NEO-NOIR SUPERHEROINES

Phillip Lim presents a further reinterpretation of neo-noir - first seen in this season's pre-collection and his Fall comic-lookbook, Kill The Night - projecting a modern-day “super-heroine” inspired by “those who are walking around us every day”. Taking visual cues from iconic graphic novels, minimalist duo-tone pieces recall V for Vendetta’s iconic Guy Fawkes mask with its graphic lines, alongside angular black outerwear like a leather and shearling moto jacket, a structured blazer and a sleek, belted vest. Pre-Fall's feminine tulip skirts, draped dresses and silk buttondowns in pastels and brights transform for Fall into masculine, minimalist muscle blouses, billowy trousers and knit shorts cut in a darker, jewel-tone palette.

A strong “femme fatale” influence is translated more literally as super-heroine detailing with modern twists that are classic Lim: clean lines, elongated silhouettes and his signature two-tone “shadow” pieces perfectly outline the female form, and the designer’s clever trompe l’oeil panel-work or oversize collars recall windswept capes, allowing the super-heroine to hide in plain sight. Comic book-inspired geometric prints and exaggerated houndstooth intarsia knits provide a playful edge to a refined collection.
