Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag | Highly Anticipated Unisex Python Messenger from the Dynamic Design Duo

1 min read

Urbanistas and others who follow fashion closely have been waiting ages for design duo Proenza Schouler to release their much anticipated PS1 line of bags. And, unlike so many oft-anticipated events, the arrival of these bags did not disappoint. The quirky quality the line is known for definitely translates well into the exotic appeal of the PS1 Messenger Bag.

The foldover python leather flap with double strap closure in its generous 15″ x 7″ x 9″ size makes for a practical and luxurious take everywhere bag. To me, it seems like a schoolbag of Gossip Girl style extravagance. I imagine Serena toting her MacBook Pro, iPod, and sleek sunglasses to and fro The Upper East Side in this soft-skinned tote.  The only catch here is the clasps. They seem a lot to fiddle with to get in and out of the interior.

And if you aren’t a Manhattan socialite or happen to be someone for whom money is an object, acquiring this hot little number may be a little hard to handle. The retail price of over $4,000 makes this one elite carryall. So, while it was already on Mary-Kate’s arm by fashion week, some of us may have to wait a little longer to get our own piece of Proenza Schouler’s PS1 line. And, though the PS1 messenger line is touted as completely unisex, I wonder how many men will want to make this sleek snakeskin bag their own. Perhaps the smooth-skinned leather version is a better choice for him? At under $2,000, it’s probably a more practical option for both of you!

So all-in-all, while the style and statement making potential of the PS1 Python Messenger bag is inherently covetable, it’s just not a reasonable everyday bag for every single one of us.
