Fashion designer Phillip Lim has unveiled his newest 3.1 Phillip Lim collection! And guess what? You can get it at your local Target! In case you’ve missed him on the fashion scene, since 2005 Lim has been known for rejuvenating fancy-shmancy wardrobes and turning them into fresh, trendsetting ensembles. And his latest fall collection will be available on September 15.

Yeah, at Target!

His mini satchel with cross body strap is a must-buy at only $34.99! And it’s available in yellow and black! Just to give you some perspective, his larger non-Target collaboration bags go for around $800 in the retail market. Needless to say, I will be sleeping in the Target parking lot on the 14th. No stranger to the spotlight, Phillip Lim was also the proud recipient of the CFDA Accessories Designer of the Year Award for 2013. New York magazine has described the designer’s style as “laidback refinement with moments of romance,” and his sleek designs are favored by celebs like Rachel Bilson, Lauren Conrad, and Kate Bosworth.

His clothes this season are beautiful navy and neutral fall colors: tailored suits, classic little black dresses with texturized embellishments and faux leather accents. That’s always a plus for us animal lovers.

For the guys, 3.1 has a classic trench and some fierce Chelsea boots that will carry you from fall to winter. My ultimate mens favorite look is his No. 19 outfit in the look book; the navy tailored suit for around $110 is a great gift to spruce up that special man in your life. Or for your laidback weekends, you can rock it out with his take on the black or white high-top sneaker and French terry sweats in charcoal – My fave for the guys.

The women’s lounge wear features pop art “Boom!” sweatshirts paired with tapered French terry sweat pants and sleek-yet-flowing fall dresses that create a new Twiggy-gets-jiggy genre. Don’t worry, girls! Total starvation is optional.

“One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target,” Lim revealed, “is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.”
