Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2012










Quote:
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez showed a polished Proenza Schouler collection with a techy edge. A sleeveless snap-up shirtdress with an A-line skirt and drawstring waist was like a chic reinterpretation of a Windbreaker in purple performance nylon, while engineered tweeds in bright colors were used on what McCollough called “our lady jackets,” cut in an oversize constructed shape.

It's funny, this looks like a lot of there usual stuff but I'm always a sucker for their fall clothes I like how it wasn't over-styled with clunky shoes or jewelry. The pumps just pull it all together~

It's a good collection, but I expected more. I have to say that the styling is a bit off, the pumps don't go with some of the outfits.

none of this looks very feminin, which I guess was their point. I just really love the luxurious fabrics, but I feel they could have done more with it....

I love the silhouettes and cuts and the color palette is awesome and it's very reminiscent of their F/W 2010 collection which I loved but the fabric choices make me not like this. I dislike the quilted pieces and I'm not a fan of those drawstrings everywhere (I know Proenza has done that before but to me it just looks cheap). The only true highlights in this collection for me are the turquoise mini dress and the boxy cropped black sweater with the dark green high-waisted skirt (it looks like that could actually be a dress, though?).

i like that green crinkled (brocade?) material they use here.

i think they should avoid using that windbreaker material however. it looks cheap no matter how they cut they garment.

That midnight blue quilted dress is literally the silhouette I think of when I think of Proenza.
I love the volume of the drop-shoulder jackets, I love the textures, I love the palette, I'm less struck by the sort of water-proof dresses, they're more Alexander Wang's territory, but otherwise, to me, this is pushing fashion forward - these guys are unique in the way they design - they have interesting ideas and they match them with an incredible pair of trousers (is that sky-blue pair number four of pre-fall 2012?).
Really enjoy.

Love the colour palette and the proportions. And the fabrics / quilting seems new for them. It will be interesting to see how this will translate into their Fall Winter collection!

This looks like late 80s school teacher outfits done in weather baloon/ windbreaker material.
