Proenza Schouler Spring 2014 #NYFW

"A tranquil purity pervaded the runway as the designers channeled the chic subtlety that made their spring show so spectacular, in a very different direction. They worked under the influence of West Coast midcentury furniture designers and Arte Povera, the late Sixties movement based on simplicity and nature — two defining principles of this collection, particularly in the daywear. With a palette skewed earthy in shades of cream, navy, clay and yellow, Hernandez and McCollough’s opening silhouettes combined lean structure with rich materials (such as suede and crepe) that moved gracefully. Nothing was stiff. An ecru cotton crepe dress with a high neck and long, slim sleeves cut a clean line, and featured six precisely placed silver turnlocks on the chest. Every detail was measured but made to feel organic, such as the cotton crepe jackets and midlength culottes printed to look like the seams had been traced in paint strokes." -
