Editorial

The brand’s first show in Paris since Proenza Schouler said goodbye to New York was a balanced mix of the style codes of creative duo McCollough and Hernandez and French craftsmanship, whose techniques and beauty the two designers enlisted. This American-style couture started with a series of asymmetric tops and pencil skirts with a central split and raw-cut hems, decorated with large cross-body ruffles topped, in subsequent looks, by leather harness-bras. Skirts were paired with elongated blazers and floral coats with solid shoulders for a strong contrast, while ruffles and draping returned later in the show on stretch lace dresses. French craftsmanship was also expressed in the micro-puckering on sheaths, in silk ribbons hanging off floral slip dresses further embellished with hook-and-eyes and in the feathered finale.
