Here are the images for the pre fall collection for 3.1 Phillip Lim. It is not usual to hear about fashion designers to gain inspiration from comic books. However, Phillip Lim easily made a statement through his designs were nothing to joke about. Inspired from V for Vendetta and Sin City, the garments reflect the comic book every well. Monochromatic images from the comic book pages were translated as the color palette while expressing a punch of sinful red and orange. Growing up reading comic books, the accessories were pretty dope! There is no way you can’t express inspiration from a comic book without the BOLD descriptive words! One thing I love about american fashion is the embracing pop culture elements.
Like the comic books, there were some contrasting in the garments. For example, several of the looks deliver a nostalgic 60s look while keeping a minimalist look. The silhouette were indeed modern. The battle of femininity and menswear pieces provides an androgynous effect from some of the looks.
Take a peek at the latest video which features the upcoming A/W 2011 womenswear collection for 3.1 Phillip Lim. Besides the garment featured in the collection, I couldn’t help but to admire the cinematography and essence of the video. Pure ART!!
