It’s become a seasonal tradition; immediately following the livestream of the Proenza Schouler show, the brand puts a couple of bags from the collection on its website for immediately pre-order. Sometimes they’re runway bags and sometimes they’re not, but for Proenza Schouler Fall 2012, they’re versions of the most eye-catching accessories from the show. And they’re furry.

The Proenza Schouler Akira Satchel and Proenza Schouler Large Chieko Clutch are both leather-backed bags covered in natural deer hides, the use of which represents something of a first for Proenza. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I can’t recall the brand making fur accessories in the past. As is delightfully typical, though, Jack and Lazaro have chosen to take the fur trend in a different direction than all of the designers who use fox, rabbit or Mongolian lamb. Check out the clutch after the jump, or pre-order them via Proenza Schouler for $4595 and $1215, respectively.

    Sorry, this is a truly disgusting desaster: I don’ t want to be spotted with a dead Bambi dangling from my arm :-(

  • mollypete

    Ok, that’s a baby deer.  It’s repulsive.  Sorry, I said it.

    Before I read the post I thought – why would someone dye fur to look like a baby deer?  And it’s an actual deer?  ugh!

  • Carriekon2

    they’ve use fur before, there are pony hair versions of PS1 & they’re gorgeous!  but these…poor bambi

  • melodymouse

    Revolting.  These bags, combined with the fact my new PS1 is falling apart, cements my decision not to purchase from these designers again.

     Akira Satchel looks like a hairy coconut!

    Ugh! Fur bags are gross enough already, this looks like a hunter stitched the skin together right after he was finished getting the meat off the bones.

  • Christofle

    Love the bag, the clutch is missing a little something…A leather trim border would of made it much nicer. 

  • Kouture Crochet

    Noo! Really, even if you don’t mind fur, I just don’t think turning bambi’s mom into a handbag is a good idea. I give this bag an F

    no thank you.. 

  • Martha

    These furry creatures are an unfortunate aberration from P-S’s usual elegant style.

  • ElleOnWheelz

    $4595? Wow, that’s ridiculous.

  • Kemilia

     Either the designer ran out of ideas or this is a sick joke. 

  • Kirstenreilly

    How could they possibly think that bambi bags would be well received? Horrible, tasteless.

  • Lulu

    I’m disgusted. Its too bold and in your face.

  • Meghan

    This is the most offensive handbag I’ve ever seen.  Not a fan of Proenza Schouler!

  • Rashida

    Terrible bag… just ugly!

  • BIR

    I usually like extreme exotics or rare skins used on bags but ………….. This is like wearing BAMBI so …. Not for me …..and the craftsmanship looks bad !!!!

  • Angeline

    Definitely NOT a fan.
    white spots equal first year of Bambi.
    Go figure.
