Proenza Schouler hosted limited press previews of Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2013 last week, which presents a few problems. Namely, we want to see the bags, but Proenza only releases a limited number of collection images to the public, and they’re all full looks; you can see half a bag in some of them, if you look really closely. What’s a bag lover to do? Take it to the people, of course.

As it turns out, Instagram isn’t just for putting hazy filters over photos of your lunch. If you know where to look, it’s also a decent source of behind-the-scenes info in a slew of industries, including fashion. Naturally, some editors and buyers took some pictures of the Proenza Pre-Fall 2013 bags to show to their followers, and we’ve found a few to tide you over until the collection’s in-store dates get a little closer. Our favorites? The painterly, color-shifting PS11’s above, from London-based buyer Tiffany Hsu.
