New York Fashion Week Backstage: Proenza Schouler
World Wide Web, high fashion style.
Proenza Schouler is inspired by the internet. Digital prints are spliced and fragmented like a virtual reality, made up of images grabbed from Google. Leather is key, be it laminated, perforated, patchworked or all three. There are strange skins of snake and iguana, bursts of neon green and tangerine. Pockets are pervasive, halterneck dresses too. Schouler staples, like boxy jackets, stay strong.
