I used to be very much anti-camouflage. I remember the trend coming around when I was in high school, and I always felt very clever telling people that I thought camo should be worn by combat troops and No Limit Soldiers only, which is why you’d never find me wearing it. We’re all so cute at that age, aren’t we? As an adult, I’m more open-minded, and Valentino recently proved that camo can indeed be done in a successfully high-end way. Right now, though, we’re pretty interested in 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Camouflage Bags.

My knee-jerk reaction to this print was resistance, but after a few second of rumination over the 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Hour Camouflage Bag (the clear winner of the group), I started to imagine scenarios in which it’d actually look pretty good. The camouflage-printed canvas isn’t too much like what you see soldiers wearing on the news, but it is close enough that you know exactly what it’s supposed to be. With a casual, simple outfit, I wouldn’t be mad at this bag at all. The other two, though, are pulling off this look a little less convincingly.
