Hey everyone, let’s give Proenza Schouler a warm welcome to the handbag marketplace! Their current collection is the first evidence that I can find of any foray into the major purse leagues, and if I’m correct in that assessment, then I’d say they’re also the Rookie of the Year. I love the entire line, but I think my favorite is the Proenza Schouler PS1 Leather Pouchette.

Proenza Schouler PS1 Leather Pouchette

At 11″ long, though, I wouldn’t call this a pouchette – I’d call it a great day-to-night clutch. For some reason, the double straps are totally winning me over and giving this bag a very retro-meets-modern, edgy look. They remind me of the belt-like straps that schoolkids use in old movies to hold their books together, and I think the idea translates very nicely as a way to hold together everything that you need for your day-to-day life. The name also reminds me of how New York City names their public schools, although I’m sure it’s meant to denote the brand’s name and their inaugural handbag line. I’m going to pretend it’s supposed to be school-y, though, because it goes along better with my personal conception of the bag. Buy through Barney’s for $895.
