Shop Proenza Schouler via Net-A-Porter
Since the handbag world has mostly been atwitter (both literally and figuratively) over Proenza Schouler’s new patent leather PS1 satchel for the past week or two, another addition to the line has snuck onto the brand’s site a bit under the radar: the Proenza Schouler PS1 Pouch crossbody bag.
We’ve known that this design’s debut was coming since the brand included it in the Resort 2011 courtesy shots, but now it’s here and available for purchase for $1225. The crossbody comes in two materials and three colors so far: tobacco suede, green leather and smoke leather. I love the green, but I’m going to wait until the rest of Proenza’s resort pieces come out before making any purchasing decisions. I also wouldn’t mind a black-on-black version of this bag, which I expect we’ll see sometime in the future. (Ok, so that might be a bit of magical thinking. Maybe we can all believe it to be the truth and make it happen so that I can buy one. Help me out on this.) Buy through Proenza Schouler for $1225.
I want to scream out all sorts of Rachel Zoe-isms at this stunning handbag. I DIE! Bananas! Shutting it down! It is not that the design is new to us, as we have looked at the Proenza Schouler PS1 many times before. It is this version, with the most luscious, vivacious deep purple python skin, that is killer.
