proenza schouler f/w 2012

Proenza Schouler's fall collection is the apotheosis of the aggressive feminine energy and Asian influence that are two of the season's biggest trends so far. The show opened with voluminous, oversize-yet-still-minimalistic white poplin jackets, shirt dresses and trousers before segueing into some utterly brilliant leather pieces. Here, the focus was on texture, with intricate woven leather miniskirts, fur lined moto jackets and sweatshirts. Karate coats came in a leather net and quilted leather. The show closed with gorgeous silk and chinoiserie brocade sweatshirts, skirts and mini dresses. In a video interview with WWD, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez said they wanted to create a textural collection while avoiding typical fall fabrics like wool and cashmere. They succeeded, and then some. Their fall offering is anything but typical and one of the most exciting of the week. See the complete collection here.
