Proenza Schouler Fall/Winter 2016-2017

Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez  unveiled fall/winter 2016-2017 collection during NYFW.“It’s about control and release. Last season we were peeling away the layers, this season we were putting them back together again, sort of mending.”said Backstage  Hernandez backstage .  They achieved it a number of ways: via twisting and fastening tailored jackets and coats into snug hourglass shapes above hip-slung, full trousers, and via criss-crossing straps around the waist of clingy ribbed knit dresses. Most often they used lacing: up the front of a fine gauge sweater, cinching the sides of a classic jean jacket in red wool twill, holding together the lapels of a long blazer that looked as if it had been painted a pale yellow. A pair of tube dresses were bisected horizontally with laces loosely connecting top and bottom.The maritime-ish tailoring looked sharp. And the Knitwear- the dresses- were simply awesome!
