Since launching Proenza Schouler in 2002, New York based designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough have become known for the effortless fusion of craftsmanship and attention to detail in their refined womenswear brand. Having met whilst studying at Parsons School of Design, the duo worked together on their senior thesis which then became their first collection as Proenza Schouler. The brand, named after their mothers’ maiden names takes inspiration from youth culture and contemporary art, with an emphasis on tailoring and custom developed fabrics the collections encapsulate a sense of refined ease.
SS16 Proenza Schouler is about the act of unravelling; designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez looked at bananas and things that peel away from the body as inspiration for their Spring/Summer collection. Silk shirts spill off shoulders, ruffles fall away from dresses and skirts flow in asymmetric streams of silk. Preoccupations with texture and detailing are evident in the high-tech, laser-cut mesh knit dresses and tiered crepe dresses with exaggerated frills whilst tailored pieces are executed with minimal precision; stripping away sleeves to leave double-breasted vest tunics which are fastened with contrasting velvet ribbons. In an almost exclusively black, white and red colour palette, bold jacquard pieces are softened with light fabrics and romantic silhouettes to exude a soft sensuality. Centred around elegant cut-away construction, innovative fabrication and double-faced bow detailing the Latin-inspired collection evokes a unique and graceful sensibility.
