3.1 Phillip Lim “Lynus” Portfolio Shoulder Bag: A Furry Situation


I’m torn. Literally, between tearing this random tuft of fur trim off this otherwise solid bag. I’m totally loving the everyday style, suited for the impossible-to-buy-for bag snob, but why the fur? The strap is removable (I’m also confused as to why it would be, since this doesn’t translate to a clutch), so the fur can be slipped off. Leading me to another “but” – you’re paying for the fur, so why would you remove it? Sure, it’s only inexpensive rabbit that can be discarded relatively guilt-free, but, but, but…! So many buts about this bag.

Well, on the flipside, touchable lambskin looks great in this welcoming shade of brown, and the big flap pocket is genius: you get the fold-over look, without the complications. Everything else about 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s bag is so easy. I suppose too easy, hence the flair of fur, designed to function like a tassel. But I don’t like tassels! At Saks Fifth Avenueicon for $695.

Pair with: I’d scrap the fur and get my flair another way – a big Lanvin cocktail ring. This new one is a dark abstracted flower sparkling with Swarovski crystals. On Net-a-Porter for $470.

  1. That fur thing is so random. Not crazy about the bag, but it may be because my eye keeps looking at the blue fur.
