Is Proenza Schouler the Official Cool-Girl Uniform For Spring?
Now that the runway has wrapped, we can turn our attention to the really important things, like placing bets on which Proenza Schouler Spring '15 look Kate Bosworth will wear first — or any of Hollywood's cool girls for that matter. That's always a sure thing with any Proenza lineup, a sign of Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's reputation for delivering the impossibly cool — which inevitably become staples among the crew of fashion-conscious A-listers.
So there's no doubt that we'll see the designers' take on fringe on the red carpet in the near future — a slinky set of dresses and skirts with shredded hemlines that deliver an effortless, unexpected kind of sexy. In fact, much of the collection might not be what you were expecting. For starters, the collection features a darker palette — think deep greens, black, white, grey, and then a pop of royal blue and rust. So much of it, too, is crafted in leather — jackets, dresses, and trousers. And while so many find inspiration in Spring blooms, you won't find any here; this collection is punctuated with polka dots, python, and smart black-and-white checks that feel all at once polished but statement-making, the stuff great street style moments are made of.
