The sexy bag with the heart of an adventurer
Clean-lined, polished and sexy – these are the values we’ve come to associate with Proenza Schouler, and the beloved New York brand delivers in bucket-loads with its Autumn/Winter shoulder bag collection.
The catalyst for the latest line-up was the great American textile artist Sheila Hicks. The overall look blends ‘handicraft’ with ‘what it means to be a voyager travelling across borders’. There’s a powerful sense that each item has been crafted with patience and devotion – a million miles from the mass-produced, factory-churned offerings from many other designers. In keeping with the adventurer theme, textured leather features large in the collection as do satchel-style straps, metal hardware and stud embellishments. Needless to say, there’s nothing girlie about the colours in this collection - bags come in a no-nonsense palette of navy, black, tan and smoky grey.
