Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough at Proenza Schouler returned to New York after a couple of shows in Paris and it marked the beginning of a new period, as they explained “we want the clothes to be fashion, but also to be more real”. Real like denim, which dominated the collection in a bleached wash on blazers, A-line skirts with oblique fastening, drop-waist and apron dresses, shirts and giant bags. These were teamed with masculine pieces such as sleeveless blazers, gilets and high-waist trousers with darts and wide belts, while there were almost no prints or textures, with the exception of some tie-dye effects and a few shots of New York applied to hems or backs. The other real fabric, canvas twill, was used for trenches and monochrome outfits that were so simple as to look ordinary.
