Proenza Schouler is the brand that Balenciaga should be. Ghesquiere created the super-modern Balenciaga, but he's too lost in trying to be the trendsetter now, with gimmicks and styling in the form of plastic chunky knit and visor-hats.
Proenza Schouler continously offers extremely well-designed clothing, using unique fabrics, techniques and finishings that balance perfectly with each other to create unique clothing. I love how they have adopted hipster skirts for skirt-suits and high turtle necks for dresses as their trademark silhouettes.
Standout pieces here include the red patent jacket with the circular details with print beneath(?), the dress with the voluminous sleeves scarred with sheer panels to reveal the much thinner arm beneath. They used an abundance of those large metal eyelets to weight down those would-be flippy skirts towards the end, giving the dresses an unusual mixture of weights and movements.
I'm never in love with patchwork or much print, but I think what they've done was done rather well.
