Copycat cattyness: Zara's Interpretation of Proenza Schouler's PS1.
A Domenican Republic fashion lover sent this photo to Fashionista and he calls it “a veeeery poor and cheap immitation of Proenza Schouler’s PS1.” Indeed, the “leather” looks plastic-y and the black part appears to be canvas.
Many fashion lovers love the PS1, because it’s an “It bag,”, but it’s so simple and understated that it lacks the annoying fad aspect of most It bags that came before it. Still, lots of celebrities carry it around, so it's not surprising to see someone like Zara would decide to create something similar. Not a very impressive knock-off of the Olsen favorite. However, at least the buckles and colorways are slightly different from the original, unlike Navoh’s knock-off, which was more of a straight-up copy and just as cheap-looking.
