3.1 Phillip Lim bags, $795.
Phillip Lim knows what it’s like to be busy–not only does he produce a super successful clothing line, but he’s also a man about town. An ardent New Yorker, he understands more than anyone how crazy our lives can be, and he’s finally made a bag to reflect it. Dubbed the “31-hour” bags, the collection is made for men and women who know how to squeeze every second out of their days. (It’s also a play on 3.1 Phillip Lim, but you probably already knew that.) The unisex line of bags are super roomy for trekking to work or doing weekend errands but at night, the cowhide carryalls turn can be folded easily and used as an oversize clutch. Conversely, if you find you suddenly need to lug some groceries home, you can expand it and sling it over your shoulder. Worth it!
