Et tu, Proenza Schouler? Really?

                                          Proenza Schouler PS1 Keep All Small Satchel.

It’s been a rough week already and it’s only Tuesday. First Balenciaga, makers of my favorite handbags of all time, decided to desecrate one of their classic bags with inexplicably bad fur trim. Now Proenza Schouler, another of my can-do-no-wrong favorites, has made a version of their usually lovely Proenza Schouler PS1 Keep All Small that I just…don’t like.

This bag is not as egregious as the Balenciaga tote, for sure, but most Proenza bags are so effortlessly cool and (in my mind at least) perfect that to see one of the brand’s classics miss the mark is jarring, to say the least. I like the shape and I like the materials when considered individually, but together? Eep.

The issue here is one of tone. Proenza has done well with its canvas PS1s in the past, and this is the same warm beige material that they’ve always used. Layering that with leather or embossed python sounds like a great idea in theory, but with this trim, they chose a color story that has absolutely nothing to do with the base color that’s sitting under it. The foundation of the print is graphic white, cool gunmetal grey and ice blue, which could look more random against a warm neutral. The fiery yellow and red-orange are the final icing on the WTF cake.

Proenza Schouler is usually a master at mixing colors and patterns in ways that make me swoon and endlessly re-plan my wardrobe budget, but I can say with confidence that this is a bag on which I will pass. That’s too bad, because with a few tweaks, it could have been quite beautiful. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1250.

The oversized bags have been temporary put on hold and they are making room for the tiny bags. Funny though, because in 2009 Chanel decided to remove the jumbo single flap and instead, they introduced two new larger bags – the jumbo with double flap (heavier than the single flap) and the classic maxi flap bag.

For now, we are seeing a storm of mini sized designer bags running out of the factory – to name a few; the Louis Vuitton Capucines BB tote, Prada Extra Mini Saffiano Bag, Lady Dior Mini Tote, Fendi Mini Be Baguette Bag, the Celine Mini Trapeze Bagand we can go on forever.

I belief every girl needs a tiny bag in their wardrobe, there is always a moment that they become very useful, like for the chic evenings and when going the night clubs. They are light weighed, enough to store your most important essentials and usually very appealing.

Mini bags like the Chanel Extra Mini Classic Flap Bags are super cute. They are adorable and go literally with almost everything you have in your closet.

For the Fall 2014 Collection, Proenza Schouler decided to join the mini club by shrinking their famous PS11 shoulder bag into a tiny accessory, specially made for us to love. Kate Bosworth and Rachel Zoe have already learned to appreciate the PS11 medium bag, but the PS11 tiny bag is the next level of love.

The Proenza Schouler PS11 Tiny Bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap, change it to your level of comfort. Embellished with signature inverted stud-detailing, the silver embossed Proenza Schouler logo can be found underneath the flap. The interior is refined with jacquard lining and it’s even made to structure your items – one interior compartment with two leather trimmed pouch pocket.

Measuring 7.5′ x 2.5′ x 6.5′ (L x H x W),

The Proenza Schouler Elliot Line has just been released for the Fall Winter 2014 Collection. The shoulder bag is kind-of the next PS1 bag, which has been recognized as the brand’s classic.

READ: Proenza Schouler Elliot Bag Collection

The Elliot line consists not only shoulder bags but also totes and clutches, its designed minimalistic with the new front clasp that has been turned vertical opposite like the PS11 turn-lock. Made from the finest material including exotic leathers like python and crocodile, for the lower-priced version you can also comfort with suede or just leather.

Just recently, Proenza Schouler has announced the new Mini Elliot Shoulder Bag, which is in my opinion a gorgeous handbag. It’s perfect in everyway, the bag has shrunk in size but not the beautiful turn-lock, and it’s the same size as the medium version.

The bag comes with a shoulder strap, it’s now available in red or black, made from leather and suede front flap. Measuring 7’ x 2.5’ x 5.5’.

Major Obsession: Proenza Schouler's PS1 iPad Case — and Clutch

Categories:Other Brands

With celebrities and fashion girls alike fawning over Proenza Schouler's famous PS1 bag since its inception in 2008, it's safe to say the bag has become a "classic" in its own right. Now designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have reinterpreted their iconic design into an amazing iPad case available in four eye-catching colors (red, purple, black, and smoke). Given, it's an investment, but think of it as a double-duty investment: you can use it as an iPad case and also as an oversized statement clutch when you're not toting around your electronics. The styling options are endless — pair it with a Summer maxi dress to a garden wedding or play into the downtown vibe and pair it with jeans, a white blazer, and metallic sneakers for a cool weekend look. Convinced? We are.
