Lazaro and Jack have done it yet again; they've served up a collection that despite it being brooding, is definitive and wearable.
The mixing of various textures is what really beckons. Light fabrics like metallics and sequins were melded with heavy wools and velvets, creating a maturely chic environment. Cocoon coats, sequined and satin wide-leg pants, fur-collar jackets and button-down shift dresses contributed to the serious collection. To add some femininity, the boys presented jewel-tone mini dresses in purple, forest green, and mustard yellow.
It's because of Proenza Schouler that I am now looking forward to Fall!
