Fall 2013 is the season for big game. Whether it’s leopard, tiger, or zebra, you have to get in on the animalia action. Obviously, my adventure into the wild begins with bags. Kelly loves Givenchy’s cow-printed Antigona, but I’m all about the leopard ($3,440). For cow, I would have to go with Tom Ford’s Jennifer ($4,350) – the addition of solid color relaxes the print.
Proenza Schouler’s latest and greatest, the PS Courier, is going to a steal a lot of bag-snob hearts. Mine included. The Proenza trademarks remain in tact, so there’s no mistaking who created your bag, but streamlined and mostly unadorned leather combined with a laidback attitude makes for a fresh delivery.
Proenza Schouler has struck oil yet again! I was just lamenting how Jack and Lazaro have a keen approach to keeping things fresh, and here we are with yet another covetable PS11 (and it’s a mini – my favorite!!).

Think about it: anyone who thought the PS11 was a one-season wonder was dead-wrong. It has now become more popular than the original […]
It looks like the PS bag has graduated – or at least the girl who carries it has. The Courier reads rather plain for Proenza Schouler, but don’t think they’ve ditched their aesthetic entirely. It still sports some of their trademark details, like that signature hardware closure. Think of the Courier as an inside-out version […]
Snobs who leave no bag unturned surely demand a wallet that matches the rest of their wardrobe, right? In the midst of bag frenzies, the wallet is an oft-neglected accessory that doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Count on the boys of Proenza Schouler to change that. When your wallet is extra-spacious and comes with […]
The hardware on this bag reminds of the supremely pricy new Hublot LaFerrari watch, which I don’t even understand because it’s not even nice – it just looks like part of a car engine. But on a Proenza Schouler bag? That’s something entirely different. Here, you get the juxtaposition of an unglamorously functional-looking engine-part closure […]
