    Default 3.1 Phillip Lim Alix Circle Clutch

    Lim Alix Circle Bag.jpg
    I was a little surprised when I came across the 3.1 Phillip Lim Alix Circle Clutch the other day. I stopped, looked at it, and thought to myself "wow, that's different". After all, when most people think of 3.1 Phillip Lim, they think of the iconic Pashli Trapeze Bag. The clutch you see here just isn't something that you would imagine coming from this designer. But hey, breaking away from the expected is a good thing, right? So why not now, for the Fall 2015 collection?

    I must admit, it was the unusual handle that attracted me to this piece. The handle was actually inspired by a paper clip. You can't see it very well in these pictures, but the handle is not one continuous piece. Instead, the ends actually overlap or by-pass each other at the top (much like how a paperclip bends and by-passes itself). Your hand slips through the handle so that it rests on the back of your hand while you clasp the clutch. The look is quite unique and I think it pairs nicely with the circular design. I also love the subtle zigzag trim around the perimeter and on the front. You can never go wrong with tone-on-tone details.

    This is too weird for me. I love that Phillip Lim is trying something new, but did you see how this bag opens? Not very easy to get in-and-out of..

    Way different. I don't like the handle much.

    I think it's neat. Not practical, but neat.
