Proenza Schouler played with serious proportions during New York Fashion Week this season; oversize jackets and boxy silhouettes in heavy fabrics with leather and quilted details hit the runway, as judo, fencing, and karate sports ran alongside the idea of protection as a heavy inspiration on the collection. Designers, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough took Asian inspirations from their recent visit to Bhutan, which were seen throughout the color palette of white, cream, black, and rust. Proenza Schouler’s mix of clean and asymmetrical silhouettes with this particular color palette was far from lackluster, as the attention to leather and embroidery details within the pieces were exceptional, especially with the multi-color leather weaved mini skirts paired with an large than life crewneck sweater. Each piece was more unique than the last, making it almost impossible to wait for the collection to hit the stores!
