To Covet: 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Coral Pashli Satchel

By Butterboom Writers  /  February 22, 2013

The unstoppable ‘it’ bag in spring’s hottest shade.


Since it burst onto the scene in Fall Winter 2011, 3.1Phillip Lim‘s Pashli satchel has been the ‘it’ bag of fashionistas.  For Spring 2013 the Pashli has gone one better; it is now available in new sizes;  mini and medium, and a range of bright new colours that are perfect for the season.

Our favourite comes in coral; we are betting this will be spring’s hottest shades. We like that the coral softens the grungy stylings of the bag with a pop of feminine colour.

Made from the finest leather, the Pashli was originally inspired by the practicality of motorbike bags; functional and transitional from day to night.

Both sizes feature a push-lock flap, zip gussets, which essentially give the bag two different looks, and gunmetal hardware. Rolled top-handles are joined, for the first time on the larger size, by an adjustable cross-body strap, which is a welcome relief as any bag that’s big enough to fit a laptop and more can become a bit of a burden. Inside there is a single patch pocket for your hard to find extras. Despite the fact that we’re a few seasons in, this bag is not going anywhere fast, and for good reason. It’s effortless grungy cool fits in perfectly with this season’s 90s trend and the design and versatility speak for themselves; who are we to argue.
