It’s become a seasonal tradition; immediately following the livestream of the Proenza Schouler show, the brand puts a couple of bags from the collection on its website for immediately pre-order. Sometimes they’re runway bags and sometimes they’re not, but for Proenza Schouler Fall 2012, they’re versions of the most eye-catching accessories from the show. And they’re furry.
The Proenza Schouler Akira Satchel and Proenza Schouler Large Chieko Clutch are both leather-backed bags covered in natural deer hides, the use of which represents something of a first for Proenza. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I can’t recall the brand making fur accessories in the past. As is delightfully typical, though, Jack and Lazaro have chosen to take the fur trend in a different direction than all of the designers who use fox, rabbit or Mongolian lamb. Check out the clutch after the jump, or pre-order them via Proenza Schouler for $4595 and $1215, respectively.
