After announcing a few weeks ago that they will be presenting fashion shows in Paris since the next season, Lazaro Hernandez‘s and Jack McCollough‘s autumn-winter 2017 collection at Proenza Schouler felt like a good-bye. Although the designers say that they will surely come back to New York in the future, this temporary departure might be a fist hit for NYFW: Proenza Schouler is (or rather was) one of the most beloved and talked about brands since its very beginnings.
Changes are coming and the boys are ready for the new chapter. That’s why their latest outing was a classical Proenza Schouler collection, with marvellous coats (the opening look on newcomer Cleo Cwiek is worth drooling over and over again) and layered, body-exposing, pleated dresses. The bracelets were especially intriguing, as their fluid-like form looked sculptural on the models’ hands. PS logo was cut and used as boldly-coloured zippers for the outerwear and clutch bags. Lazaro and Jack tend to say theire creativity is fuelled by the city’s incredible energy – and these clothes will surely become a New Yorker’s (and not only) day-to-day gear.
