3.1 Phillip Lim Large Pashli in Forest Green

stored and adored preloved designer bag blog

I've already written a very in depth review of 3.1 Phillip Lim's Pashli Bags, and in that post I mentioned that I hadn't ever gotten my hands on one of the larger models. 3.1 Phillip Lim make this style in 3 sizes, with the smaller and medium sizes being the most popular (and the only ones available to buy new from department stores here in the UK). The larger model is sometimes available in the US, but these models seem to be restocked much less often. 

Very recently I managed to get my hands on this gorgeous pre-loved 3.1 Phillip Lim Large Pashli in Forest Green. Based on the design - note the chain zip-pulls and zig-zag detail around the edges of the bag - this is an older Pashli model; the newer models have leather zip pulls and straight, rather than zig-zagged, edges. Additionally, this larger size wouldn't have been sold with a shoulder strap so it is a bag that is designed to be carried by hand or on the crook of the arm.

This pre loved 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli is in pretty good condition - everything works just like it should do, and key elements of the bag are in good condition (the handle, base and corners). The bag has definitely seen some wear and as a result there are some areas that have lost a bit of colour. Unfortunately, this seems to be a bit of a theme with 3.1 Phillip Lim handbags, and I often see preloved models showing signs of colour loss. Luckily, it's easy to improve the appearance with the help from coloured leather conditioners, and these can be used whenever colour loss starts to appear/re-appear. I'll be treating the bag before it's sold, so with any luck the new owner will get their hands on something that looks almost as good as new.

You can purchase this 3.1 Phillip Lim Large Pashli from our authentic pre loved designer bag store, along with other pre loved Phillip Lim bags as well as other designer brands.
