Proenza Schouler PS1 Orchid Satchel Bag

I have been thinking about the Proenza Schouler PS1 medium satchel bag for about 2 years now. The first year I thought that I would get tired of it in black and would never wear it after a month. The second year I thought this bag is never going to last and I should not buy it now even though there are more colors, but now in its third year with more vibrant and creative colors added to the collection, I realize finally the bag has become a classic. This bag will sit among the Balenciaga City bags, Hermes birkin bags, Louis Vuitton duffle bags, and the Chanel classic flap bags as a go to bag in a tastemaker’s closet for years to come. What is great about this bag? Well, at first I really could not figure out why this bag would be on anyone’s “it” list but then I realized the reason is in its leather quality and construction.

This Proenza Schouler PS1 satchel design is one of a kind. It reaches back to the school boy bags of another era and gives it a modern day twist with its brass closures and leather. The design seems simple enough, but it has an edge to it. Add all the great colors and you must have more than one. The first one you buy must be in the saddle brown or black color to wear with everything in your closet for those days where you just cannot think about what color bag to carry. The second PS1 you should own should be all about color. You should buy this bag to go with you when you go to the Hamptons for the summer and wear colorful ballet flats and white crop pants this summer. You should get a great color for Spring in Paris or just a weekend jaunt to Williamsburg. This is a bag that you can use without a care. Don’t worry about scratching it or getting it a little wet in the rain, this bag gets a nice lived in leather patina the more you wear it and love it. That is why this bag became an icon amongst its peers. My favorite this season is the orchid color.

Get the Proenza Schouler medium satchel PS1 bag in orchid for $1595.
