We all know the Proenza Schouler PS1 is not going anywhere and this utility-chic version is yet another option to consider.

Fresh for 2011, the Proenza Schouler PS1 gets a color and material makeover with brown leather, black suede and beige linen. The colors are meticulously placed on different areas of the bag, giving a very clean and eye-catching appearance.

I have the Proenza Schouler Crossbody Pouch along with the bag I am currently carrying from Rebecca Minkoff picked out as my two favorite crossbody bags (with very different prices).

I have a chartreuse leather Proenza Schouler wallet that I use daily and find absolutely indispensable, so if you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive (under $200, seriously) gift for yourself or your lucky, lucky friends this holiday season, I really cannot recommend the Proenza Schouler Mochila Wallet strongly enough. Introduce one of these little guys into your life. You’ll thank me.

Since the handbag world has mostly been atwitter (both literally and figuratively) over Proenza Schouler’s new patent leather PS1 satchel for the past week or two, another addition to the line has snuck onto the brand’s site a bit under the radar: the Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch crossbody bag.

We’ve known that this design’s debut was coming since the brand included it in the Resort 2011 courtesy shots, but now it’s here and available for purchase for $1225.

Style.com just posted this exclusive Proenza Schouler promotional video to mark the launch of the much-anticipated patent leather version of the brand’s must-have PS1 satchel, and although it’s shot through a grainy vintage camcorder and perhaps slightly Dadaist in its copious oddity, we recommend you take a look and cringe together with us when they cut to the shot of a beautiful, lonely PS1 partly submerged in water.

I know that I had deemed this category Want it Wednesday, but what happens when you can not wait until Wednesday to share what you want? You post Friday! Which is precisely what I am doing.

Proenza Schouler introduced the PS11 the night of their Fall/Winter 2010 show. Since its first look the design has been another hit for the brand.

Both Megs and I hold a special place in our hearts for the Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag, and I only find myself liking it more as time goes on. Jack & Lazaro’s decision to have their black-on-black beauties hand-embroidered with a grey pattern for fall just makes my heart flip all the more, and it was already flipping quite a bit over the simple leather PS1s.

Before Vlad and I headed to NYC to find an apartment, I told everyone on Twitter that if we found a place I was going to reward myself with a new bag. I had decided it would either be a Balenciaga bag or Proenza Schouler bag. Well, hello! What was I thinking? A move to NYC is very expensive, especially when it comes down to all of the fees.


As if I needed more reasons to adore the Proenza Schouler PS1… This video from Net-A-Porter not only gives us more looks at the bag itself but also gives us insight on the design of the bag straight from the designers themselves.
