I was really excited when Proenza Schouler announced the debut of its PS1 accessories line a few years ago. And with very few exceptions, I have continued to be excited by its upscale, minimal designs. But this new version of the Keep It All is, well, honestly, kind of ugly.
The shape of the Keep It All is as classic and beautiful as always. It looks something like a Birkin, but with a few more bells and whistles. So it isn't the design per se that's destroying the look of the bag. It's the material. The gray canvas alone would be fine, as would the python embossed leather. But together they're a bad choice. An eye-catching, overwhelmingly distracting bad choice.
The textural combination leaves a lot to be desired as well. Unlike the color combination, there's simply not enough contrast between the nubbly grain of the canvas and the somewhat smoother embossing on the leather. The lack of differentiation takes away from both.
Like I said, though, the design of the bag is solid and practical. So, if you're looking for something different and have $1,250 handy to spend on a somewhat unwieldy conversation piece, you're in luck. Otherwise, I'd just opt out.
