Trend Watch: Comic Book Fashion

by on August 21, 2012

Comic books have influenced Fall fashion in a major way thanks to 3.1 Phillip Lim. I definitely want to get my hands on a thing or two from this trend.

3.1 Phillip Lim is paying homage to the classic “The Break Up” comic in their latest collection; below are some of the items available on Net-a-Porter. The pieces are bright, serving as the perfect pop of color and conversation piece for your outfit.

While looking over SoleStruck the other day for my post on the Jeffrey Campbell ‘Cleata’ shoe, I came across this Black Milk x Jeffrey Campbell collaboration, which features comic book-print heels. Black Milk is the Australian brand responsible for the majority of those galactic-print leggings, swimsuits, bodysuits, dresses, and other accessories you’ve seen in that recent outer-space trend. I think it’s safe to say that Jeffrey Campbell needs no introduction at this point, but the combination of the two was much-anticipated and highly lucrative.

My favorites are the Night Lita, Damsel and the Lita Fab, all featured in the “Sick of Men” comic print. I definitely think this is a trend and collaboration worth indulging in.

See these shoes up close & personal here, as well as the entire Black Milk x Jeffrey Campbell collaboration.

What do you think of this trend? These shoes?
