Musings From Phillip Lim, Erdem Moralioglu, And Giles Deacon

-------

To kick off New York fashion week, Lifestyle Mirror and TheCorner.com debuted their new three-part series of editorials and videos, Designers and Their Muses, today. Before they roll out the full series, featuring designers Phillip Lim, Erdem Moralioglu, and Giles Deacon and their respective muses (Lissy Trullie, Sara Moralioglu, and Jessica Gough), Style.com has an exclusive glimpse at what’s ahead. Here, see each designer talk about these ladies who continue to inspire the look and feel of their brands. Insight into what’s in store from these three leading designers in the days to come? Don’t rule it out.

Phillip Lim And His Superheroes

-------

“I was actually never really a video game or comic book kind of guy—I always just loved clothes,” Phillip Lim tells Style.com. But things have changed for the designer, who looked to neo-noir comic book heroines in V for Vendetta and Sin City for inspiration for his Fall 2012 collection, and he has just come out with his very own comic book (with the help of illustrator Jan Duursema, of Star Wars fame, and her prolific co-writer John Ostrander). “The idea of dual lives and a heroine with an inner strength was where it all started,” he says, citing Alexa Chung, Lissy Trullie, and Oh Land as some of his real-life leading ladies. “I am surrounded by these heroines every day, all around me, so it seemed fitting to make the city in my head come alive.” Will we be seeing the theme continue into Spring 2013? “The spirit of the character exists in every collection I do—it is very much the spirit of the Phillip Lim woman,” he says.

Style.com got the exclusive first look at the full book, called Kill the Night, before it debuts on Fashion’s Night Out (he will be on hand at his NYC boutique to sign copies for customers who buy something at the event). For those who aren’t in New York, visit the designer’s Web site (31philliplim.com) to sign up and get a printed copy. Our favorite part? Every superheroine look in the book is shoppable.

Beamon’s Burlesque

-------

You can’t judge a book by its cover, but often you can judge a bash by the line at the door. At Erickson Beamon’s jewelry presentation at Milk Studios yesterday, 80 people were queued up outside the burlesque-in-Berlin-themed presentation, which drew on styles from the 1920′s and ’30s. But this was less a presentation than a party. The event was styled as a cabaret, complete with a live performance by the Citizens Band and bejeweled models sashaying across the room in drop-waist dresses. Zoë Kravitz, Penn Badgley, Lily Kwong, and Johnny Weir were a few of the many who had made it in to check out the show.

As the tempo increased, Citizens’ Sarah Sophie Flicker—dressed in a velvet corset, feather headdress, and little else—took to the stage, impressing the crowd with her acrobatic high kicks. “If there’s one person in the room that’s a bigger ham than me, it’s Sarah,” said Michelle Harper, who was decked out in one of Beamon’s most elaborate necklaces from last season. “I’m seriously in love with this piece; I want to wear it every day.” Monique Erickson, who is rarely photographed without her trademark crystal headdress, replied, “Well, I do! Honestly, I wear this thing everywhere, literally like the burger joint on the corner.” Around 10 p.m., the crowd shuttled out, bound for more performances at Milk by the likes of Lissy Trullie and Wu-Tang Clan.

Fashion Week, Turned Up To 11

-------

Every New York fashion week is filled with its fair share of memorable performances, both at shows and at the host of after-parties. This week should be no exception. On Thursday night, the Citizens Band, spearheaded by Karen Elson and Sarah Sophie Flicker, is set to turn Milk Studios into a sexy boudoir for their burlesque-style performance in Erickson Beamon’s “Deca-Dance” presentation. (They will, of course, be wearing Erickson Beamon pieces.) Following the cabaret show, Lissy Trullie, Cleo Le-Tan (sister of designer Olympia Le-Tan), Venus XX, and rap group Wu-Tang Clan are each doing a set at Milk for the MADE and Lexus Launch Event. If that’s not enough to make your night, the Kills’ Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince (a.k.a. Mr. Moss) will be rocking out at the Standard’s Boom Boom Room—we’re told it’s their last performance for a long time before they go back to the studio to work on their next album. On Friday night, the Ting Tings and Santigold (who fronted Alexander Wang’s T ad campaign for Fall ’11) will be on hand to put on a show (Ting Tings) and DJ (Santigold) at The Box for a Glamour party. The following day, Style.com has learned that actress and singer Alia Shawkat, familiar to many from her starring role in the much-missed sitcom Arrested Development, will be singing during Rachel Antonoff’s presentation at Drive In Studios.

Twice The Fun With Chloë Sevigny And Opening Ceremony

-------

Apparently, one party per day does not suffice for the Opening Ceremony crew. Yesterday afternoon, Humberto Leon, Carol Lim, and Chloë Sevigny collected a typically heterodox crowd to their garden party preview of the new Chloë Sevigny for O.C. collection: Spike Jonze (left, with Sevigny), Kim Gordon, skater Jason Dill, performance artist Justin Bond, and designer Eddie Borgo were among the notables nibbling finger sandwiches as friends-of-Chloë like Rita Ackermann, Lesley Arfin, Lissy Trullie, and Jen Brill modeled the new looks. (The five dress styles, by the way, are named after five of the friend/models, too: Lissy, Lesley, Winnie Wong, Alanna Gabin, and Sophie Aschauer.) Sevigny, in a leopard-print dress and reversible baseball jacket from the collection, noted that she likes to show her clothes on friends, rather than models, because she designs sportswear “that’s meant to be worn by real people.” “It’s not a runway collection,” she said, as Terry Richardson popped off a few impromptu shots of the girls in hot pants. “The clothes are for doing stuff like this, hanging out.”

Sevigny went on to say that the new collection’s vibe was derived from early Benetton and Esprit de Corps, and that the sure-to-be-everywhere printed tights and socks represent the summa expression of an obsession with legwear that dates back to the eighth grade. “I remember wearing a pair of striped tights to the first day of school,” she recalled. “I guess it’s been a thing for me since then.” At that, the clock chimed seven, and it was time for the tea and macarons to be packed away. On to party number two, at Santos, where a bevy of O.C. regulars turned up to celebrate both the collection and Leon’s birthday. Needless to say, the mood was a little less genteel. By midnight, “Edge of Seventeen” was playing and the dance floor was packed. Sevigny was nursing a drink in the corner. And sure enough, she was wearing tights.
