The Proenza Schouler PS1 satchels seem to be slung over every young fashionistas shoulder at the moment. With double straps this beautiful bag seems prepared to take even the heavy workload of a stylish commuter.
Prepare to ditch your old scratched PS1 to upgrade to the new addition to the collection: the PS11.

Replacing the PS1's double strap opening is a rather retro looking buckle clasp, making this desirable bag tastefully old-school. These bags remind me off S/S coveted Celine Classic Box Bags except Proenza Schouler style; So many small details like the two bottom buckles so that you can adjust the straps depending on how much your carrying, back zips and a magnetic clasp at the flap. This bags way edgier than it's sister, not to forget less manly. For my personal taste the buckles galore is just too much; my style is more modern, minimalistic and simplistic. On the other hand, Celine's use of popping colours are perfect for me; a simple charcoal blazer, a black shift and boots teamed with the Classic Box Bag in Orange will suit my laid back style but also meets the needs of those who like more busy, detailed garments. So for me the Celine satchel wins the battle of the It Bags, but for others this might not be the case...
