Both Megs and I hold a special place in our hearts for the Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag, and I only find myself liking it more as time goes on. Jack & Lazaro’s decision to have their black-on-black beauties hand-embroidered with a grey pattern for fall just makes my heart flip all the more, and it was already flipping quite a bit over the simple leather PS1s.

Sadly, I won’t have to start making arrangements in my budget and closet to accomodate one of these lovely bags, because they sold out almost immediately upon their Net-a-Porter debut yesterday morning. But a girl can still dream, right?

Usually I eschew patterned bags (unless they’re animal print, of course), but this one has my attention. The obvious neutrality of the color choices would make it just as easy to work this bag into my wardrobe as one that was only black or only grey, and you get so much more visual interest when you combine the two into this geometric, slightly tribal-leaning pattern. This bag probably won’t do anything to convince women who are still skeptical of the PS1, but for those who are already in love, it’s an unexpected treat. It retails for $1825, and you can add it to your Net-a-Porter wish list for stock updates.

    Generally I like the tribal aesthetic, but for some reason I don’t find this version of the PS1 appealing. For the people who like this design, it’s available at La Garconne as well.

    Side Note – I’m convinced that Net-a-Porter marks all of their new products “sold out.” In reality, it’s just not in stock yet.

    first sight, cute! but this is probably the only ps1 that i think would be cuter if it had a small size..

    I am not a fan of the PS1. The fabric is okay, but I like the black and gray.

    I don’t like the pattern… Sorry! Maybe it’s because I don’t like large messanger bags in general!

  • Fashion-Fanboy

    When I first saw this bag, when it was in stock, I fell IN LOVE !
    I’ve always (since the first time I saw it) been a huge fan of the PS1 !
    I’ve never either really been a fan of prints on a bag (not even animal prints), but this is so special and so “not over the top, yet with print” !
    I mean this bag could go great with anything ! And that is very hard for a bag with prints to do !

    I’m not cool enough, I don’t get it.
