Bag Crush: Proenza Schouler PS1

Mary-Kate and Ashley are among the numerous fans of this simple and understated messenger. I have seen this bag all over the fashion-blogo-sphere but I hadn't had the opportunity to see it up close and personal because it was unavailable in UK until quite recently. The initial attraction to the PS1 was the layering of the flaps, a very simple yet effective design which makes this bag stand out without being pretentious which tends to be the case. In my opinion, people who carry bags with the label plastered all over the bag don't really appreciate their bag and the designers, they carry it as a sign of status which I feel exploits a brand and cheapens it. This bag is a prime example of great design which exudes style of the highest form balanced by the uber-cool understated luxury it is. 

This bag will stand the test of time just like the Chanel 2.55 which will always remain on my "Favourites" List.
