Drool Worthy: Fendi and Proenza Schouler

The Proenza Schouler PS1 has become both a statement bag and a closet staple. The S/S 2011 collection breathes new life into this must-have with new textures and bright colors. I am partial to the classic black medium lux lamb version. It feels sort of "messenger bag all grown up" and I love that all the hardware is black too, instead of gold, silver or bronze. Proenza Schouler PS1 Medium Lux Lamb Bag $1590 at LuisAviaRoma.com

The Fendi S/S 2011 collection is beautiful, but my breath caught in my throat when I spotted the addition of this leather-and-crocodile bag. The supple dual-color leather and the stripe of yellow crocodile down the center are a wonderfully exotic blend. If you prefer the subtleties, you too will appreciate the small two-toned Fendi logo that appears via buckle along the strap of the bag--as opposed to the monogrammed style of some of the classic Fendi pieces. $2900 at Fendi (photo via Purseblog)
