Proenza Schouler's newest PS13 handbag has evoked quite a bit of mystery. Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have been patiently waiting to reveal their latest bit of handbag genius from their resort '13 collection, all the while taking extra security measures to avoid design infringement from expected creativity snatchers. Fortunately, the PS13 was worth the hype!
The biggest It bag of the last few years has officially grown-up. This is more of a power bag than a messenger — structural, mature, and sharp at every angle. The purse made its debut on the back page of the November issue of Vogue, giving readers some fair warning about its ensuing trend domination, and that's bound to be just the very beginning.
There's nothing like watching an accessory get carried from its infantile design stages into the arms of every lady come Fashion Week. Well, every lady willing to drop some dough, that is. Retailing at a starting price of $2,250, this one's a mighty big investment — but the more we gaze at its clean lines and perfect proportions, the more we suspect it's worth it!
You know that feeling when you buy a new iPhone just weeks before they announce the latest model? Well, yeah. We'll always have love for the PS1, but this is a new kind of beauty, a kind we really can't resist.
