Dubbed the collaboration to revive collaborations, 3.1 Philip Lim for Target may be just what we need to restore our faith in designers going cheap (let’s not even talk about that Neiman Marcus holiday collection). The Chinese designer, praised for his perfectly tailored womenswear and blogger-beloved totes, creates a refreshing mix of sleek blouses, blazers, structured pants, and more—all of which, in true Philip Lim fashion, are minimalist yet incorporate stunning details that offer just the right dose of edge—like the barely there embellishment on the collar of this crewneck. Coveting Lim’s leather handbags but cringe at the pricetags? You’ll appreciate that the collection, which launches September 15 and starts at a cool $19.99, includes some stunning handbags that are nearly identical to the real deal. Now, mark your calendars, and peek at our faves here.
