Phillip Lim and his business partner Wen Zhou founded 3.1 Phillip Lim in 2005 with the aim of producing easy and chic wardrobe staples for men and women. The 3.1 in the brand’s title comes from the fact that both founders were 31 at the start of the label.
Producing clothing, bags and accessories for men and women, 3.1 Phillip Lim produces luxurious everyday essentials with an elevated appeal. Fine fabrics and expert cuts create sleek collections, from tailored trousers to flowing pleated dresses. Simple designs are met with unexpected materials and details to create unique yet refined pieces which evoke a sense of laid-back sophistication. Dramatic ruffles are added to minimalist dresses, crisp cotton shirts offer exaggerated puff sleeves and outerwear is consistently oversized. Neutral colour palettes are given pops of colour, and playful prints intersperse more pared-back designs. 3.1 Phillip Lim looks are finished off perfectly by covetable accessories such as the signature Pashli bag- available in a variety of shades, sizes and finishes, this bag is a go-to for any occasion. Platform slides will add nonchalant style to any look, while strappy heels are a perfect option for day-to-night needs.
With stores around the world, from New York to Seoul, 3.1 Phillip Lim collections can also be accessed online, via the brand’s website, as well as through Farfetch, Net-a-Porter and Harrods.
