NYFW : Proenza Schouler Fall 2010


I never thought I would love the collection as much as I am now.
Featuring lots of prints, furs, baby doll dress, cheerleader skirts, leather as well as cut outs. Proenza Schouler also gave me a chic school-girl look. Scroll downt o read more about it.


Proenza attracted celebrities like Nicole Richie, Chloë Sevigny, Selma Blair, and Mary-Kate Olsen. Absolutely adored the color palette of the collection as well as the prints. The first outfit (above) suits Olivia Palermo so well. The blazer and leather shorts, perfect. I also love the dark green prints (middle), a bit egdy yet girly. But I'm not too sure about the last look, cut out + baby blue?.. someone tell me there's something wrong with my eyes.


The last 3 dresses above reminds me of Miu Miu Spring 2008 dresses and gave me a school girl vibe. Not that I hate it, its so adorable and who doesn't want to be a Proenza Schouler School Girl?

I adore the entire collection, from the leather bustier dress to plaited skirts, the leather office shorts and baby doll dresses. Making it one of my favorite NYFW Show. View the entire collection on style.com.

Style.com's Review by Nicole Phelps :
Not that anyone doubted that Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough were New York fashion's cool kids, but for confirmation, you had only to glance at their front row tonight. Crammed in tight were Nicole Richie, Chloë Sevigny, Selma Blair, and Mary-Kate Olsen, more than one of whom came with her own bodyguard. Those starlets—and their social-set seatmates—are the target audience for the duo's energetic Fall collection, which had the edgy naïveté and sexy legginess that have lately become Proenza Schouler signatures.

The designers started off with a toggle jacket cropped below the breasts in a manner reminiscent of the silhouettes in their very first runway show. It was paired with high-waisted skinny jeans in a graffiti print made in collaboration with the denim label J Brand. (Just try keeping those on shelves.) The model carried their new P.S. 11 bag, a more structured take on the P.S. 1, and forged ahead on wooden-platform, stacked-heel shoes.

The scribble motif wasn't the collection's only eye-grabbing pattern. To create the woven jacquards they used for their baby-doll minidresses (worn, like almost everything in the show, with thigh-high hose), Hernandez and McCollough took photocopies of plaids, jiggling the fabrics on the copier's plate glass to create their blurred, distorted effects. Other prep-school standbys got seriously tweaked as well. Varsity jackets came with purple or green fur collars, while a snappy cheerleader skirt was teamed with a luxe black fox sweatshirt.

Relatively subdued and spare by comparison were a pair of accordion-pleated flannel minidresses in navy and pine green that were layered over black mesh shirts. Sometimes even It girls needs to dress like grown-ups. If not quite the wow that the duo's winning Spring collection was, tonight's outing was still a smart, satisfying sequel.
