Legendary Hong Kong department store Lane Crawford has commissioned four artists—Rain Li, Victoria Tang, Elle Muliarchyk, and Yi Zhou—to explore and capture, on film, Paris, New York, Beijing, and Hong Kong through the eyes of a "Phillip Lim Woman."

"For me the clothes were the constant," Lim told Dazed Digital. "I actually really wanted the directors to capture the energy of the city they were working in. I think this was achieved—It is interesting for me to see that three of the four directors chose to film at night time? and this, I guess, was their way of portraying the mystery that was already created with the trench coat. It was really enlightening for me to see the interpretation."
