PROENZA SCHOULER FW 2012 FAVES
Fall-Winter is almost here and with the change of seasons, a slew of new designer pieces are now ripe for the taking. I've always been enamored by the ability of Proenza Schouler to churn out pieces that have an understated sense of elegance and classicism and this has been part of the brand's appeal. There came a point though when what they've produced became too staple and boring - speaking specifically of their leather goods - but I think they've turned the tides of late and this season is no different as they've taken their leather goods collection to a whole new level!
The PS1 Pouch and Keepall looks divinely rejuvenated as they channel the vibe and feel of Chanel in this quilted black number accentuated with gold detailing. I personally think it looks luxurious and rich and just screams decadent elegance. I love the touch of the gold chain on the pouch as well, which is definitely a new and interesting twist. Apart from that I am seriously lusting after the PS11 Classic, which is available in this deep forest green color. Personally I would have preferred it if the hardware was in gold as opposed to silver, but hey who's complaining? It looks just as elegantly rich and classy regardless. Retailing for around USD 1950,[or about SGD 2300, if I'm not mistaken, at OnPedder] I honestly think it's a steal for something that can last you lifetimes.
Apart from the bags, their shoes are also of note - specifically the boots and pumps you see on display. I actually think these pieces are classic looking enough to last you a couple of seasons or more - definitely worth the investment if you ask me. Still waiting for details on pricing for some of these pieces so as soon as I hear any, will update you all. For now, we'll all have to wait at the starting line to race to the finish - the finish being purchasing one of these gorgeous pieces!
