An experimental collection walked the runway yesterday for New York based label Proenza Schouler, by designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez

"It's about energy, humour, and speed," Lazaro Hernandez said backstage of Proenza Schouler Autumn/Winter 14 before adding, "We didn't overthink it; we said, 'Let's have fun.'" It's a definite move on from the label's furniture inspired creations for Spring/Summer 14, and this time building materials seem to have been in focus – in fact, an installation by structured sculpture ceramist Ron Nagle's at the Venice Biennale last year is cited as a starting point. 

Crackle-print jackets in orange and black, a speckled tunic in acid yellow and a peachy wood-grain miniskirt all featured, stalking to a remixed version of the track Work It by Missy Elliot.

Geometric patterns across leather, crepe and wool made up other fabrications, in turn making it quite clear that print – in its many different forms – is key to the cold weather season for the label.
