Just last April, she was spotted toting it several times, and below is a picture from just one of these occasions. Nicky also sported studded ‘Candy’ flats from Christian Louboutin and geometric ‘Anouk’ sunglasses from Tom Ford.

Nicky Hilton and David Katzenberg dated for several years, beginning their relationship around 2006. They were together until 2011 when reports emerged that they had ended their relationship.

Unsurprisingly, the Proenza Schouler PS1 has become the ‘IT’ bag. Initially overlooked as fashion enthusiasts favored Balenciaga, its journey to prominence began with Mary-Kate Olsen, who received it as a gift from designers Jack and Lazaro. Over time, the PS1 gained recognition and carved out its own niche among sought-after ‘IT’ bags.

The PS1 is a messenger bag with a flap closure and pull-tab straps. It comes in different sizes, even a clutch version.

Price range? Well, it depends. The large one costs $1,995, while the medium one is $1,595—those made of exotic leather cost more, running as high as $14,000.

Now, if you like how the bag looks but you feel guilty spending so much on a piece when there are people in this world who earn less than $1 a day (ok, I am deliberately trying to make you feel guilty), then go for these pocket-friendly pieces instead:
