NYFW A/W 13-14: Proenza Schouler


An elegant progression on their Tumblr-inspired S/S 13 collection, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler tempered their new, refined aesthetic with instances of youthful rebellion and impressive fabric manipulation.

The layered polo neck was a consistent prim accompaniment to leather shift dresses, cocoon-shaped collarless coats and drop-waist kilts seen in boucle, made from tiny slithers of monochrome leather. Vertical strips of woven silk chainmail added an edge of the attitude the designers are known and loved for, while ostrich feather skirts and pointed pumps with knotted bows injected a touch of feminine glamour.

Proenza Schouler is all about detail – in particular, the kind of textile details that only come into their own upon closer inspection. The welded laser-cut tops and dresses are a prime example – the impressive intricacy of which is truly revealed when seen up close.

Neutral in terms of colour and print compared to last season’s offering, Proenza Schouler’s collection combines soft, quiet style with exquisite detail and expert finishes.

New York Fashion Week concludes today, while London Fashion Week starts tomorrow.
