Most of us don’t balk when designers use lizard skin (after all, lizards aren’t cuddly), but this is the first time I have seen a designer list the skin specifically as iguana. Growing up in Florida meant being surrounded by iguanas often. (When I say often, I mean we would see twenty or thirty around a pond in our neighborhood daily.) I prefer lizard skin over ostrich and the scales on this bag are really interesting because of the iguana skin. For me, this Proenza Schouler bag is a win in every sense, despite my mental image of those iguanas at our pond.
Bold red iguana skin helps the already coveted Proenza Schouler PS11 stand out and grab attention immediately.
I already have the PS1 of my dreams, and I’ve been eyeing the PS11 for what feels like years. There are so many colors and combinations being released, but this is one may very well be my favorite. The perfect hue of red is so ravishing and eye-catching that it is an accessory force to be reckoned with. The skin helps the hue stand out even more and gives dimensionality to the bag. For the finishing touches, the iconic PS11 gold and platinum signature inverted stud detailing finalizes the bag. The price seems a bit higher than usual for lizard, but I’m so in love it doesn’t even bother me that much. Price is $6,825 via Proenza Schouler.
