We’re usually (and unabashedly) the Proenza Schouler boys’ biggest fans, but their latest video starring Second Life avatars has us waffling.
In W‘s newest installment of Lynn Hirschberg‘s Screen Tests, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler chat about how they met 14 years ago, their now-legendary senior thesis at Parsons, and their process of creating new collections.
It seems Proenza Schouler‘s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are somewhat torn between luxury ‘glamping’ and communing with nature in the real, non-Vogue-endorsed sense. The designers were profiled in the New York Times this week at their rustic retreat in the Berkshires, the very same abode where they keep pigs and chickens and hold marathon [...]
On May 7, designers, models, actresses, and all sorts of fashionable peeps will come out to support the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute exhibit honoring Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. (Even if Prada herself isn’t a fan.) But the opening Gala is as much about the attendees as it is the honorees, which means the invite list is a Very Big Deal.
A big congratulations are due to Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler‘s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the newest members of the CFDA Board of Directors!
So, you know, art. We think that’s what Harmony Korine was trying to create with his new short film for Proenza Schouler, but we just watched and we’re a little freaked out.
After crossing lots of t’s and dotting lots of i’s, the Italian private equity group Permira has sold a share of the Proenza Schouler brand to a group of American investors led by Theory founder and CEO Andrew Rosen.
The theme of W‘s July issue is music and style, and while we loved the mag’s feature on Beyoncé, our favorite spread involves 10 designers and their stylish musical muses.
Proenza Schouler‘s PS1 bag is one of the most covetable accessories to have debuted in recent years. We’d venture to say it’s made it past “It Bag” status and is on its way to becoming a full-fledged classic. Unfortunately, as with any iconic design, knockoffs are inevitable. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez just never thought a company they’ve collaborated with would be the culprit.
The nominees for the Council of Fashion Designers of America‘s 2011 awards ceremony are set, and the list is more or less a roster of the coolest kids working in the industry. And when we say kids, we mean kids. Because for the most part, this year’s nominees are pretty young. Also: Lady Gaga was nominated!
Last week, I was thirty minutes late to a breakfast for Marc Jacobs‘ new fragrance Daisy Eau So Fresh because my 6-year-old French Bulldog (a recent rescue from rural Oklahoma) had taken an unsupervised ride in my building’s elevator and ended up wandering happily around the fourth floor, no doubt wondering what sort of parallel universe he’d been transported into because everything was the same and yet so very different. And if you’re wondering why on earth I’m telling you this, it’s because the exact same thing happened to Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and his five-pound canine, Jojo. Well, almost.
It’s been rumored for a long time that Theory president Andrew Rosen has had his eye on Proenza Schouler. Now industry insiders say his dream of buying the company may turn into reality.
If there is anyone who knows how to shut it down on the runway with a cool factor slant on fashion, it is Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. The Proenza Schouler twosome win my heart season after season, most recently with their graffiti fun F/W Collection which is full of eye-catching wardrobe prizes, like today’s Graphic Silk Babydoll Dress.
Today we learned how to pronounce Proenza Schouler from Martha Stewart. Seriously. The homemaking mogul was joined on her show by Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the duo behind the brand.
While her personal style may be a tad buttoned up for our tastes, Martha Stewart has decided to get a bit more fashionable and run a series of sartorial segments on her show. Starting today, The Martha Stewart Show will welcome guests such as Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler fame, Andre Leon Talley of Vogue and ANTM, and Robbie Myers, editor in chief of Elle Magazine.
