I know that I had deemed this category Want it Wednesday, but what happens when you can not wait until Wednesday to share what you want? You post Friday! Which is precisely what I am doing.

Proenza Schouler introduced the PS11 the night of their Fall/Winter 2010 show. Since its first look the design has been another hit for the brand. With the return of ladylike structured bags, the PS11 is able to bring an edgy touch to an otherwise structured shoulder bag.

The brown leather used on this version is some kind of combination between luggage and tobacco, which results in a perfect hue of rugged chic. The hardware detail is what makes this bag stand apart from the other structured shoulder bags we are seeing (think Celine). Overall, I have this yearning desire for a structured bag that is still young and hip. This is the option. Buy via Net-A-Porter for $1,850.

    Hm…I think I’ll stick with the PS1, even though the hardware against the leather is quite nice.


  • dnfl

    this reminds me of a certain hermes wallet .. i forget which one

    • Kay

      Yes. Hermes medor clutch.

  • Rachel

    I love that! It does remind be of Hermes and Celine…but a little edgier. And the color is perfect!

    • I see that too – Hermes paired with Celine. It is a great combo though!

      • Jacq

        I see so much of Hermes in Celine, all the little details and the more blatent shapes i.e Celine’s take on the Clemence and even the Luggage has certain parts of the Birkin etc.

    i’m not loving it as much as PS1 … especially those extra square hardware on both sides of the clasp …. it would have been a neater design without that

  • louch

    Not a big PS1 fan at all but LOVE this. Does remind me of Hermes but not too much. I would buy this in a shot.

  • MizzJ

    Love it too! I actually bought a very similar (much cheaper) version from Zara haha. The color is so rich on this one and that gives it a very warm, luxurious feel, and the hardware makes it look unique!


  • Vasaki

  • edoardo

  • Kat

    I am not liking the clasp. Also, I’ve always preferred gold hardware on brown. The color, however, is gorgeous!


  • Rebeca

    hermes medor!

  • Staci

    I agree – the hardware really makes the bag.

  • 19yearslater

    It’s lovely but I still prefer ps1

  • Karin bag4bag

    Loving it ! Wanting it !

  • Vitta

    They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. But don’t we expect from our young, talented designers something more edgy and less commercial in terms of ideas? This is the time to set the trends, not just to follow them.

  • M

    I really like it! This is one of those bag that can be used in many occasions. I want it!!! xxx


  • JJ

    Not really loving this one. The biggest draw of the PS1 for me is the leather. The leather on this bag looks a lot thicker and tougher, not the least bit soft. The hardware is pretty, but there’s really nothing very unique about the bag itself. I wouldn’t spend that kind of money for a satchel with pretty hardware. Sorry!

  • Vasaki

    I am a fan…I like it…oh!no sorry….I LOVE IT!!

  • Young Sophisticates

    This bag is beautiful!


  • babe

    Design idea leftovers – all put in one bag.

  • Cara

    I love how it is a cool youthful take on the ladylike trend. Some of the other structured minimal bags can seem boring. This bag is just right. Love the colour also.


  • EvaKnox

    Love the color, one of my faves

  • mochababe73

    I am not a fan of the PS1 at all. I have yet to see the allure of a handbag that looks like a schoolbag.
    However, I really like this one. The color, the hardward, and the fact that it actually looks like a purse.

  • ninjaninja
