If there’s one thing that has fuelled my obsession for purses, as well as fashion in general, considering that the beginning of time (i.e., for the last 3 years), it is the city of new York. That, as well as my community cafe, where people seem to always have some crazy costly outfit/purse combination going on.
But back to the topic of new York: a lot of people normally tend to marvel at Paris for being “the fashion capital” of the world, however it’s nyc that I regard as the house of high-fashion, as well as it’s the new York aspect, as well as not the Parisian scenes, of The Devil uses Prada that struck me the most. Promenading across a hectic street in all-white with a silver handbag? liked it! Knee-high boots, a navy cape, as well as a distressed tan carryall? Quintessentially cool!
But, as much as I’d like to believe otherwise, life in the huge Apple most likely isn’t all walks in the (Central) park. Still, the struggles of living in NYC, mainly evident in prominent films like The Devil uses Prada, mistress America as well as Frances Ha, is something that I likewise look upon with significant awe. like Lily Rabe’s character, Sylvia states in The Undoing,
“You online in new York. It’s a criminal offense not to be desperately busy.”
That’s what the quintessential new Yorker is to me; a person always on the move, regularly overworked, however effortlessly elegant nevertheless (“constantly overworked,” check, “effortlessly stylish,” still to go). as well as after writing, reading, as well as ogling handbags all day, there’s one specific bag that I’ve come to believe is the extremely embodiment of the new Yorker. It is the Proenza Schouler PS1.
Why yes, that is my cloak rack in the middle of new York City
Proenezz Schouler PS1
Founded by Jack McCollough as well as Lazaro Hernandez in 2002, the history of the fashion home is by now typical fashion-speak, with an excellent track record of studying at Parsons as well as their collaborative senior thesis being bought completely by Barneys new York! named after their mothers’ maiden names as well as styles that defined the “downtown cool-girl” aesthetic, Proenza Schouler was young, carefree, liberating, as well as a lot of importantly, solely NYC-based.
The PS1, however, was an extraordinarily different phenomenon, to state the extremely least. created to be the anti-It-bag in the height of the It-bag era, as well as one the duo purportedly desires to never screen on the runway, the schoolboy-like satchel is indicated to be just that, a low-key bag lacking logos. particularly when garishly maximalist bags had ended up being the norm, of course, this anti-It bag was swiftly snapped up by the fashion set. everybody who was somebody, from Jessica Alba to Reese Witherspoon to Khloe Kardashian, had to have one, as well as have one they did. at first created as a women’s piece, it was no less prominent among the male crowd either, with David Thielebule, Harpers Bazaar’s accessories Editor, as well as Kyle Anderson, Marie Claire’s accessories Director, all having been identified toting the luscious carryall.
But while its period of height popularity was probably the late 2000s as well as early 2010s, today it has gained cult status, with tPFers on a regular basis going over it as well as its a lot of ardent devotees inspecting the resale market for collectible, highly-coveted editions. Plus, even though it’s no longer the most popular bag of the moment, PS continues its production, as well as you can still get one for yourself. किन? since its style hasn’t ended up being dated at all, it stays traditional in an understated, cool, however nevertheless trendy manner, much like the quintessential new Yorker.
And assumption what? I’ve got my hands on one! Yes, I can’t believe it myself either!
As soon as I’d discovered about the existence of the PS1, I understood that it’d permanently be on my wishlist, joining the ranks of the Sac de Jour as well as Balenciaga work as one more “stuff I’d get myself when I’m super-rich.” however having just recently had the chance to purchase one pre-owned, I realized exactly how low its resale values might get (buying it as an investment was never a thing for me, I understood I was just going to keep it forever). But, the “right” bag never seemed to get listed. It was nearly always the medium, which is, of course, method as well little for my oversized-loving soul. There was even a stunning white fringe medium going for under $100 that I had to restrain myself from getting since it was white on top of being the wrong size!
But then, having pined for it for over 3 months, one fine day, it was there! A saddle in large, going for virtually free. I’d checked out Megs’ story of scoring a Crocodile PS1 for just over $4,000 on the Outnet, as well as I’d naturally presumed that kind of miracles never occurred within my meager budget. however thiS यस्तो लाग्यो कि पर्स-आश्चर्यकर्मका ठ्याक्कै एउटै ईश्वरले भरिएको केहि पनि, म यो प्रमाणित गर्न अघि नै यो प्रशोधन गर्न सक्दो भनी यो पर्याप्त प्रक्रिया गर्न अघि नै मैले यसलाई प्रशोधन गर्न सक्थें (यसलाई प्रयास नगर्नुहोस्)।
यसलाई किनेपछि (यो वास्तविक थियो! आनन्दको आँसु *), पर्खाइ बंगलादेश पुग्नको लागि आयो। EBay मा मेरो ड्राइभबाट मायालु बलिन्क्रियायालाई मनमा राख्नुहोस्? खैर, यो कहिल्यै बनाइएको; ट्रान्जिटमा यो सम्भवतः चोरी वा गलत रंगिएको थियो (यद्यपि मेरो सामान्यतया ईश्वरीय एजेन्ट पर्याप्त पर्याप्त अनुकम्भव पर्याप्त छैन)। तसर्थ, PS1 को चिन्ताको विषयलाई सन्तुष्ट भएको सटीक उही घटनाले मलाई हप्ताको अन्तमा दुःस्वप्नहरू प्रदान गर्यो! दुई महिना पछि पछि, यो अन्तमा आइपुगेको छ!

र म यसको बारेमा के विश्वास गर्छु? ईमानदारीसाथ, यो मेरो पाखुरामा न्यूयोर्कको बिट टुक्रा जस्तो छ (हो, म यसलाई जान दिन्छु)। जब म कुनै अर्थमा मनको निर्दिष्ट संस्करणको निर्धारण गर्दछु एक VERITATHER RPSPSPOWOWOWE मा भत्काउँदा पनि, साथै megs पनि आफैंले धेरै अवसरमा गरेको छ, यो मेरो अत्यन्त धेरै उच्च-एन्ड पर्स कुनै पनि हुन सकेन भनेर एक धेरै धेरै बढी सन्तोषजनक। जे होस् ठूलोमा, यो अझै पनि केहि सानो छ म सामान्य भन्दा सानो छु (यो आकारमा मेरो पूर्ण पुरानो 1 16 “ल्यापटप), ओह, यो यति विशाल छ! म मेरो एसडीजे दिनहरू र यस PSE को साथसाथै यो PSHENT नहुनुको लागि टानको एक उत्साही भएको छु, ट्यानको धेरै थप कारमेल शेड!
जूनिजा Schouler PS1, मेरो विचारमा न्यू योर्कको आत्माको अपपकता प्रतिनिधि, साथै उच्च गुणवत्ताको लागि (ओह-सोम-लक्ज लम्बिकिन मर्दछ), साथै NYC यसको अत्यधिक उत्पत्ति भएको छ! थप रूपमा, सत्यताका लागि यसको सामूहिक-लालच-नेसको अवधि वास्तवमै धेरै हुन्छ। यो इस्केजिटोको वातावरणमा कुनै पनि प्रकारको इन्डोनेटोको पर्याप्त छ, जहाँ कलेजका लागि मेरो सुरुचिपूर्ण बिर्चशाला हो (जब भौतिक वर्ग अन्ततः पुनःसुच हुन्छ?)। अझै, जसले बुझ्छ, ठीक छ, थाहा छ। यो अमेरिकी फेसन-प्रेमीहरू बीच थोरै चालजस्तै हो, साथै म, एकको लागि पत्ता लगाउन प्रतीक्षा गर्न सक्दिन यो निर्धारण गर्न भीडलाई पर्याप्त स्मार्ट पर्याप्त छ!
तसर्थ, म असंख्य मील टाढा हुन सक्छु साथै ढलान पसिना पसीफ्समा मैले पाएको पनि, यद्यपि अहिले PS1 मेरो पोशाकमा एनईसी क्वालीले PS1 ले PS1 प्राप्त गर्न पाएको छ!
मेरो बारेमा पर्याप्त, के तपाईं आफ्नो अत्यन्त धेरै पहिलो डिजाइनर झोला मनमा राख्नुहुन्छ? के तपाईंले यो महिनाको लागि चाहानुहुन्छ (हुनसक्छ वर्षहरू) साथै अन्ततः यसलाई खरीद गर्न बचत गरिएको छ? वा यो एक आवेग किन्नुहोस् कि तपाईं मन पराउनुहोस् कि तपाईं सुन्नुहुन्छ? म तपाईंको कथाहरू सुन्न को लागी प्रतीक्षा गर्न सक्दिन साथै मेरो आफ्नै धेरै धेरै सपना
