In the weeks since Proenza Schouler’s beautiful Fall 2014 handbag collection debuted on the runway, our enthusiasm for the bags hasn’t diminished – they were, and still are, the cream of the New York Fashion Week crop, by a long shot. For the next few days, you can shop Jack & Lazaro’s newfound adventures in crocodile, stingray and fur at Moda Operandi, but get ready to melt your credit card doing it.
Proenza is making a bid to become America’s reigning European-style luxury brand, and with that comes ultra-premium materials and their attendant price tags. These bags start right under $2,000 for a fur-faced clutch, and they top out at $28,000 for an all-croc satchel. All of these bags are part of a new line for the brand, which they’re calling the Proenza Schouler PS Elliot Bag. Unfortunately, that’s not a clever reference to TS Eliot, in all likelihood, because of the difference in spelling, but a girl can dream. Check out the bags below or shop the full collection, including the excellent runway clothes, via Moda Operandi through March 6.
