I am likey liking their take on modern and well tailored femininity. It's a cool mix of prim but with an edge. However it's their detailing that really makes their pieces unique. I think I may have a new brand to give some affection to.
Here's my faves from their New York 2012 catwalks.
With it's Hawian leafs, florals and giraffe prints there was a definite tribal/ safari theme going on. Yet it was done in a fresh way. Although some pieces in this collection don't quite tickle my fancy, here's the pieces that stood out.
|Ahhh a bit of a 50s vibe here how can I not have loved this!|
|The stripes. The pvc.|
|Lime green with a hint of tiger print! Mmmmmmm.|
Now I liked their S/S don't get me wrong, however when I hit the winter catwalk things just went to the next level.
Proenza Schouler A/W 2012 said "The girl's are back in town and they mean business".
The models wore the attire with a slightly grungy style, with their hair, the chunky black boots, holding the handbags like it were a bikers helmet. The designs were strong and boxy, giving a new take on androgyny.
I love the edginess and every piece will be placed on my "if i was a rich girl nanananana" wish list.
I want to keep writing about how amazing this collection is but as a picture says a thousand words....
|Japanesie, ethentic print. I didn't a see that coming! But Ohh myy.|
|Another shade darrliinnng!|
Hmmm I may have gone a bit crazzayy on the old picture uploading situation but seriously it could have been much worse. Anyway I hope you share my adoration (if thats even a word).
