What does it take to be effortlessly chic? Injecting the ultimate style accessory to make your life so much better. It may sound a bit strange, but what is the deal with Phillip Lim? He’s one of those brands that sort of just sits in the designer crowd and never really comes close to the spotlight. I know during Fashion Week season, we see so many designer bags on everyone’s arms. It is like arm candy for kicks and can inspire the handbag cognisor in all of us. What happens when he doesn’t get picked out?

Sure, we see stylish Gucci, classic Chanel, and so much more. But why does the fashion train have to not include Phillip? Have we really turned that corner where we only flock to certain “it brands” over others? Anyone who adores bags as much as I do, will love any brand no matter the price point. Truth be told, not every higher priced item is good quality. If you love to gravitate towards a good deal now and then, you’re in luck! Not only is this brand mysterious, but ultra-affordable.

Let’s delve into this forgotten brand, bring him out of the stormy weather and bring him into the spotlight!
Phillip Lim is an American designer of Chinese decent whose parents immigrated to America from Thailand. Lim co-founded and worked at the LA based-fashion label Development from 2000-2004. In the fall of 2005, He co-founded 3.1 Phillip Lim with pal and business partner Wen Zhou, becoming the company’s creative director. Lim has garnered both critical and commercial success with his edgy line.
Lim’s goal was to showcase street elegance into his designs and give off pretty but cool attitude, while not trying too hard. Phillip proved himself as being a well-established accomplished tailor, who paid close attention to detail for the ultimate polished appearance.
It isn’t just his countless collections that are versatile over the years. His handbags are the most gorgeous pieces fashionistas have laid their eyes on in a very long time. Who needs the usual Gucci Marmont bag crowding up our feed, or that boring LV neverful that resembles wall paper. When you can sink your teeth into this street style bag, filled with picture perfect royalty.

Not only does it come in a variety of colour and sizes, but you never miss a beat with trying something new. And even though he has been around for years. His bags are still droll worthy especially, when you get a good deal!
