Designers like Fendi, The Row and Tom Ford all put great emphasis on fur during their Fall 2013 collections, both in ready-to-wear or accessories. For me, though, it was this 3.1 Phillip Lim Fur Front Leather Racer Bag that was not only a standout piece on the runway, but more importantly, redefined fur from the way I remember my great-grandmother’s mink fur coat. (Trust me, that thing was scary.) Even though I’ve been reading reviews and trend reports that fur is indeed on trend, I was hesitant until until my research turned into a shopping endeavor at Saks – that’s when I began to understand why everyone was lusting over the fur hype.
This 3.1 Phillip Lim bag is both a playful and sophisticated handbag, largely due to the size and construction. Because of the bag’s compact and functional size, the fur doesn’t look overwhelming, or to be blunt, like you are wearing a live animal dangling from your shoulder. This bag can be worn several ways, instantly transitioning this bag from day to night – it’s great as a cross-body, wristlet or simply a clutch. It’s the multi-colored rabbit fur color scheme that makes the bag distinctive among many other fur bags on the market. The price is hefty, but the payoff is worth it.
Try this 3.1 Phillip Lim bag through Matches for $700 and you may be surprised by what you think.
