Pure Class: 9 Understated Phillip Lim It Bags For Girls In The Know

Understated, unbranded, but still super-luxe — that's the new generation of It bags, and 3.1 Phillip Lim makes some of the best. Lim's bags may lack telling iconic details, but, to the trained eye, that fold-over flap on the 31 Hour Bag or the side zips on a Pashli Tote are as iconic as the quilting on a Chanel 2.55.
Click on for our favorite Phillip Lim bags. From a new, cerulean version of his famous 31 Hour weekender to the shoulder bag that makes us actually like hobos again, each one is clean, contemporary — and just cutting-edge enough to catch the eye of the other cool girls on the train. It's good to be a part of Lim's club, ain't it?
