Proenza Schouler always leaves its best handbag theatrics for venues other than its runway shows, but the purses that grace the hands of the brand’s models are always worth a look nonetheless. Proenza Schouler Fall 2011‘s handbags (and we mean “handbags” literally – all were clutches) were more straightforward and useable than that non-intuitively shaped totes of Spring 2011, and in a variety of textures, finishes and color combinations.

The double-compartment clutches represented a strong option for day-to-night wear, and the bicolor orange-pink iteration is very much in keeping with Fall 2011′s color trends. Also trendy is haircalf, which graced parts of the all-black version as a textural juxtaposition to Proenza’s beautiful leathers. If you’re more interested in the brands PS1 staples than in its runway bags, make sure you check out the limited-time Fall 2011 pre-orders we posted about after the show!

    Not a fan. The knit looks like it was “inspired” by Missoni.

    They’re lovely – really like all the colours and finishes. :)

    I think the shorter ones work better than the taller ones, though; as the belt looks a little narrow on the taller ones.

    Very classy.
