Proenza Schouler’s New PS1: American Graffiti

Saint Laurent Jacket, Proenza Schouler Bag, J Brand Jeans, Balmain Shoes, Fallon Necklace

I never thought the day would come when my old self would be back in fashion again. I rocked an outfit very similar to this when I was in high school (except my leather biker jacket was not Saint Laurent; it was probably Contempo Casuals, as were my acid-wash jeans). So I’m feeling a little nostalgic at the moment. Pointy white stilettos were so my thing back then, and I’m so glad they’re back (to the dismay of my chiropractor)! Especially in Balmain form(on Luisa via Roma for $967), topped with an angular metal heel. And I would have traded every single sticker in my Hello Kitty/My Melody collection for this Proenza Schouler PS1 graffiti bag (at Barneys New York for $2,375). This latest edition is my all-time favorite out of all the PS1 incarnations (and you know how many there are!). Even over the exotic versions.

Let this masterpiece own the spotlight, and keep it cool and simple with J Brand’s skinny jeans in distressed gray (at Barneys New York for $214). Then add a blast of biker-luxe with Hedi Slimane’s rad investment jacket (on Net-a-Porter for $5,290). Finish it all off with Dana Lorenz’s FALLON biker choker (on Shopbop for $325), and it’s 1987 all over again for me.
