This bag is kind of ridiculous…in a good way. You know what I mean. It is so over-the-top and crazy that it crosses the line and eases into “awesome” territory. 3.1 Phillip Lim knows how to deliver the goods when it comes to zany fur bags, and that’s no easy feat. This one actually reminds me of Tom Ford’s punk-inspired fur bag I saw my friend Sandra (of Sandra’s Closet) wear last year.
Like Sandra, if you’re carrying this personality-packed satchel, you just gotta own it and be bold. Think about it: nobody ever got anywhere by being really shy! Deep, electric-violet fur, complete with a mohawk, delivers serious rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and so should you. Chunky metal jewels and elements of hardcore leather are welcome.
The fur is only on the front of this leather bag, exactly the way it should be. All fur bags should be one-sided; fur rubbing against your body will eventually rip it right out. Love it or hate it, this one definitely makes a statement. And I love a strong statement. 3.1 Phillip Lim small Ryder satchel at Marissa Collections for $1,250.
Pair with: A badass ear cuff makes for a genius accessory pairing. VICKISARGE’s cuff, decked with ruthenium-plated Swarovski crystals, sits totally diagonal across the ear for added edge. On NET-A-PORTER for $330.
