Proenza Schouler always has one of the strongest collections of New York fashion week , always finding the middle ground between the art of crafting beautiful clothing and wearablity. I found that in this season , they found this balance by defining the different textures with a minimalistic design. I think the fact that they are a team of designers instead of just one person makes them have a more open outlook in the creation process , they seem to always be striving to create a different texture to materials like tweed and leather . These tweed pieces , instead of being woven in wool , they where woven with thin leather strips and the laser cut dresses where cut using some kind of ultasonic welding process. With all the chains , leather and thick shapely fabrics , the collection exuded a very industrial new york vibe but the peeks of peach softened the aesthetic. Overall , it somehow trumps last seasons amazing collection.
