Fall 2011: Proenza Schouler

4 Nov

God. I don’t know where to begin. I’m going to start by saying that Spring’s Proenza Schouler collection was one of my top of all time. The designers, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, were inspired by a road trip to Santa Fe that they took. The inspiration from Native American culture is so pervasive and so beautifully done. These aren’t typical native prints though — rather than focus on the whole design, they focused on aspects of part of the design — what I mean is they took a single aspect and enlarged it so that it became a print itself. This is just genius. While there are many influences from tribal prints this season — this is so unique and sets them apart from the rest. I was intensely impressed by this collection and some of the wrap, print, boldly colored and designed dresses pain me because they’re so beautiful and unique. I also love the cut blazers over the bold colored tops — a simple combination but very well executed. These two have made their shows a staple of NY Fashion Week and become a staple in the fashion world. Always impressive.
