I find comic book femme fatales particularly endearing - a killer combination of power, danger and sexiness can weaken and destroy even the strongest of men. To me, a femme fatale is a woman with thick red lips, eyes on the prowl, skin dripping white like snow, her endless legs veiled in a villain’s cape, she lurks, she seduces and she ensnares her victim. For Fall 2012, Phillip Lim takes inspiration from Sin City and V for Vendetta, he artfully combines his image of a femme fatale with pages from a black and white neo-noir comic, producing graphically poignant pieces echoing prints from Roy Lichtenstein for Pre-Fall 2012 and contrast colored layers and accentuated waistline creating a woman of illusions for FW 2012 runway.
