In fashion, sometimes the right color makes all the difference. I’ve held off on buying many a handbag because the color wasn’t just right; sure, the bag came in purple, but it was a blue-based purple, and I like it red-based. Or the bag was beautifully designed, but it only came in black or tan, and I just don’t see the fun in that. Or maybe I wanted the grey just a hair darker, or a hair lighter – it could be anything. Rarely does a brand get color as spot-on correct as Proenza Schouler does with Peacock Blue, which is new for Spring 2013.
With this shade (and its little sister, Light Peacock), Proenza’s reignited my lust for, among others, the Proenza Schouler PS11. The shade works particularly well with the structured, thick leather used for the bag and the PS11 Tote, although my coworker Hilary has her sights set on the smoother, slouchier PS1 in the same color. Neither of us would turn down a suede PS1 pouch in Light Peacock, and the color even makes me reconsider (momentarily) my lack of enthusiasm for the PS13.
