Usually when we hear about something as awesome as a chance to collaborate with Proenza Schouler on your very own, custom Proenza Schouler PS1, we’re not lucky enough to ever see the results. That’s what I assumed would happen when I heard about this charity auction a few months ago, but luckily for us, a style blogger won the auction and now we have lots of photos of the finished product.

Megs and I: Incurable Proenza Schouler fangirls, as you all know. We both have PS1s (mine newly acquired via Net-a-Porter’s sale!), I have one of the duo’s simple wallets from their first-ever e-commerce venture, and it seems like we talk on nearly a weekly basis about what Proenza bag we’re thinking about buying or hopelessly stalking or dying to see in person.
It is no secret that both Amanda and I are extreme Proenza Schouler fan-girls. Every time Jack and Lazaro grace us with a new version of the PS1, we swoon. Sometimes a little bit of pizzazz mixed with a lot of classic is just what I crave, and these two bags from Proenza Schouler’s Holiday collection are calling my name.

As regular readers have probably noticed, Megs and I have different personal styles. I tend more toward black, she tends more toward brown. She usually chooses hippie-ish details, I prefer industrial finishes.
Proenza Schouler’s runway bags have always been a horse of a different color. While designs like the PS1 and PS11 are act as aesthetic pillar’s of the brand’s identity no matter the season, the bags that show up on Proenza’s runway are meant to be accents to a particular collection’s visual mood.
