Phillip Lim is joining the world of black leather capes, scaling walls with web shot from the wrist, and phone box changes. The designer is launching "Kill The Night", the most fashionable of comics to illustrate his autumn/winter collection. Lim has co-written his very own comic with John Ostrander and enlisted Jan Duursema of Star Wars comic book fame to lend her drawing skills.
Clearly the designer has been thumbing through a lot of graphic novels of late - not only did pre-fall feature that punchy "KA-POW" print but autumn/winter was inspired by Sin City, V for Vendetta and neo-noir heroines too. Throughout the pages, each character wears Lim's most recent collection and the two lead characters are based on Lim's real friends. Exactly who was lucky enough to be sketched will be announced on the designer's Twitter and Facebook soon.
However, superhero speed is needed if you're going to get a copy as there are only limited numbers available. Head to 3.1philliplim.com from September 6th and sign up to nab one.
