A New York label at Paris Haute Couture Week

Defined as “en exercise in crossing borders”, the Ready-To-Wear Proenza Schouler‘s collection presented in Paris is an eclectic fusion that explores the spirit and heritage of American craft. Yet, the New York-based designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez conceived a very clean and precise result. The aim was to interpret the spirit of a voyager collecting memories and objects along the way.

That’s why the silhouettes -that vary from long and linear, to loose and relaxed- are embellished with neo-hippy elements; a reflection of the global community that assimilates pieces from all around the world.

The inspiration in a nonspecific ethnicity becomes somewhat exotic, here combined with luxurious shearling and tailored coats.

A sense of handcraft is perceived in the use of macramé cording, alongside woven leather and ikat prints arranged on velvet turtlenecks and longline dresses.

Crocheted dresses are made with mixed tribal motifs; fringing and intricate reptile patchworks are employed alongside metal embroideries on chiffon. An interesting patchwork is made instead with chenille threads.
