In The Bag With Proenza Schouler

-------

“A million different colors, suede, leather, rubberized python, crocodile special-order,” rattled off Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough Thursday night at Il Buco, where he and partner Lazaro Hernandez hosted a dinner to celebrate their new handbag line. It was inevitable really, McCollough noted. “Whenever we’re doing our drawings for collections, the girls always have bags on their hands, shoes on their feet, sunglasses on their faces,” he explained. “It kind of completes the look.” Nearby, Simon Doonan (Barneys played co-host) indulged in some horn-tooting before dinner was served. “It’s utterly luscious and utterly exquisite,” he cooed, stroking a white python clutch from the PS1 line. “That whole thing of those girls on Gossip Girl carrying gigunda purses, that’s very déjà,” Doonan sniffed, barely noticing Proenza-ites Chloë Sevigny and Mary-Kate Olsen filtering past. “All that hellish rummaging, and there are, like, terrorists living in them.”
