About 3.1 phillip lim
Launched in 2005, 3.1 Phillip Lim was created by designer Phillip Lim and business partner Wen Zhou as an accessible luxury brand for the modern consumer. Named for the founders both being 31 years old at the time, the brand debuted with a collection of chic, everyday womenswear. Over the years, 3.1 Phillip Lim has expanded to offer menswear, footwear, accessories, and handbags while still maintaining Lim's signature aesthetic of casual elegance.
Lim's background as a home economics major and time spent working under designer Katayone Adeli influenced his hands-on, detail-oriented approach to fashion and understanding of clothing construction. His pieces strike a balance between classic style and subtle touches of modernity. Zhou's entrepreneurial experience enabled the fledgling brand to grow quickly into the global success it is today. Together, their partnership built 3.1 Phillip Lim into an industry leader known for its timeless silhouettes, dedication to quality, and ethical business practices.
3.1 Phillip Lim is now sold globally in over 12 countries and continues to pave the way in modern luxury. The brand works with the finest leathers and materials to create bags, clutches, and accessories with impeccable craftsmanship. Clean lines, subtle hardware details like branded zipper pulls, and chic color choices give each piece a quiet elegance. Phillip Lim's clothing receives acclaim for its attention to fit and wearability, rendered in soft textures and neutral hues that translate seamlessly from day to night.
As part of its brand ethos, 3.1 Phillip Lim partners with charities supporting youth, education, and human rights. Phillip Lim also founded the initiative More Than Our Bellies to support food-related charities and causes close to his heart as a lover of food, cooking, and community. Through quality, ethical production and a commitment to social impact, 3.1 Phillip Lim promotes mindful consumption and living life with purpose.
