On Sept. 15, New York designer Phillip Lim’s first capsule collection will hit Target stores. The fall collection consists of 100 items for both men and women including apparel, shoes, bags and travel accessories ranging in price from $19.99 to $299.99.
“One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible,” shared Lim in a recent press release.
Separated into morning, noon and night outfits, Lim succeeds in designing a solid collection of clothes accessible to the everyday men and women with busy lifestyles. Creating stylish apparel and accessories for the fashionable shopper on a budget, Lim crafts a capsule as wearable and versatile as his original 3.1 ready to wear designs.
Based on a classic fall palette of neutral tones and prints, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target embodies Lim’s philosophy that clothing should “refine, not define.” Cream trench coats, dark trousers, gray sweaters and sleek button down shirts are paired with animal, floral, camo and graphic prints to add just the right pop of color.
Among the many covetable offerings, Lim’s bags deserve a shout out all of their own. With a variety of satchels, work totes, duffels and a new version of the designers trademark Pashli, Lim creates a well-constructed set of bags with an entirely utilitarian purpose. Coming in shades of mustard, orange, olive, eggplant and black, these structured bags look much more 3.1 than Target.
