3.1 Phillip Lim is expanding his bag repertoire at a lightning-fast pace and the Snobs are having a love fest with him. The Pashli took off in 2012, and now he is adding an array of easy-to-carry pieces to the 3.1 family. Like the Scout, now released in a mini-multitude of tote forms. The Small Zip Tote, in taupe or black goatskin, is equally palatable for weekend and work. A bag this essentially simple is one you won’t tired of, though the leaned silver-toned corners (do I smell an Alex Wang Prisma connection here?) add a razor-sharp element for intrigue (even if tit’s not the most original detail of all time).
But it’s the Convertible tote that really catches my attention. Carry the cutout-handle number three ways: as a youthful crossbody, an oversized clutch, or a north-south top-handle. With this many options, it’s the ultimate all-hours bag – it can change faster than you can! Black is just fine, but I find juicy tangerine far more irresistible. All available on Shopbop for $1,100 each.
