A Proenza Schouler classic is reborn for a new season.

Proenza Schouler’s PS1+.


Each new season ushers in the latest “it” bag. But what happens to the bag of seasons past?

With some, the novelty wears, while others carve out coveted closet space as perennial purses. One such bag: Proenza Schouler’s PS1.

This season, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez injected an added dimension to the beloved bag, with the debut of the PS1+. The signature oblong square shape will still be carried, but there are subtle differences in hardware and stitching from its predecessor.

Less nuanced alterations will allow the wearers to customize their bags with detachable straps and charms in a collage of prints, textures and colors seen in the house’s runway collections. The endless combinations of options provide a way to express a unique sense of style without having to say a word.
