First Look: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target (Hide Your Wallet to Buy Everything)
I am experience major designer collaboration fatigue. I find that it is getting harder to get excited about another designer collaboration. That said, I am really really looking forward to the offering from Target’s partnership with Phillip Lim especially after I got a sneak peek yesterday at the pieces. I am lusting for just about everything.
The offerings are dazzling and fresh. Also, unlike, many of the past collections where the silhouettes were re-invented, the pieces from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection are true to Lim’s personal design aesthetic. The shapes are different than what you would expect from a Target collab; they are structure, simple, modern and some “hip” pieces sprinkled in (hello Boom dress). The quality is really outstanding, the pieces feel very luxurious which might explain the higher price point (apparel $19.99 to $299.99). The combination between the quality and shapes means that you’ll have these pieces in your closet from season-to-season.
On the accessories front: OMG! The bags are just so delightful. The attention to detail is incredible and its hard to believe that they are so inexpensive. They look rich. If you’re anything like me, you will want them all for your collection.
The collection hits stores September 15. So get ready: plot, save and shop.
