As if I needed more reasons to adore the Proenza Schouler PS1… This video from Net-A-Porter not only gives us more looks at the bag itself but also gives us insight on the design of the bag straight from the designers themselves.

Here are some interesting facts about the Proenza Schouler PS1:

1 ) It was supposed to be the anti-“it” bag
2 ) The PS1 is like a school boys bag stripped of everything with no logos
3 ) The PS1 has never and will never be shown on the runway
4 ) The duo was looking for a low key bag that flew under the radar
5 ) This is the first bag designed by Proenza Schouler (what a hit!)
6 ) They would not create a bag until they found the perfect craftspeople in Italy to do so
7 ) Jack’s favorite version of the PS1 is brown suede (coming soon to NAP)

I was already set on buying a PS1 and now I am double set, if that is even possible. This bag is the epitome of cool and the designers behind the bag truly did not know what a major hit they would have on their hands with their now iconic PS1. Shop Proenza Schouler Bags at Net-A-Porter.

    I’m still praying for this one to magically fall in my arms hopefully as an anniversary gift.. hint hint!!

    I loooove this in purple suede. Hoping to snag one at some point.

    I thought schoolgirl from the moment I saw this bag, which meshes well with my personal style. The rasberry with goldtone hardware is divine, too bad it’s sold out.

    I dropped by Barney’s, Beverly Hills, day before yesterday and noticed that the Proenza Schouler shelf has been restocked. There were PS1s in black, kelly green, a rust color, I think it was, and a suede yellowish, lime green color, which although I like bright colors, I found to be scary. LOL!

    Stop torturing me! I really really want this bag, but I’m nowhere near buying it (cannot afford it anytime soon). The fact that the designers never intended for the bag to be an IT bag, and everything they say about subtleness, no logos, great quality… it so speaks from my heart. I love love love this bag. Gotta start saving big time!

    Oh, they are so adorable! I love the PS1!

    I am glad many people are excited about this style, but to me it’s, “Meh.” Sorry. I think guys can get into this style too as it works with the masculine look, IMHO.

      I totally agree with T-girl. This is like a manbag. It also reminds me of my children’s school bag and perhaps if i were a teenage girl, this may be cool but i doubt I would spend almost $2000 on this when there are so many cheaper versions of this. If I were still in the corporate world, this bag is too sloppy for the office.
      While I can appreciate the designers’ thoughts behind the bag’s design (ie not trying to be the IT bag or have lots of logos), I have never founded this bag to be that original or breathtaking.

    I am not a fan of the PS1. It’s just not my style. It’s too boyish for my taste. I am too much of a girly-girl to wear something like this.
    However, I do appreciate what they were hoping to accomplish. I love the philosophy of no bells and whistles, no logos, and no presence on the runway. These guys are very smart. The PS1 will undoubtedly be just like the Hermes Birkin, LV Speedy, and classic Chanel flap.

    I love this bag! Usually my style is much more girly but I adore the PS1 bag – especially in the raspberry and brown leather! Its practical, stylish and timeless. I love what Proenza Schouler is trying to accomplish with it too. I have added it to my wishlist!

  • somethingbags
