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.

Want It Wednesday Phillip Lim Chloe Rachel Zoe Gucci

How, you ask, do we have time to find new Fall 2013 things that we’re craving amid all the Spring 2014 Fashion Week fervor? Easy – we’re professionals. Professional thing-wanters, if nothing else. (Not a bad gig if you can get it.) This week for Want It Wednesday, we’ve managed to sit still long enough to find some stuff we’d like to put on our credit cards rightthisveryminute, and we’d also like to welcome back someone who you guys might remember as Intern Katherine – she’s a full-fledged, college-graduated human now, and a full-time member of the PurseBlog team!

If you’ve been following along with the collections at New York Fashion Week, you know that things going forward are looking a little more streamlined, a little modern. I, for one, am breathing a sigh of relief – this stuff is much more my speed, compared to the bling-and-brights look that fashion’s had going for the past few seasons. To incorporate that kind of slick, well-edited design into my wardrobe right this very minute, I’m lusting after the Rachel Zoe Faceted Bar Bracelet. The squared-off shape is just unexpected enough to draw a bit of attention, but the pared-down look epitomizes a simplified version of style that seems so appealing right now.

The second the chilly fall air arrives, you can bet I’ll be snuggling into plenty of oversized sweaters. With summer recently coming to an end, most New York City residents put away all their colorful clothes and go straight for their black winter attire, but not me. As a native Florida girl, I like to wear color for as long as it’s deemed acceptable. Searching for an appropriate colorful sweater for fall can be a bit of a struggle, but thanks to this 3.1 Phillip Lim Zim-Trimmed Techno Neoprene Sweatshirt, I’ve met my match. It’s bold, bright and can easily pair with a skinny black or printed pant. Now the question is, how can I make it mine? If you’re in the need for neoprene you can purchase this sweatshirt

There is something about a good wallet that really makes me a happy person. I mean, when you think about it, wallets might get even more use than some of your handbags. That’s why always keep my eye out for a new one. This week, I have my eye on the Chloe Aurore Wallet. The rose calfskin leather is simply gorgeous. Like any well-crafted wallet, when you open it, you’ll find a zipper pouch and plenty of storage. Plus, the signature padlock adds a unique touch. I’d be more than happy to swap out my current wallet for this one!

While we may be having summer-like weather here in NYC at the moment, I am yearning for the day when I can wear all of my fall apparel. That day may not be today, but I can dream, can’t I? And while I’m at it, I’ll also be dreaming about this Gucci Fur-Trimmed Wool & Silk Shawl. Fall is by far my favorite season because most fall styles exemplify effortless elegance. If we accessorize correctly, a pair of skinny jeans, boots, and an oversized top instantly look urbane. That’s why I am going gaga for this Gucci shawl. I will admit, sometimes oversized pieces are hard to pull off, especially on petite frames (I am only 4’11″), but because this is a layering piece, anyone can carry this look. Until the weather cooperates and my purse strings expand, I will just keep dreaming.

Check Out All the Bags from 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target

3.1-Phillip-Lim-x-Target-Handbags

Generally speaking, high-low designer collaborations have seen better days. They were all the rage for a while – Lanvin x H&M, anyone? – but at some point, they jumped the shark. I’m not sure whether that moment was the Missoni x Target online ordering fiasco or the Neiman Marcus x Target x Every Designer In America three-way flop, but it happened, and ever since then, our expectations have been low, if not nonexistent. 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target is here to restore some of our faith in high-low.

Most collaborations focus on clothing, which is easier to reasonably replicate for a fraction of the original price, but Lim went all-in on a capsule collection of inexpensive bags for both women and men as well. Some of the bags are faux-leather reinterpretations of Lim hits, most notably the Pashli, but there are also some new shapes, including an orange-and-purple leopard tote that’s the star of the accessories collection and a handsome blue camouflage backpack for men. Some fans will probably be mad at the Pashli spin-offs, but it’s exactly the type of bag that Target would imitate anyway, so Lim might as well get some of the credit (and revenue) for those cheaper versions.

Check out the entire bag collection for both men and women below; these pieces will reportedly retail for between $20 and $50 when the collection goes on sale at Target stores September 15.
