KA-3.1 PHILLIP LIM
Phillip Lim- not only released arguably my favourite SS12 line this year- maybe even ever- as mentioned here but his pre-fall 12 line is just a dream. Inspired by super-heros and neo-noir comics such as Sin City, Bad ass and Superman, the tongue in cheek 'KA- POW!' prints instill a bit of Superpower attitude into an every- day garments- that 'Hero' bag or 'Power' shoe just took on a whole new meaning. The colour pallet is warm with autumnal hues and cape-like, chiffon layers- not to mention the perspex.. I have already gushed all over this little beauty! Elegant, ladylike shoes, keeps the tone feminine and deters it from creeping into 'comic book guy' from the Simpsons territory. I may now finally realise my childhood dream of being Wonder-woman- even if only in the way of a Primary coloured, graphic bag that excliams 'BANG!'
