Proenza Schouler shows Internet-inspired line
Proenza Schouler showed a Spring/Summer 13 collection inspired by the “collage of information” people see daily last night.
Designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough showed on the penultimate day of New York Fashion Week and had already warned their line was about “randomness”.
They didn’t disappoint, offering a line which swapped from monochrome to bright orange with hints of lime in between.
“[It’s about] the Internet, the images you’re bombarded with and the collage of information that you get every day,” Hernandez said.
Laminated leathers were a big look, with some industry experts predicting they will be a new kind of leather for the season. Somewhat surprisingly for Spring/Summer they were fashioned into knee-length coats, coming in florescent orange and bright red.
They were also used to make waist-length coats with black accenting, paired with graphic printed skirts and knee boots.
Kilts were another big look, although they were modernised thanks to the leather detailing running vertically and horizontally.
The biggest inspiration appeared to be collage, so skirts had a patchwork feed with shades of red and black moulded together in versions which sat just below the knee.
Dresses came in chiffon and flowed, coupled with peep-toe knee boots with straps around the calf.
