This bag has been making appearances on this blog since January and it’s about time I’ve broken the silence. I’m head over heels in love with Proenza Schouler’s medium PS1 satchel, and I’m so glad to finally have it after lusting over it for many years on my wish list. This was a gift to myself, and I fear it has sparked a new luxury handbag addiction, however so far this bag is satisfaction enough.
Watch the video below to hear some more of my thoughts.
Unfortunately I experienced some hardware problems within the first few weeks of use, but it was clearly a hardware defect and not a quality issue. My bag has actually just returned from a brief trip to the Proenza Schouler workshop for hardware repairs, and to my surprise the entire repair process was stress-free and complimentary thanks to PS and the kind folks at Barneys. If you’re interested in this bag, I strongly urge you to buy it from a local trusted retailer, so you can drop in for advice on repairs if you need it.
All in all, I’m really happy with this handbag for everyday and how many organized compartments it has. As a full time professional and part time blogger, it fits my essentials, including my DSLR, makeup bag, and wallet. It’s a little bit of chic and 100% me! Are you a fan of the Proenza Schouler PS1 Satchel? I would love to know!

That purse seriously goes with everything, I think it’s so important to invest in quality pieces you know you’re going to keep for a long time. Good choice, the purse is beautiful! 🙂
Great bag! Loving the blue version!

I am always looking for new bags for work…and this really does fit a good amount of stuff I usually carry with me through the day…not that I need all of it 🙂 Have a great weekend!

The PS1 is a fantastic everyday bag with an easygoing look and an elegant attitude. It is quite expensive – but due to it´s unusual colors you can find good deals when it comes to season final as you can see on my website http://www.neue-taschen.de/proenza-schouler-ps1. I love your version and your honesty that you had some hardware problems, but that the local dealer fixed it quickly. It just shows that it is worth to buy an authentic designer handbag. I also think that it has per se more style to carry an original one. hello from berlin and thanks for your nice post! stephanie
