As millenial customers come of age and want ever-more-differentiated luxury goods, personalization has become a huge trend in the high-end handbag market. From Louis Vuitton’s long-running hot stamping service to Anya Hindmarch’s cheeky leather stickers, making a bag unique is easier than ever.
Back in September when the first sighting of Alexa Chung with her namesake bag, the Mulberry Alexa, surfaced, Purse Forum members began discussing the similarity between it and the Proenza Schouler PS1. It makes sense that they did, because there are definite similarities in the design. In fact, once the Mulberry Alexa started to show up online, the main buzz surrounded the likeness between the two.
Let’s take a closer look to see what the two bags have in common and what is different, shall we? (more…)
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.
One of our favorite handbag styles at the moment, the Proenza Schouler PS1, is now available on their website.

But really, how could you not adore this laid-back chic school-style bag? It strays from the structure that so many bags bring and gives an everyday wearable vibe that is at the height of the want-it list. (more…)
In the grand scheme of prices, $14,500 for an entire crocodile bag is not that bad. I am not too daft to recognize that it is an exorbitant price tag, but when you look at expensive designer bags all day long your sense of what is truly expensive versus what is not changes. And here I am telling you that $14,500 is not incredibly expensive. Let me make sure to state that it is expensive, just not relatively speaking. And I love the Proenza Schouler PS1, which makes me more apt to justify the price tag.
We have already covered the crocodile PS1 and I loved it then. But now I have three more reasons to love the Proenza Schouler Crocodile PS1 and it has to do with color. Vibrant coral, ocean blue, and bottle green to be exact. (more…)
