Proenza Schouler Paper Effect Tote

Proenza Schouler Paper Effect ToteThese days fashion is moving away from obvious logo prints and plates, and embracing more minimalist luxury designs. So I suppose that a designer tote which looks like a brown paper lunch bag is the next logical step.

I might be able to understand it on an intellectual level, but that doesn’t mean that I warm to this tote. If I’m going to pay the price of luxury leather, in this case a significant $615, I want it to look like real leather. I don’t want it to appear like a cheap paper bag.

The rich black leather trim helps to dress up that pale skin, but there’s no getting around that papery looking material. In fact, that seems to be the point. Those looking for the next big thing might deem it clever, but it makes me long for the good old days.

Sadly Proenza Schouler doesn’t offer us much more than a paper bag when it comes to the design either. There a lone open pocket inside, a paltry attempt to keep this rather sizable tote organized. There isn’t even any way to keep it closed; at least we could crumple the top of a real paper bag to keep our items safe!

To me this seems like Proenza Schouler has tried to be too smart for its own good, and forgotten all about what women really want. Are you in on the joke?
