Phillip Lim threatens to put us all to sleep with this Scuba Neoprene Clutch.
Fashion snobs might call it minimalist, but I think it looks like Phillip Lim forgot to design this purse at all! I don't mind a simple purse with clean lines. However I think you really need a more enviable material than neoprene to take such a fashion risk.
The material's not all bad. It'll cushion your cell phone and other important items, and it'll shed water like a duck's back so it's perfect for carrying in inclement weather. But it's just so ordinary. We really need some kind of decoration to add interest.
I don't mind the Scuba's innovative design. A zipper runs across the top to make it appear like a conventional clutch. Open that up and the clutch folds out flat. There's another zippered pocket on that surface, and I'd utilize it for anything of value. I'm just not convinced that other items wouldn't fall out the sides.
Personally I don't think Phillip Lim's done enough to command $175 here, but there's still plenty to admire. It's just a shame that the exterior isn't one of those aspects.
