Unique silhouettes and sharp leather edges is my impression of 3.1 Phillip Lim. The House presents extremely structured and refined accessories that may come off as undesirable to the classic-style Bagista. If you seek to get out of the comfort zone made up of roomy totes and elastic leather satchels, discover the framed and chic presentations of Philip Lim, such as the beautiful Pashli Satchel.
It appears to be overweight and hardly flexible, but it sure is vibrant and beautiful! I was initially drawn to the energetic shade of violet, which is either misguidedly named “Navy” or is falsely portrayed in its stock photo. Regardless, its appearance is lovely and will brighten up any mood or spectrum of your wardrobe. Give this satchel a walk around and you will see how functional this bag is with its distinctive compartments. Vertical zip pockets and a squared push lock closure are some neat Lim characteristics. In case you haven’t played around with this handbag yet, the vertical zip closures double as handbag extender. Simply pull the zipper downward and you’ll expand the satchels width, allowing extra carrying capacities. There are neat features throughout, but my only complaint is that they could have added more arm length to the double top handles, or at least a detachable body strap.
