Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2013
For Proenza Schouler's Pre-Fall 2013 offering, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez applied a mix of inventive patterns and imagery to the shapes they've had success with in the past.
The blue and orange hues from photographs the designing duo took on a trip to Fiji ended up on a number of pieces, most notably a coat with an asymmetrical neckline. A painterly logo print got cut up for trousers cut on the bias and a belted shift with a carwash hem.
That these pieces are simpler in shape and implication than their runway counterparts — as most precollections are — may have to do with McCollough and Hernandez's new roles as retailers who want to sell product. But it could also very well be a sign that after a decade in the business, these two young men are growing up.
