Proenza Schouler has come out with a new green version of their very popular PS1 satchel bag and I don't know I just don't get the hype about this bag. The color is cool but a satchel for $1,595? I have a friend that works in the handbag department at Barneys and she was telling these bags sell like hot cakes! I know the story of the 2 guys is pretty cool; they were students at Parsons and their final senior thesis turned out to be their first collection and was eventually bought by Barney's New York and their designs are now sold in over 100 exclusive retailers like Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Harvey Nichols. I mean that's a designer's dream and doesn't happen to very many people. Oh and in case you were wonder where they got the name from "Proenza Schouler" is their mothers' maiden names.
So what do you think? Is it worth the hype and money?
