Proenza Schouler AW15
Designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough have a knack for constructing clothes that are at once ladylike and edgy and their AW15 line-up, which they showcased at the Whitney Museum, was no exception. Inspired by photos of women in the Forties attending art exhibitions (making the location of the show all the more apt), the duo presented curvy midi dresses, ponyskin skirts and outerwear with sprays of fur. The dresses, some in knitted, others in crepe, featured strategically-placed cut-aways for a more contemporary silhouette. In black, white or scarlet, they formed the backbone of the collection. Meanwhile, mohawks of fur appeared on boiled wool coats and jackets which came over tweed trousers or cow-printed pencil skirts. The final exits saw paillette-encrusted bandage dresses wrapped around the models' bodies – avant-garde, no doubt, and sure to be a hit with the fash pack.
Who we saw: UK Vogue's Sarah Harris.
What they wore: A white fur cape and Adidas Stan Smiths.
In a nutshell: Ladylike gets a makeover.
