similar in style to Frank Miller’s work—features the characters wearing Lim’s latest designs. The best part? All looks are shoppable.

“The idea of dual lives and a heroine with an inner strength was where it all started,” Lim says, citing Alexa Chung, Lissy Trullie, and Oh Land as some of his real-life leading ladies. “I am surrounded by these heroines every day, all around me, so it seemed fitting to make the city in my head come alive,” Lim told style.com.

The pub will be released tonight, September 6th, to coincide with Fashion’s Night Out. Lim will be on hand at his NYC boutique to sign copies. For those who aren’t in New York, visit the designer’s Web site to get an autographed copy.
