NEW YORK FASHION WEEK FALL 2017

Behold: Proenza Schouler’s Very New York Goodbye to New York Fashion Week

Last week, Proenza Schouler’s design duo Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough announced that that going forward, they will present their collections biannually during Paris Haute Couture, meaning Fall 2017 would be their last show at New York Fashion Week. Appropriately, their farewell collection was an all-in-one wardrobe for chic New Yorkers, complete with unfussy leather pants, oversized bags, and sexy, wearable dresses. It’s the stuff McCollough and Hernandez are known for—in fact, several pieces directly recalled their own archive. It wasn’t entirely a celebration of the past, however: the duo did innovate on the expected with the introduction of a new logo that split Proenza and Schouler straight down the middle, letting the label hang loose from hoodies and handbags alike. Brave new world out there.
