Proenza Schouler Presents a Colorful, Parisian Inspired Spring Summer 2017 Collection at New York Fashion Week.
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez made a few updates to their signature Proenza Schouler aesthetic for the SS17 season. Aside from changing the date and time of their New York fashion week show, the duo also revamped how it sees color. For the past few seasons, the Proenza Schouler color palette has been dominated by neutral tones and the occasional appearance of bold color. This latest collection holds nothing back as the boys foray into a world of mesmerizing colors and wonder.
The boys explained that their recent trip to Paris inspired them greatly. As souvenirs, the designers brought back visions of stripes, Mondrian-esque color blocking on clingy knit dresses, knotted fabric details on bodices, peephole dresses and blouses, instaria fur coats and a few woven leather numbers. The collection also paid homage to two fashion greats. References to Issey Miyake’s esque-plisse and elements of Christian Dior’s iconic Bar Jacket, updated with peplum details flashed throughout the collection. McCullough and Hernandez also emphasized handcrafted details. Acute craftsmanship including leather weaving of skirts and tops, created an opulent feeling of luxury. Silhouettes were asymmetric and playful, drawing the eye down, outwards, and up again.
