Proenza Schouler PS1 Keepall

Looking through Net-A-Porter’s new arrivals today, I spotted this: the Proenza Schouler PS1 Keepall, Lazaro and Jack’s latest reincarnation of the popular PS1. Primarily made up of leather and woven straw, the GBP840 (around SGD1680 or so) tote is massive, measuring 43 cm across by 36 cm.

Which is all well and good really, considering the fact that it is a Proenza Schouler, it is affordable, it is huge and most importantly, the colours and materials are just perfect for Spring. My only real issue? From the looks of it, the handles do look a tad long, which sort of throws off the proportion. It might not look that way here, but take a look at the one shown at Net-A-Porter and you’ll know what I mean.

Nevertheless, it is still a handsome piece, and the length is maybe something I can get used to over time, but I definitely have to check out the bag in person first. What do you think? Or did I just wake up on the wrong side of the bed today?

    I just looked on the PS website and it seems the straw version and the all leather version are a bit different. The straw Keep All’s dimensions are 17×14, while the all leather are 16.5×10. Have you heard if this is right?

      Honestly with a such a minimal difference, it could attributed to the way it was measured, whether it was laid flat down or stuffed full before being measured. And there could have been some conversion errors (inches to centimeters) along the way as well.

    From the looks of it, it should not hang down too low. In fact I think it’s a friendly position from the shoulder because you need to unflap the flap towards yourself when you try to retrieve things. It leaves some leeway to dig inside and your face would not be blocked by the flap.

    saw this in NY! but was too preoccupied with the PS1 to take a closer look.

    I like the original PS1 messenger. The keepall, wallet and clutch just aren’t doing it for me. It seems like they are just trying to leverage off the success of PS1 in whatever way they can. I think they need more stuff that’s different — like PS11.

    I thinks there’s another version in suede but this is definitely prettier.

    I don’t think this bag should be slung over the shoulder. It needs to be carried and shown off, not hidden under your arm.

    but yes the handles do seem a little too long for that. Maybe it was a manufacturing error?

  • CAROLINE says:

    When I first saw it, I thought, oh, you’re supposed to sling it over your shoulder, aren’t you? Maybe that’s what they were going for.

    • Bagaholicboy says:

      Yes, carried over the shoulder is right, but not when it hangs down (and forgive me for saying this) way below the chest.

      It would be awkward to retrieve things from the bag IMHO.
