3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Soleil Shoulder

31_phillip_lim_mini-soleil-shoulderAs much as it looks like something from Saint Laurent, it isn’t. Instead, it’s the Mini Soleil Shoulder from 3.1 Phillip Lim, one of the 5 styles from the Soleil line that also includes a drawstring bucket in two sizes, a tote and of course, this shoulder that also comes in 2 sizes.

Starkly simple and minimalist to a fault, the bag’s most striking feature has got be its slinky chainlink sling that’s a nice contrast to its boxy leather body. Measuring almost 20 cm across by 15 cm, it’s available via Net-A-Porter for GBP575. Or head over to 3.1 Phillip Lim (they do ship internationally) and check it out in colours like Flesh and Frost (along with Black) which sells for USD695, and USD487 if it’s on sale, like the one in Frost.

My only concern? For those with long hair, will it get stuck in the tightly woven chainlink sling? You tell me.

    Definitely a simple and minimalist piece! Quite architectural actually. Nice lines on the front. Have to say though I can’t get out of my head the similarity to Saint Laurent.
