Here's some good news: Proenza Schouler masterminds Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez have a new bag in the works. And the requisite bad news: It'll be kept under lock and key until its November debut. Not just an effort to up the anticipation giddiness among die-hard fans (the bags sort of do that on their own), all the secrecy is "really the only defense" against counterfeiters, according to Proenza CEO Shirley Cook. Fair enough, but please be quick about it. We. Just. Can't. Wait. [Lucky]
