• Proenza Schouler • A/W 14 •

'Abstraction' by Ron Nagle are beautiful pieces of art. Abstract impressionism plus the work of Mr. Nagle are perfect for the Proenza Schouler show during NYFW. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez were inspired by the above. The prospect of this is chilling... In a good way. I am just fascinated by the abstract works by Ron Nagle.

When they presented the collection instantly recognisable was the couture shapes. Marchesa, Thom Browne and Zac Posen did this well for Fall.

I loved the cracked prints and how odd pairings of prints were made. For example a grey printed overcoat with a white turtle-neck printed top and black tapered trousers. Lug heeled shoes were added.

I loved also the mixture of colours, specifically blue and green, and cream and red. My jaw hit the floor in awe with Look 23. It was the exact same as the picture they shared with NY Magazine. A cobalt blue dress, with black leather, white, and yellow and black speckled print panels. It was tremendously superb. Look 31 which reminded me of meteorological isobars in black and white was another look I ranked highly. Having not yet seen Marc Jacobs, I cannot yet call this the best collection of New York Fashion Week. I think MJ will be on par though.

The fluidity yet solidity of the clothes was interesting. The shapes and the colours roped me into the fashionable haze that is Jack and Lazaro's wonderful label. Named after their mother's maiden names; Proenza and Schoulder, it shows mothers give the best gifts. Theres was two immensely talented geniuses.
