The day we've been waiting for has finally arrived! It's time to shop — both in-store and online — one of the most anticipated Target collaborations yet: 3.1 Phillip Lim. Have yet to decide on your shopping strategy? Not to worry: you can see each and every piece here.
Most of the items fall between $20 and $75, with bags for both men and women priced under $60. Leather jackets for men and women are around $300. Best of luck! We have a feeling it'll sell out fast.
If Daft Punk wrote the music for the Blue Lagoon movie remake, the result would be something like the beauty look at 3.1 Phillip Lim's Spring 2014 presentation. Inspired by the holographic sunglasses in the collection, lead makeup artist Francelle Daly featured iridescent purple shades in the makeup concept. After incorporating a few drops of Copacabana Illuminator ($30) to tinted moisturizer to give the entire face a highlight, she added bluish-purple tones to the face using the Luxor Multiple ($39). The finished look had a pearlized effect, with blue and purple undertones that shimmered in the runway lighting.
While skin was luminous and futuristic, the hair was more like a trip to Gilligan's Island. Paul Hanlon wanted the hair to be savage, as if the models washed up on a deserted beach. He dampened the entire head with Osis Grip mousse ($19) and Twin Curl ($20) before tying strands in a knot at the nape. Then, hair was diffused dry for a chunky, dreadlock finish.
Since launching his brand in 2005, Phillip Lim has mesmerized women worldwide with his distinct chic-meets-edgy aesthetic. For Lim, it's all about adding an unexpected twist to everyday sportswear; think crystal-embellished t-shirts, dramatic draped cocktail dresses, and leather-sleeved blazers. The designer's handbags have also enraptured everyone's attention, particularly the Pashli, a ladylike satchel featuring bold exposed zippers. Shop 3.1 Phillip Lim's latest.
Between the multitude of New York Fashion Week runway shows, there are also a handful of fabulous parties — and one of the most anticipated was the 3.1 Phillip Lim For Target soiree. The bash brought out stylist stars like Jessica Alba and Solange Knowles, who both came with their 3.1 ensembles (how great is that "Boom" sweatshirt?). Also on hand for the fun were Phillip Lim's fellow designers Richard Chai and Marchesa's Keren Craig. Come along with us as we celebrate the 3.1 Phillip Lim For Target party with champagne, celebs, and shopping — and don't forget to snap up pieces from the collection when it hits Target stores on Sept. 15.
On Thursday night, Phillip Lim hosted one of the most anticipated events of New York Fashion Week: a party celebrating his Target collaboration. Everyone from Solange Knowles to Jessica Alba and Maria Sharapova attended the event, and all of them were wearing pieces from the offering.
The rest of the party's guest list, which included Lim's fellow designers Richard Chai and Marchesa's Keren Craig, had the opportunity to shop the collaboration early. Throngs of attendees took that opportunity, which meant the party was packed and more than a little busy. But with the chance to get pieces of such a great collaboration 10 days early, what else could you expect?

Phillip Lim debuted at Fashion Week with a presentation of his Fall 2006 collection and then showed his Spring 2007 collection the following season on the runway.
