Consider this your next high-fashion DIY project—Proenza Schouler has launched removable pins that can give its new line-up of perforated leather bags a hit of personality. Much like Fendi’s fluffy bag charms and Anya Hindmarch’s leather stickers, these PS metal-and-enamel pins (available in both letters and numbers for $75 each) are completely covet-worthy.
“We like seeing different ways of wearing our bags, and we’ve seen so many people recently customizing them with charms and patches. We wanted something that you could change up, so the pins are removable,” say Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. “We were looking at some art by John Chamberlain, so we wanted to work with metal and enamel. And we wanted them to be a little more graphic, more angular.”

The perforated bags themselves are pin-worthy in more ways than one. The styles (priced between $375 and $1,885), ranging from the classic PS1 to “small lunch bag” clutches to bucket bags, come in three colorways: black, white, and yellow. “They have a new attitude, which is great,” the designers say. “Especially the PS1. It has a more rigid structure than the original version, which is softer. There is no lining on the inside, so the leather is cut raw.”
And the best part: The pins and the pin-happy bags are available at proenzaschouler.com starting today.
