Earlier this year we mentioned that Target’s next big designer collaboration is going to be with 3.1 Phillip Lim, and the images for the upcoming 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection have just been released!! The collection launches at Target on September 15, 2013, so we have just over a month to wait… and obsess over these fab looks!
The collection is based around clothing and accessories one might use or wear in the morning, at noon, and at night, so there are three pretty distinct color palettes at work. Morning clothing has a bit more whimsy, noon clothing is more polished and work appropriate, and the evening collection is perfect for a night on the town.
The 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection has a full line of items for women and men. Below we’ve shared the items from the look book that are for women.

Not everything from the upcoming 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection was included in the look book. The items above are the ones I’m most interested in checking out.
Overall, I am digging what I am seeing with this collection though how could I not? Y’all know how much I love dark colors and minimal patterns so this collection is pretty much my aesthetic in a nutshell. That said, I’m only remaining cautiously optimistic at this point because I’ve been disappointed by the past few designer collaborations.
My guess is that the trapeze bags are going to sell out immediately, the trapeze satchels in particular. This is a popular handbag style, and it’s going to be hard to resist these bags in such perfect-for-fall colors. I’ve got my eye on the gold bag above. We shall see about everything else.
For all of the men’s looks from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collection check out Refinery 29.
