3.1 Phillip Lim Medium Soleil Tote: The Soleil is Rising

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

3.1 Phillip Lim Medium Soleil Tote

You may be taking a cute, little clutch out on the town tonight, but come tomorrow, you’re going to want a bag with function and the latest from 3.1 Phillip Lim offers all the ease and space you need on top of a look that you would normally never associate with utility. Tina raved about the shoulder bag version of the Soleil, and this shape deserves just as much attention. It’s a little more unusual, as is the take on classically chic black and white. In gleaming, aggressively in-your-face stripes, the color combo is given an almost dangerous feel. The perfected size keeps the look under control, though, whether carried as a top handle or casually over the shoulder. While the Soleil is more than capable of speaking on its own, I say go all out with bright, colorful prints. Spring is here, and the Soleil is ready to shine!

3.1 Phillip Lim Wednesday Small Boston Satchel From Resort 2015 Collection

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

3.1-hillips-Wednesday-Small-Boston-Satchel-pink

When it comes to the brand 3.1 Phillips, then I am inspired by the co-founder Wen Zhou. In her childhood, she came from a town that had no plumbing and no heat. She once said in TIMES: ‘The thing I remember from childhood is the soothing sound of my mother’s sewing machine putting me to sleep. It’s nostalgic to me. I wanted to do better’.

3.1 Phillips Lim is a young brand, just like the Proenza Schouler, but they are doing very well. And like very designer brand, they also have their own classic accessories that shine above the rest, one of them is the31 Minute Bag. And the second is what we belief, the Wednesday Boston Satchel.

You see, this bag was also spotted in the Spring Summer 2013 Collection, the Wednesday Boston was crafted in white and natural crack. It was a work of art. A divine piece that’s quite impressive and distinctive.

Now for the Resort 2015 Collection, the Wednesday Boston comes in a small size, it has been beautifully painted in pink and blue. The color is a timeless, once you got it, you can wear it in every summer. And what I adore the most is the light pink color that goes well in your white summer dress or short. You can mix it with different bright colors to create an interesting effect.

Though unavailable at the moment, we will keep you posted about its release. For those who are interested, it’s made from cow leather. It features two flat doctor bag handles and it comes with a handy adjustable shoulder strap. You get an interior pouch as a bonus and its measured 10’ x 12’ x 7’ (H x W x D).

The price?

$825 USD for the pink and $825 for the blue, I am loving it.

3.1 Phillip Lim Accessories Fall Winter 2014 Collection

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

1 / 15

It’s Spring BRAGMYBAG! Explain to me, why are you showing the Fall Winter Collection? We do not blame you for yelling at us, but we just can’t help it. We needed to find out 3.1 Phillip Lim’s next seasonal accessories before making a ‘productive investment’ on our wardrobe.

If you are like us and love to be ahead of the curve, then slide through the images to see what 3.1 Phillip Lim has in stock for the Fall Winter season.

What might captured your attention is the minimalistic boxy tote bag, it’s actually called the ‘Rayder bag’. And it’s as practical as the Chanel Vanity Case, which are totally in-trend right now. And it’s not surprising to see the iconic Pashli bag in oil print. This print was introduced by Proenza Schouler in one of their previous Collection. The shoes are alluring yet very distinctive, like Suede black pumps with large block heels, Pink Sandals with ankle strap and all in leather.

3.1 Phillip Lim Wednesday Boston Bag: Natural Crack

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

3.1-Phillip-Lim-Wednesday-Medium-Boston-Satchel

I picture the spring fashion with flowers and more colors than the rainbow, but 3.1 Phillip Lim has other ideas. For the SS2013 Fashion week, the Boston satchel was shown in black and white speckle. Allow me to define it more specific, with natural cracked appearance unevenly distributed throughout the bag. Is it too much? I am speechless, but then again unusual designs are very inspirational and distinctive.

The first impression about the cracked leather might be: ‘Is it soft or hard?’. Well, even though the black cracks look more like dried-up paint, the material used is lambskin. Surprised? Knowing this, the new Boston bag actually looks quite good, doesn’t it?

Pre-Order 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Awesome Spring 2014 Accessories at Moda Operandi

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

3.1 Phillip Lim Wednesday Cracked Leather Boston Satchel

Fashion Week is fun and all, but it’s a different kind of fun to check out collections once they hit their first pre-orders at Moda Operandi, usually mere days or weeks after first debuting on the runway. It allows us to find out design names and prices of our favorite bags, like these from 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2014, a lot sooner than we normally would, plus it gives consumers a peek at the non-runway accessories that we can expect from the brands once full collections hit stores.

Lim’s accessory presale is the first to really give us pause this season. Not only is the brand new 3.1 Phillip Lim Wednesday Bag included in several different iterations, including the standout cracked leather version from the runway, but so are Ryder bags in new colors. The fan-favorite Pashli gets both a super-trendy holographic finish (for the mini version) and a super-trendy backpack shape, both of which sort of feel like Lim throwing a bone to the accessories fads of the moment. Check out the accessories from the sale below (it also includes shoes) or shop the full selection via Moda Operandi.

3.1 Phillip Lim’s Spring 2014 Handbags Go Back to Nature

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2013 Handbags (5)

When I say that a collection swings a little bit Prada, that’s generally a compliment, both in general (Prada is great by post estimations) and in particular when it comes from me (I am an unrepentant Miuccia fangirl). Phillip Lim is likely a fan himself, or at least his accessories designers are – 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Spring 2014 Handbags at times felt like an homage to the Italian powerhouse.

If you took all of the extra bits and pieces off the fronts of these bags (and seriously, why is there so much stuff hanging from them?), what you’re left with are largely simple shapes with flat, squared top handles that are only appropriate for hand-carrying, like the bag you see above. With its marbled finish (recalling both Prada Spring 2010 and last season’s Balenciaga), Saffiano Lux Tote shape and the aforementioned flat handles, which Prada uses periodically, if seen out of context, I’d be hard-pressed to guess it were anything but Prada.

I don’t necessarily mean any of that to sound like a criticism; in fact, the bags that were the most Miuccia-esque were the best of the collection, and the marbled version above is one of my favorite bags of the new season thus far. The small, boxy bags and miniature shoulder bags with straps too short for shoulder carry (why do designers keep trying to make those happen?) were interesting, but give me a wide, flat, printed version any day of the week. Lim has a knack for handbags, and those will be the big sellers when this collection hits stores, mark my words.
