Women and Handbags - "A Love Affair" 


3.1 Phillip Lim introduces The "31 Hour Bag"

Sometimes there are not enough hours in the day. You plan what you can, throw the rest in your bag and let the day unfold. You need an effortless bag that carries you through the day and transforms you into the night.

Differ...ent days, different ways, but the 31 hour bag stays the same. A supple nappa leather in a classic tote shape with a play on proportion.

A functional form with the signature fold-over lip and large zipper closure allows you to carry just enough of what you need but leaving room for the promise of more.

Come see samples of the bags which come in a variety of colors as well as a presentation on the whole "idea" behind the collection. Guests will also be able to pre-order their very own bag.
