Recently, Target debuted a new line of clothes designed by noted fashion label 3.1 Phillip Lim. The line features selections for both men and women for Fall 2013, all at prices that make the looks accessible to most consumers.
The line was announced back in May and has recently been showing up at area Target stores. 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target features a range of apparel and accessories, including shoes, bags and travel accessories.
“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said Phillip Lim via a press release at the time of the announcement. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.”
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target embodies Lim’s philosophy that clothing is meant to refine, not define. Rooted in a classic fall palette of neutral tones and prints, the collection features more than 100 items and ranges in price from $19.99 to $299.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $59.99 for accessories. Standout pieces for men include shoes, tees, sweatshirts and a leather moto jacket for men. Travel accessories, such as a duffle and multipurpose pouches for both women and men, round out the collection.
“Phillip is a designer we’ve had our eye on for years. His aesthetic is modern and sophisticated, and he shares Target’s vision of democratizing design,” said Trish Adams, senior vice president of apparel and accessories, Target. “This fall, 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target will offer our guests a compelling reason to update their wardrobes, with an assortment of versatile, beautifully tailored must-haves for both women and men.”
