Here I am again talking about the it-bag that was never supposed to be an it-bag which ended up making it an it-bag. Are ya following me? Because the duo behind Proenza Schouler exudes their genius by marketing a bag as an anti-it-bag that is anything but that.

If I were to personally splurge on any suede bag, it would be the coveted PS1. You all hear me constantly talk about the problem with keeping suede clean, and I fully understand that this rose hue would be that much more difficult, but I love this color for spring.


This rose colored suede is simply romantic. It will work perfectly with resort stripes or spring florals. I love the combination of a light and airy hue with suede. Something about this pair seems unlikely yet entirely fitting. We all know the Proenza Schouler PS1 is not going anywhere and this utility-chic version is yet another option to consider. Buy via Net-A-Porter for $1,595.

  • Roya

    The Rose is so stunning, love.

  • joycee

    What a pretty color! This color reminds me of miu miu… but I bet it’d take TONS of caring! (ipad)

  • Mousse

    The color is pretty but I wonder how the straps will wear. I think this is not a good investment bag. (ipad)

  • Tonya

    I love the color Rose it’s beautiful and so is this bag! (ipad)

  • Rachel

    I’d definitely be worried about the handle dirt on this color and in suede. But I agree…very romantic color. The PS1 is next on my wishlist- just deciding between large and extra large.

  • 19yearslater

    This would look wonderful for springtime. This version is a little too girly and delicate for my taste but plenty of ladies would absolutely rock it. (ipad)

  • Marianna

    Since most of us who frequent this blog and tPF adore and own many handbags, having a rose suede one in our collections is not crazy. Most of us own plenty of “work horse” bags and we can pick and choose when this lovely would come out to play! (ipad)

  • Mochababe73

    I really, really, really love this color. I am all about the pink, and this dusty pink is a winner. I am still on the fence with the PS1 and PS11.

  • Emma G

    Just gorgeous but I would be so worrued about getting it dirty (ipad)

  • Linda

    Pretty but too high maintenance to worry about keeping it clean. (ipad)

  • Emma G

    Just gorgeous but I would be so worried about getting it dirty (ipad)

  • edoardo

    The color would be amaizng on other materials, on the suede it looks a bit boring…not so important and fresh as i would like to see by PS.

  • sosti

    i’m not so into this bag style, but the color is really pretty (ipad)

  • Chic ‘n Cheap Living

    Love the color in theory but it’d probably be impossible to keep clean in practice (ipad)

  • Veira

    Lovely colour for a perfectly chic bag (ipad)

  • Chris

    I love the pink version. However, I am not sure if the colour will last – I would be worried that it fades or turns to some grey-pink after one season. (iPad)

  • Diane

    nice design but not my color… (ipad)

  • Olivier

    It is so pretty! (ipad)

    I love Proenza Schouler PS1 in Large or looking at Barneys, they have the Leather Keepall! (I’m the kind of girl who likes big bags):

    Love all these dusty rose colors coming out (ipad)

  • ninjaninja

    Great bag for work or school. (ipad)

  • SS

    I love this bag. Being pink suede, it’s the kind of thing I would immediately spill a cup of coffee on (or something equally horrifying), but I love it. (iPad)

  • XXAL

    ps1s are the most beautiful in light suedes! loved smoke and grey.. i cant help but imagine them being worn with a hat, scarf and gloves! it would be in my arms if the alexa wasnt hehe

    yes this would be perfect with striped and florals but how often do we really wear them? (ipad)

  • dalex

    This bag is so interesting. At first glance it is very blah and plain, but it’s plain-ness is also very captivating. It’s a very beautiful bag in person. Attractive without being flashy and logo plastered. (ipad)

  • Yun

    So light and easy Rose colour!! Great for spring (iPad)

  • milwifey

    Beautiful bag for spring but I would flip if I spent that much $ on a bag and accidentally spill coffee on it. (ipad)

  • Flora

    Hi,
    This bag is probably gorgeous, I abslotuly love its colour.
    When I was 7 years old (I’m now 39)almost every kid on school had a similar one (well it was indeed very simple, leather dark brown colour with straps to carry it on the back).
    It is amazing that after all these years I can relate to an item that brings me so good and memorable moments.
    The colour is amazing.
    Obrigada / Thank you

  • Flora

    My mistake…In the previous post I meant “This bag is gorgeous… absolutely”. Trying to think english and writting at same time is never easy.
    Sorry

  • Ellen

    Oh Proenza Schouler, why must you consistently taunt me? I love nearly every iteration of this bag. (ipad)

  • Adrienne C

    nice bag! (ipad)

    great bag for all occasions (ipad)

    love the simplicity of the color (ipad)

  • S.J.

    ans the fact that its suede (ipad)

  • Stephanie

    The rosy color makes this bag look simply divine. I’d definitely be extra careful if I were to bring this around with me.

  • Tracey G

    love the dusty rose (ipad)

  • LDJ

    I like the color, but you really have to be careful with the color. Its like carrying a white purse/bag. It doesn’t take much for the color to fade or to become dirty. Im starting to like PS1s(ipad)

    I love the color and love the softness. (ipad)

  • Candace

    It is so pretty, but I would get it dirty in 0.0000001 seconds. If they made this in soft pink leather, I would get it. (ipad)

  • Jsays

    it just gets better.but i prefer leather.(ipad)

  • Jelita78

    the it-bag that was never supposed to be an it-bag which ended up making it an it-bag.. yeah, i absolutely get it!

    I probably wouldn’t be able to take this bag to work. But the style and color is so casual and cute… (ipad)

  • nini

    Hopefully there’s something similar for less. (ipad)

  • wendy

    Wow, this is gorgeous. Impractical, but gorgeous. (ipad)

  • Beth

    The bag is too “girly” because of the pink. (ipad)

  • Diane Bassette

    This is a really nice bag!! great size! (ipad)

  • Selene

    Proenza Schouler PS1 is not really a fashionable bag. I appreciate the no labels concept and simple elegance. However , the bag is anything but elegant. It also doesn’t show much imagination. I see the inspiration drawn out from my private school days backpacks but still the bag lacks glamour. There’s no wow factor here.
