collections Uncategorized

proenza schouler‘s jack mccollough and lazaro hernandez may have been young pups during the 80s, but the duo used references like alaia, surfwear and hervé léger in their s/s collection.

the looks included a linen tankdress with striped crisscross straps, crisp button down shirt with a stretch paneled mini, body hugging knits and skinny trousers, flippy minidresses, racerback tanks in bright stripes, boxy linen blazers, and a quilted leather trench. the duo also continued their foray into accessories, sending the girls down the runway in white plastic aviator shades, mens-style hats, thick wood platform sandals with suede or rubber straps worn with socks, and leather belts.

over at narciso rodriguez, the designer continued exploring the looser aesthetic he started with the f/w collection. there was a square pattern patent leather raincoats, short dresses with leather breastplates and bolero jackets, peplum jackets, 60s-ish mod dresses with cutouts at the sleeves, lean capris, and trenches with flared hems and fitted waists. he also dipped into embellishment, with square beading on empire waist short dresses or intricate lacing on bodices and waists. there were also a few evening looks: a cutout back bustier with long silk skirt, silk gowns in white, fuschia, and black, with chestplates, simple shiny trim, or strategic seaming.
