New York Fashion Week: Proenza Schouler Autumn/Winter 14
"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.
