Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear : Proenza Schouler

This was a knockout collection for me. I am a lover of Proenza Shouler and actually own a pair of shoes from the brand. Their modern take on fashion is always so perplexing and intriguing, and when I saw this collection I had no choice but to write and review it straight away. It truly was mesmerising - in a very complicated sense of atelier for a Ready-to-Wear collection...

The two creative directors of Proenza Schouler are the New Yorker Designer, Jack McCollough and his Floridian born co-founder Lazaro Hernandez. Together, the two men founded Proenza Schouler in 2002 in New York City. Their creative visions come together to provide such beautiful work of colour, print and craftsmanship. Backstage at this particular show, the two explained how they traveled to Paris to visit and educate themselves furthermore at Couture Ateliers. It as evident from these pieces that the techniques and ideas they had discovered there had been used in this collection : dresses were woven by leather and feathers glued on strips of material. Fabrics are always essential in fashion, as is the craftsmanship behind it. That is what makes a designer brand so luxurious and expensive. Alongside the bold colours, the designers really focused on dimensions and asymmetries. This was evident in the majority of their looks with layers. Box styled oversized tops which were layered over long sleeved tops which also conveyed a very street feel. The collection overall demonstrated the pair's forward thinking and furtristic creative vision of fashion, and I for one cannot wait to see more from Proenza Schouler.
