Proenza Schouler Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

“Glass and chrome and white lacquer, mixed up with a shaggy Moroccan rug… It’s minimal but there’s a warmth, an earthiness to it with all those green plants.” This is how Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez describe the Proenza Schouler spring/summer 2014 collection cast at New York Fashion Week. In fact, even if they didn’t utter a word about the line, the pieces of the collection would speak for themselves perfectly and comprehensively.

Inspired by midcentury furniture designers of the West Coast on one hand, and by the Arte Povera, an avant-garde movement based on the idea of naturalistic and true-to-life approach towards the art on the other, these two skillful designers created a line that is the best artistic representation of “the warmth of domesticity” transformed and channeled directly to the runway of New York Fashion Week. Simplicity is the most suitable key word for the Proenza Schouler spring/summer 2014 collection. The earthy colors are simply here to contribute to the completeness of the concept additionally. The “oversizedness” of the garments doesn’t not interfere with the nice look of the outfits in any sense.
The color combinations, as well as the fabrics used for the creation of the pieces are chosen interestingly and resourcefully. Thus, earthy yellow is put with black, at times replaced by bordeau tones. Don’t miss out the interesting prints of branches on some pieces. Created in black and white, they make you wonder whether that’s a black tree at the crack of dawn or a white-lit one at night. What refers to the fabrics, the solution selected with sumptuous suede and crepe is worth mentioning in this respect. The cute small turnlocks were simply great, put on that yellow-and-black jacket.

What’s coming next? That’s the pantsuit! Another descriptive element shaping the collection, in the most common sense of the word! Put within the colors of cream, white and black, they are simply ideal for the conceptual representation of the line. The final touch of the Proenza Schouler spring/summer 2014 collection was honored to culottes, which beautifully managed to do their part and to complete the longing of the designers to create something close to natural and unique while being breathtakingly simple.
