3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute Clutch Bag with Printed Pony Hair

stored and adored designer bag blog

The 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute Clutch Bag is a really well considered designed. Essentially, the shape is modelled on the classic "pouch", but the bag is modernized with a few simple changes. The 31 Minute Clutch enjoys a trapezoid shape, a wide base and a slim top, as well as soft rounded corners. The overall look is rather chic and understated, allowing room for the brand to play around with more adventurous colours or designs. 

On this blog, I have already featured a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pop Art 31 Minute Clutch Bag, a 3.1 Phillip Lim Bubble 31 Minute Clutch Bag and an embossed 3.1 Phillip Lim "OMG" 31 Second Clutch Bag. Taken together, these all give a very good insight into the kind of modern clutches that 3.1 Phillip Lim is producing. The 31 Minute, and the slightly smaller 31 Second equivalent, are staple styles for the brand, but the designs that are featured on these bags are changed each season.

Either side of this particular 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute Clutch Bag feature something different. On one side of the bag (as you can see above) there is a panel of bold printed pony-hair, and on the other side of the bag there is a panel of textured white leather. This textured leather features prominently in 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Bags, and it is particularly scratch-resistant. With most white leather bags I might worry about their durability, but I know from experience that the leather used by 3.1 Phillip Lim is quite robust. 

Personally, I really like this type of dual-aspect handbag. It offers you a fun print, as well as something much more demure; and it brings to mind the phrase, "business in the front, party in the back". However, I do know that many people view animal-printed bags in this particular colour scheme as another type of "neutral", as it is a pattern that is surprisingly easy to wear. As far as "out there" bags go, this one would actually be pretty easy to pair with anything from a cocktail dress to jeans-and-heels.

I don't typically buy or re-sell anything that I don't adore, so it makes sense that I'm pretty mad for this 3.1 Phillip Lim bag. I think that the brand really knows how to make cool, wearable pieces, and in terms of functionality they're really practical too. 

You can purchase a number of authentic pre-loved 3.1 Phillip Lim bags from Stored and Adored's online store.
