Phillip Lim Comic & App

Designer Phillip Lim has added another title to his resume: Comic Book Author! "Kill the Night," co-written by Lim and John Ostrander and illustrated by Jan Duursema (of Star Wars comic book fame) will be available by signing up at

His fall collection takes inspiration from neo-noir heroines from comics such as Sin City. Think lots of black and white with probably touches of red thrown in for good measure.

As a component to “Kill The Night,” the brand will also launch a free app called “Agent 3.1,” created in collaboration with King and Partners. The app uses mobile acuity technology, allowing the consumer to use their phone like a magnifying glass and search for hidden content and links throughout the comic book and future 3.1 Phillip Lim materials.

Very cool to see designers embrace different forms of media, especially the unexpected!!
