Cambodian-native Phillip Lim founded his company in 2005—a debut that has since seen both critical and commercial success. His modern, youthful aesthetic appeals to those who seek accessible, contemporary fashion, yet still wish to maintain a sense of individuality. Favorites like the Pashli Handbag and Backpack, or the 31 Hour Bag enable their wearers to do just that, emanating an effortlessly casual, cool style. Which begs the question—is the secret to youth found in a bottle? Or in a handbag?
