Proenza Schouler Hasn't Heard Anything About the Death of Print
There wasn't a single look in Proenza Schouler's Autumn/Winter 2014 collection that didn't involve prints. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez took a definite departure from their past two collections, which eased up on graphic elements, and went whole hog with prints that looked like abstracted versions of everything from giraffe skin to zebra stripes to wood grain and beyond.
A closer look reveals that many of these prints were actually more complicated, but the designing duo grounded them in the shapes that have become their signatures: an orange-and-black bustier top connected to a red-and-black printed skirt, while a green-and-black jacket with generous shoulders layered over a long sweater and a teal skirt.
If the clothes weren't cool enough, the shoes definitely made a statement. Every single model wore flats, making the pieces even easier to move around in.
