Proenza Schouler's figured out a way for you to pin your initials on your designer bag without leaving any trace of a mark. The brand rolled out its new PS Pins line yesterday, offering versions of classic PS bags in perforated leather.
Now, voila, shoppers can attach individual brass and enamel letter pins to personalize the bags any way they see fit. The colorful, modern pins are available in both letters and numbers, and they retail for $75 each.
If you're on a budget, this may be a case where brevity is best. Still, you get to buy something from Proenza Schouler for less than $100, and this pricing strategy puts the pins right along the lines of Anya Hindmarch's bag stickers.
The prices for the perforated leather bags range from $1,885 for the PS1 Medium satchel to $1,595 for the PS1 Tiny satchel. The medium bucket pouch is $1,525. The large Proenza Schouler lunch bag is $990 and the small lunch bag is $840. The medium zip bag is $375. Click through the gallery to see the bags, which are available in black, optic white, and a neon yellow called sulphur, and to get some inspiration for pin possibilities.
