The Material Boy #381


Below: The large size Proenza Schouler PS1 bag which is perfect for the boys...


Below: www.thecorner.com stocks this bag in large size and in 2 different leather colours...


Below: But the price is more turn-off than turn on:-( At Eur 2511.00... it's just way too ridiculously overpriced!



Below: The gorgeous blue version is my all time favourite...

Proenza Schouler PS1 Large Shoulder Bags


Are you a guy? Are you in love with the highly coveted Proenza Schouler PS1 bags that the women have been flaunting and yet you had a hard time tracking down a large size to better fit the male gender? What's more, one that's in a gorgeous blue leather like the one Harper Bazaar accessories editor, David Thielebule, has been seen toting around?

Fret not, the search has ended... www.thecorner.com stocks this elusive large size PS1 bag (measures 40cm width x 30cm height x 15cm depth). Net-a-porter, Luisaviaroma has medium sizes or suede material PS1 which, in my opinion pales in comparison to the leather versions. However, do note that you have to be exceptionally desperate, 'hopelessly cannot survive without the bag' situation in order to commit to the purchase at www.thecorner.com. Reason being, they charge a highly overpriced amount of EUR 2511.00 which is almost SGD $4900. I know PS1 bags are expensive...but for nearly SGD 5k... are you kidding me?!?!?

So PS1 'desperados'... will you be willing to get rip off to own your dream PS1. I do like the beige version, just not enough to fork out the ridiculous mark-up at www.thecorner.com.

Indeed! It is certainly pricey but its lovely. My favourite colours of the PS1 are in midnight, moss, turquoise or smoke.

TheCorner overpriced everything (check out their Phillip lim, it's ridiculous compared to the prices in US) ... I've been back and forth with this bag for ever, Why can't they just put out a men's version... and it has to be brown suede :)
