Front row guest, Hari Nef said in her Instagram captioning today’s show that when she grows up, she wants to be “as fun, cool, and expensive as the Proenza Schouler girl.” Us grownups don’t feel all that differently. Spring 2017 is turning out to be the season of fun, and the way that Jack and Lazaro have tapped into that wave resulted in one of the most exciting collections of the week.
Proenza likes to play with primary colors and neutrals, but this season was brighter. Instead of grey, graphic black and white was mixed with shades of saffron, poppy, cobalt and fire red. The palette suggests a girl who isn’t afraid to take risks and likes to stand out. She’s happier.
The designers also played around with proportions. Look one, an off-the-shoulder black and white pleated crêpe top got wider at the bottom, as did it’s matching uneven hemmed skirt. Other knits were wider on top and slimmer on the bottom, which felt very up-to-date. Some of the more oversize looks were belted with a long sleeved tee and others were belted with actual belts that resembled the way a T-shirt would be tied—also up-to-date is the way that these very casual pieces are being introduced as luxury. But where take this trend towards the dressed-down or streetwear route, Proenza makes it look chic and easy.
Hari Nef hit the nail on the head. There was a youthful spirit behind this collection, but the Proenza girl is very much grown up and she’ll always be fun.END
