I’ve long had my eye on Proenza Schouler’s covet-worthy PS1 bag. Since its debut four years ago for Fall 2008, it’s been steadily rising to icon status. Sure it was the “it”-bag during its first year of fashion reign, but the bag that works year after year has the makings of a true classic. With multiple sizes, seemingly endless colors available, street-style and celeb-style inspiration galore, I was dying to get my hands on one of these babies. When a promising package arrived today at the front door (no less than a week before my birthday), my heart skipped a beat and my inner fashionista rejoiced.
Could it be? Could it be?
Just to back up a bit, this bag is everywhere. If you are an avid fashion blog reader or celebrity weekly reader, you had to have (at least once) come across a photo with a PS1 slung over someone’s shoulder, resting snugly on an outstretched wrist or tucked nicely under an arm. Even after several seasons and a follow-up PS11
, this style was still high on many style-seekers’ lists — including mine. From a small pochette style to a medium bag to a tote to an extra large carryall, the PS1 fits any carrier’s need.
Here are just a few of the lovely ladies who have been spotted in the company of the PS1:
Lauren Conrad, Leighton Meester, Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen, Kirsten Dunst,
Minka Kelly, Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, Khloe Kardashian
I love these street-style shots with bright, vivid PS1s ranging from fuchsia to watermelon to yellow.
Finally, here it is! My very own PS1!
My wonderfully thoughtful hubby really outdid himself. He had flagged this little detail of my obsession months ago, waiting for the right occasion. What a guy! To maintain the timeless appeal and to fit the beachy casual vibe of where we live, he thought the classic white would be perfect and I have to say, I agree! Feel free to continue drooling, meanwhile, I will continue to walk on air!
