Much like being on an acid trip, Proenza Schouler’s fall campaign video heightens your senses (or at least it tricks you into thinking it does). The colors are more vivid, the lights brighter, and in true hallucinogen form, there’s even parrot sightings and galaxy-hopping. Sasha Pivovarova stars in the trip amidst psychedelic shapes and patterns, and while it might scare you at first, you soon realize you’re essentially taking LSD with the Russian beauty, and that’s actually kind of a fashion dream come true.
You can’t choose your family but you can choose your friends. Especially when you’re the Proenza Schouler boys and have a flock of sartorial elites practically falling at your feet.
Long before their PS1 handbags were a dime a dozen outside Lincoln Center and editors sat pining at their screens over their patchwork leathers, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez were just two rookie designers making their much-buzzed-about debut at New York Fashion Week. Needless to say, they’ve come a long way, but Barneys New York is tapping into that initial excitement with an exclusive capsule collection of updated pieces from fall 2003, aptly called, “Proenza Schouler: First Collection.”
Along with Rag & Bone and Marchesa, and with the help of the CFDA and Vogue, the brand will be showing this summer in a certain mega global market.
We don’t know what was going on on the red carpet at the Los Angeles screening of Kirsten Dunst‘s new movie Upside Down, but suffice it to say it was not good. There were hipster jumpsuits, bow-adorned minidresses, sad satin blazers, and more. In fact, Dunst’s Proenza Schouler heels may have been the only redeeming quality in a lineup that went from bland to bad.
Proenza Schouler is a go-to brand for cult accessories, and its forthcoming shoe line with new licensor Iris SpA is definitely going to be an immediate hit.
We’re usually (and unabashedly) the Proenza Schouler boys’ biggest fans, but their latest video starring Second Life avatars has us waffling.

Garance Doré‘s video series “Pardon My French” is full of adorable clips. In this installment, she heads over to Proenza Schouler‘s studios to witness a model casting first hand.
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.
Fresh off a smash hit of a Fall collection, Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez, the designers behind New York label Proenza Schouler, talk about their aspirations for the label and what it’s like to design downtown duds alongside chickens and pigs.
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.
Fashion Week starts in less than two days, and designers are totally freaking out. If Hurricane Irene didn’t set them back, material shortages have. And some are going pretty great lengths to make sure their runway shows go off without a hitch.
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.
Move over pastel, neon is this summer’s palette of choice. From the runways of New York to Milan, neon pieces have been brightening up simple looks or making statements with neon-on-neon layering. But for those of us who don’t look as good in head-to-toe shades of highligher, we’ve collected a plethora of neon belts, skirts, jewelry, shoes, and bags to keep you looking chic without looking like you had an unfortunate run-in with a Spacemaker during finals week.
Alexander Wang has a thing for vaguely non-traditional advertising — remember those image pieces? — which is why his latest effort doesn’t come as much of a surprise. It also reminds us of many things!
Fast food uniforms aren’t known for being the most fashion-forward, but who says that has to be the case?
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.
