Just when you thought that the Proenza Schouler PS1 had come in every version that you could possibly imagine, the minds behind Proenza Schouler have reinvented their staple satchel yet again. The Proenza Schouler PS1 Tiny Bag sits between the classic Medium version of the bag and the top handle-lacking PS1 Pouch, and it fits perfectly with the huge, ongoing trend of designers shrinking down their signature pieces for a crossbody-loving consumer market.

Dakota Fanning was spotted two days ago on the first day of spring in NYC, toting her “Light Peacock” blue Proenza Schouler PS13 Bag. Kudos to Dakota for rocking the bright seasonal hues at the first available opportunity, despite the less than spring-like NYC weather. (We were just gushing about the new “Peacock Blue” Proenza Schouler blues last week!) You can grab this bag in 5 different shades for $2,250 at Proenza Schouler.
An interesting design on a well-known bag is sure to get people talking, and that is what I know will happen with this Proenza Schouler PS1. The boys behind the brand released an array of artistic bold prints for Spring 2013, and my favorite rendition is the crowd print. We didn’t cover this bag in our previous roundup, but I’m glad we left it out so I could highlight it in more depth.
When Proenza Schouler hit big with its PS1, everyone waited to see what the duo would create next. The next big handbag design from the company was the PS11, and the minute I saw it, I was hooked. I find the PS11 to be an ideal mix of everything I like in a bag: sturdy, structured, and downtown cool.
Today, I am taking you on a journey through a gallery of images of my favorite Proenza Schouler PS11 bags, because why not?
Does this signal the beginning of a major shift in celeb handbag-carrying proclivities? Kate Bosworth is the first non-fashion celebrity we’ve spotted with a Proenza Schouler PS13 Satchel on her arm. As you’ll remember, the PS13 was shrouded in mystery until last month, when pics were finally unveiled. The bag, a part of Proenza Schouler’s Resort 2013 collection, just became available for sale this week – you can get your hands on one for $2495 at Net-A-Porter.
First, I will admit that my thoughts on the Proenza Schouler Large Leather-Lined PS1 are probably more complex than they should be, and definitely more complex than would indicate optimal mental stability. I’ve been carrying a Large PS1 as my everyday bag for a year, though, and in that time, I’ve formed a couple of opinions. (Who, me? Opinions? I know you’re all shocked.)
If you’ve owned a PS1, or even spent any time examining one in a store, you probably understand why the brand initially chose a jacquard textile instead of leather or suede as its default lining.
When the reviews for the Proenza Schouler Resort 2013 collection started rolling in this past summer, I became agitated. Not because of what I saw, but because of what I didn’t – the reviews mentioned a bag known as the Proenza Schouler PS13 that had been shown at the brand’s press previews, but not a single outlet published a picture of it.
Some accessories are a match made in heaven, and I have found a combo that’s beyond stunning. All I want to do right now is buy both of these items and wear them all summer long, with my crisp whites as well as casual boyfriend jeans and t-shirt. This pair and all of its possibilities are precisely why I love accessories; they’re outfit-changers.
If there’s two things that all of us at PurseBlog love, it’s handbags and sweets. If you’re here, you already know about our handbag obsession, but if you follow PurseBlog on Instagram, that’s where you get a much deeper look into the collective psyche of our team. Spoiler alert: Our collective psyche is covered in frosting, much like this awesome Proenza Schouler PS1 Birthday Cake from Sweet Kat’s Creations in Chicago.
Not long ago, I said that my feelings toward Thursday Friday’s line of bag-on-bag printed totes had “softened.” At that point, Balenciaga was the latest designer to have a photo of their work plastered on a canvas tote bag and sold for up to $90 apiece, and like Hermes and Chanel before it, Balenciaga is a huge brand with a huge corporate structure behind it to protect its work product.
