Ten Loves: Proenza Schouler’s Hava Bag

Proenza Bag
Dominic thinks that this bag looks like a happy face, a fact he considers this for a moment – “you know, it looks like he could be in Beauty in the Beast, singing along to be our guest,” he says. This bag, though, Proenza Schouler’s Hava, will not – as far as we know – transform, a la Mrs Potts, into a real-life person. Nor can it sing, dance or move. But it will, much like anything those lovely boys Jack and Lazaro turn their hands to, make you happy. Overwhelmingly happy. Just look into it’s smiling face! So happy, in fact, that you will cling to its smooth, smooth leather and ring handles for dear life, brandishing it into strangers faces, muttering loudly about just how fucking happy you are. At which point concerned relatives will hold a intervention, rip it from your arms and check you into the nearest facility. The bag did it, you will say. That’s the power of Proenza Schouler. Proceed with caution.

The Proenza Schouler Hava is available now on Net-a-Porter here
