3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Hour Bag, $795 via Moda Operandi

When we talked about the 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Hour Bag last week, several of you inquired about when we might expect to see the uber-covetable bicolor versions of the bag hitting stores. It seems as though my suspicion that we’d have to wait for Spring 2012 pre-orders to drop for those bags to grace normal retailers was accurate, but look what I found in my email yesterday: the very first opportunity to get your name on the list for the bag that’s shaping up to be the biggest accessories debut of the new year.

Moda Operandi is preselling two versions of the bag until January 3: the red-and-black iteration above and a totally luscious green-and-black version that you can see below, both priced at $795. The black and white bag has still yet to be spotted, but if it ever bothers to show up, we’ll certainly let you know. Moda Operandi also has the clutches and pouches from the 31 Hour collection available ($295-$450), if you’d rather pick up something a little smaller.

    Both (and the black and white one) are beyond gorgeous. The leather looks super supple and the style is chic even though minimalist.

    I love it – BUT I hesitate to put half down this far in advance…I think I’ll wait.

    the bag is really nice, the colors are perfect…not the price
