Proenza Schouler

One of my absolute favourites of all time, Proenza Schouler, on the road to reconstruct itself. By the hand of Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the runway started with oversized deconstructed jacket, that followed fluid lines across the cleavage. A bit manly the cut and silhouette of the first portion of the collection, as the show went along the signature detailing began to emerge.


The collection was inspired by Asia, the pair found their vision of deconstruction on traditional outfits that require a particular ensemble, such as kimonos and the karate gis. The designers demonstrated their skill with artesanal work once again; the middle portion of the show presented the characteristic PS miniskirt with disproportion shirts. The jackets were beautiful, with purple and asymmetric front or  oversized and sheer, you name your favourite.

The prints and embroidery where based on birds and japanese art. The pheasant jacket was one of my favourites, the fabric was gorgeous; it was done is pastels this whole outfit, it definitely stands out of the rest of the collection. The colour palette was very organic, a selection of nudes, terracotas and purples. Accents of turquoise and gold, we have been seeing a lot of gold at the runways.  Accessories were kept minimal, but they contribute in bringing texture to the outfit.
