The Pashli Predicament

Written by Helen Hackwell on Thursday, 10 October 2013.

3.1 Phillip Lim Red Pashli Satchel

The 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli satchel... yes/no, iconic/forgettable, classic/fad?

I’ve longed to own a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag since I first spotted one pop up on the my-wardrobe.com website about two years ago! Handbags (or indeed anything) that cost £££s are never whim purchases for me, they’re well thought out and based on the outcome of various pros and cons charts. My main concern when investing in something like the Pashli, is whether it will stand the test of time and become a classic piece, or whether it’ll fall by the wayside and be put away at the back of my cupboard never to see the light of day again. I wonder if the Pashli has the staying power of the Mulberry Alexa, a now iconic satchel style.

Investment concerns aside, my other dilemma is which colour would I go for if I were to purchase one. I'm pretty enchanted with the gorgeous red version above, that being said, part of me is saying that a more muted tone would be the practical choice, but when have I ever listened to my ‘practical voice’? Other favourites include the new shark-embossed leather variety, which wear much better than the regular leather versions and come in a range of deep autumnal tones.

Pashli bags from NET-A-PORTER.com Cobalt-Blue Pashli from NET-A-PORTER.com Off-White Pashli from NET-A-PORTER.com Black Pashli from NET-A-PORTER.com

Both my-wardrobe and NET-A-PORTER have the Pashli bag in stock and colour depending, I’d probably be more likely to look to my-wardrobe.com as they’re currently offering 25% off full price items with the code WINTER25. It’s worth keeping an eye on sites like Voucherbox UK as they’re pretty hot off the mark and normally post the latest codes before I even receive them in my inbox!

    Oooh I love these - I want one.

    I love the red too, but as you say maybe not the most practical choice. If you buy one you would want to use it all the time, despite the colour of your outfit!

    I would personally be boring and go black! It is gorgeous with the gold though!
