Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez sent out what will be one of the most coveted collections for Spring 2014. Minimalistic tailoring, shiny metallic elements, streamlined tunics and coats were all cleverly crafted with a nod to the ’70s. - [StyleSight]

Cotton crepe pantsuits and a coat were garment-printed to look as if a paint roller had been taken to the fabric, with only the seams and edges untouched—they were more elegant than that description sounds. Hernandez and McCollough printed silk crepe dresses with silhouettes of branches and trees; it was remarkable how three-dimensional the patterns looked. And a coat was embroidered with a dense silk pile; it resembled nothing so much as a Moroccan Berber rug. All of those artful details could've weighed the collection down. The three-quarter-length hems of dresses, skirts, and cropped culottes might've looked droopy. But the designers mostly avoided those pitfalls. Meanwhile, pleats, which they began exploring in their Resort collection, got the couture treatment, bonded with razor-thin strips of silver and bronze foil. Those dresses looked effortless to wear; they'll be spending a lot of time on the red-carpet circuit. - []
