The cult favorite PS1 bag has been on numerous must-have lists since the awesome duo behind Proenza Schouler, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, launched the now-iconic PS1 messenger bag back in 2008.
A young five-year-old brand at the time, they garnered high-fashion approval of style icons such as Chloe Sevigny, Kate Bosworth and the Olsen twins, who have all been seen with the luxurious bag. Popular for its understated elegance, it has been reinvented in a sundry of ways without losing the exclusivity that comes with owning one.
Having endured the rough and testy waters of the industry, which includes a slew of knock-offs, the PS1 is not about to relinquish its status. In fact, Proenza Schouler is gearing up for Valentine’s Day with a three-piece collection celebrating the season of romance in hues of ravishing red.
Proenza Schouler brings forth a PS1 large chain wallet in leather or Iguana. The leather version goes for $785, while the Iguana retails for $1,925.
These impressive crimson pieces come with one compartment, a front slit pocket, a zip pocket, credit card slots and two pouch pockets. Functionality is also factored in by placing a mirror on the inside flap for quick touch-ups for women on the go. The chain strap can be removed for greater convenience and portability.
From a $165 price tag, the duo moves to the higher end of the pricing spectrum with the extravagant PS11 Classic Iguana bag that goes for $6,825. Even with minimal embellishments, the sole bag among a sea of wallets is on a league of its own. The stud detail, buckles and D-ring all make for the perfect red handbag.

If we could only buy love then any piece from this collection would probably be “it”. Then again, who says you can’t wheedle your way to getting a Proenza Schouler tote from your valentine?
