The duo behind Proenza Schouler, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, just finished their Fall/Winter 2010 show in New York City Fashion Week. They joined many other designers in live-streaming their show, which was crisp, brought us close-up views, with the only downside being that it started 26 minutes behind schedule.
What did Proenza Schouler have in store for us from their Fall/Winter 2010 collection? We saw graffiti high waist skinny jeans, which were created in collaboration with J Brand. The toggle coats are sensational, completely wearable and calling out to everyone who was at the show. The color palette was dark and lustrous with touches of blues. Dimension was added with fur.
Now we get to the Proenza Schouler bags. As I mentioned earlier, the PS1 does not go down the runway as it is not part of the runway collection. Tonight we were introduced to the Proenza Schouler PS11, the structured sophisticated sister of the PS1. There are many similar elements to the coveted PS1. The buckle detail which takes center stage in the PS1 is merely a slight addition to the PS11, sitting at the bottom of the bag. There is also a back zipper pocket, same as what you will find on the PS1.
The PS11 offers more of a structured look and a smaller size, which will transition brilliantly from day to night. Inverted stud detail catches your eye along with the combination of gold and platinum buckles and hardware. The PS11 is the edgier sister to the PS1 and we are loving it.
For the next 23 hours you can pre-order the PS11 in either black or saddle leather for $1850 via Proenza Schouler online. Keep in mind the bag will not ship until July 30th, 2010.
