The collection is an exercise in crossing borders. A trail of eclecticism weaves throughout – the spirit of a voyager collecting memories and objects along the way. A sense of handcraft is present in both clothing and accessories in the form of macramed leather cording, crocheted metal embroideries on chiffon, artisanal tie-dyes, and intricate leather patchwork. Silhouettes vary from long and lean, to loose and relaxed, instilling a feeling of ease and modernity integral to Proenza Schouler.
Proenza Schouler is a New York based womenswear and accessories brand founded in 2002 by designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. The duo met while studying at Parson’s School of Design eventually collaborating on their senior thesis which became their first collection as Proenza Schouler. Named after the designers’ mothers’ maiden names, the collection was bought in its entirety by Barneys New York.
