The fashion industry's "It-boys," Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez showcase their Spring 2009 collection with a vengeance so to speak. Putting their usual prettier, feminine frocks to the side for the time being, these guys brought along a more upbeat, 80s kind of vibe to each of their pieces. With models strutting down the runway (with pouty red lips, quirky round sunglasses, and evident Jerry Hall-ish flowing hair), Proenza Schouler executed this collection in the form of bold, broad shoulders, funky jumpsuits, silky parachute pants, high-waists, vintagey dresses, hardcore leathers, and a definite, gutsy take on the dolman sleeve.
Although a number of these pieces can be quite wearable, I don't think this collection is meant for the faint-hearted. Though it seems their exposed bra-cup tops and dresses still stand as their trademark hit, I just think this particular collection does comes across as a definite head-turner and deserves a worthy mention. What do you guys think?
