Rule Breaker

by The Zoe Report

The Ask Rachel questions keep rolling in—I’m loving it—thanks everyone! I’m noticing a growing number of questions regarding the age old myth that white after Labor Day is a no no. I can think of no better way to declare my stance on the matter than via Proenza Schouler’s PS1 Python Bag…in white. Yes, you heard me correctly…

I believe that rules are meant to be broken, especially when it comes to fashion. Out with the old and snoozy, in with a new chic arm companion in bright white python! Not to say there is anything wrong with your classic black purse or colorful tote, but why not tweak it a little by doing the unexpected for fall? Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the dynamic duo behind Proenza Schouler (who are showing their S/S 2010 collection tomorrow at New York Fashion Week), broke the mold when they crafted this simple, yet statement bag. Complete with two buckle closure bands and removable leather strap, this doctoresque messenger is big enough to fit all of your own life-saving necessities: lipstick, handheld, compact and your favorite fashion bible. So pack it up and throw it on with everything, treat it as a neutral…rebel rebel. xoRZ
