Proenza Schouler Fall 2013

My favorite designers create amazing collection for Fall 2013.“We feel a little grown-up now,” said Lazaro Hernandez backstage after the elegantly authoritative Proenza Schouler show. “We are  not in our twenties anymore! We have grown up on a business level and aesthetically and we wanted [the collection] to feel that way.”

Inspired by those strange palimpsests, the designers developed intriguing fabrics that also revealed hidden layers—an oversize sweater that seemed ombré, woven from dark to light, but was in fact made from leather, needle-pierced so that filaments of the shaggy wool double-facing could be pulled through to suggest shading. Those thick bouclés were in fact crafted from spongy tulle tweed or from a rubbery synthetic, the “tweeds” from strips of woven leather, and the abstract motif bubble lace was layered with an appliqué of tiny motifs that had been laser-cut from other bonded crepe pieces in a pattern the designers called “high-frequency,” and that evoked the work of the eighties Memphis designers.
It was a collection is  at the top of the game.
