Proenza Schouler PS11

I was just browsing around and I found the Proenza Schouler PS11 leather satchel. Well many of you would have heard of the PS1 but MAYBE not the PS11. The PS11 was unveiled during the Proenza Schouler Fall/Winter 2010/2011 show and wa la the PS1 has a new sister. The PS11 is slightly smaller in size and comes with a removable shoulder strap. The bag can be worked as a satchel, cross-body or clutch. I prefer the cross-body option a la Mary-Kate Olsen. She is one woman who loves her Proenza Schouler bags.

The PS11 in saddle.

The PS1 clutch in croc skin which is a special order if I’m not wrong.

And my personal favourite, the PS1 in jet black python skin!

I like how the chunky shiny buckles stand out. They give the bag an extra ooommph while yet being silently uderstated don’t you think? But if you are going for an even more understated bag then I think the Celine Classic Box Bag or the Hermes Constance Bag is more for you. And hold that thought! Do you think that the classic box bag looks like the SIA girl bag???! We’ve got Pierre Balmain to design the uniform but little did I know that we have got ‘something’ to do with Celine. Does anyone know who designed that iconic (i say iconic ’cause I think it is, in the local context) bag?

Available in one size and in saddle or black and and AND in python skin.

I am totally in love with python skin by the way. The slight roughness and the visual feast of the texture and slightly soft-looking but yet sturdy feel of the leather is just amazing. Saddle and python skin option available at Luisaviaroma while the black option is available at Net-a-Porter.

I say move over Mulberry!
