Accessories Highlight: Proenza Schouler
We love nothing more than a bold bag to perk up our drab winter wardrobe, and nothing packs a punch like Bright Red, Citron or neon colorblocks dangling from our shoulders (particularly on soggy, groggy days). Well watch out Fashion City: the PS1 from Proenza Schouler has arrived online and we couldn’t be more jazzed. When they first landed on our Main Floor last winter, we wanted nothing more than to be able to share the PS-love with BG.com… and now the time has come.
With a distinctly downtown edge, the PS1 is where rugged sophistication and utility converge. Available in a variety of sizes ranging from the roomy PS1 Large Satchel to the more structured Keep-All Bag or even the ever-so-chic iPad Case (which, we’ve discovered, also can double-duty as a very sleek clutch) featuring their signature front flap and front detail, the PS1 bags are the perfect day-to-day, cat-about-the-City bag. You needn’t a reminder of how convenient a messenger strap is, nor do you need to be told how grand it is to sling a bag over your shoulder and forget that it’s there… instead, let’s turn our attention to the sometimes forgotten details, like that most bags are colored with organic vegetable dye, giving them a unique, worn-over-time quality. Speaking of color, the colors this Spring are attuned to what we’re seeing crop up in ready-to-wear: electric. Think citron and neon red in glossy python, think linen and printed python echoing Jack & Lazaro’s thumping Spring ready-to-wear collection (another item to note: select styles of Proenza Schouler shoes also are available online and in our shoe salon). And, if runway is on your mind, stay tuned for what’s soon arriving on our Main Floor (we can’t reveal too much but we can confirm that duffles, camera bags and stingray clutches will find themselves in the mix).

About Proenza Schouler:
Lazaro Hernandez, who worked at Michael Kors, and Jack McCullough, who worked at Marc Jacobs, met at Parsons School of Design. They collaborated on a senior project that became enormously successful, and in 2002 they launched Proenza Schouler (a combination of their mothers’ maiden names). The duo was immediately lauded by fashion’s highest critics for their design prowess, fresh approach to modern luxury, and technical sophistication.
