I absolutely love the look of the Proenza Schouler PS1 Satchel! The classic messenger bag shape and luxurious leather make it an iconic piece that just about any bagista would treasure for years. There are also other PS1 styles floating around out there such as a tote and a crossbody pouch. They all have the same “look” as the PS1 Satchel. It is this look that I have come to associate with this designer’s handbags. So when I stumbled upon the Proenza Schouler PS11 you see here, I did not immediately recognize it as being from this designer.
I guess my disappointment with this tote is that it just doesn’t look like Proenza Schouler. In fact, when I first saw it I was thinking 3.1 Phillip Lim. It’s not that I don’t like this tote though. I actually do like it. I like the simple shape, clean lines, and richly pebbled leather. I also like the zippered gussets at the sides, simply unzip and you instantly expand the depth of this tote. It’s sophisticated-looking enough and would probably make a nice work bag. Plus the gorgeous saddle color would go nicely with just about any office-ready attire, allowing this investment to stick around for awhile.
