I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces from Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough’s Proenza Schouler SS 2015 presentation. For the new season, the Proenza woman is ladylike, but she’s a little off-kilter. While the color palette evoked prep school chic, the shapes were firmly rooted in traditional American sportswear. Impeccable silhouettes and innovative fabrics are the design duo’s signatures. Highlights included black and white grid prints paired with forest green, a white perforated leather jacket and some sensational finale dresses. For SS 2015, Proenza Schouler is serving a sporty sophistication, straight up!
What really caught my eye were the tank dresses at show’s end. These were made from intricately woven silk that had been pulled apart at the hem to create long sweeps of fringe. I’m just going to say it… I’m a sucker for all things fringe! Whether it’s swinging from a flapper dress or a 1970s style leather maxi skirt – fringe adds a sexy, textural component to dressing that is both seductive and playful. These flirty frocks were not only pretty, but ahead of the curve.
*I love the deconstructed argyle “sweater dress.” It looks as if the knit top is melting into the fringed skirt. Bravo!
