PROENZA SCHOULER – FALL 2013 COLLECTION
For their Fall 2013 collection Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez chose a colour palette of mostly black, white with touches of mint and peach. ”This season is a riff on classicism, so it’s a bit of a more feminine approach for them” stated the pairs makeup artist Diane Kendal. The collection was created with stunning fabrics; elaborate, refined and elegant. As stated by style.com, ‘one laser-cut material with what looked like hundreds of heat-fused embroideries was created via a process called ultrasonic welding’. Favourite looks being the embroidered dresses in long vertical chain links, the various clean cut coats and the gorgeous laser cut colour blocked tops and pencil skirts. I also really loved the accessories, the cut out heels and the printed bags – superb!
Hernandez stated backstage, “It was all just soft, that’s the one word we were thinking about. Softness of form, softness of colour, softness of texture.” The pairs hairstylist, Paul Hanlon explained the overall look, ”They’re architectural couture clothes for Fall, but there’s a reality to them, so we don’t want the hair to look too groomed.”
What a wonderful collection! I enjoyed every part!
