After last season’s grungy, gothic collection Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez have clearly decided to lighten up.
The Proenza girl has been given a ladylike and grown-up make-over for next spring – there was barely a trouser in sight and the label’s signature flippy mini skirts have been replaced by a longer hemline.
The looks had a hint of Fifth Avenue about them – piped pencil skirts, printed box jackets and silk blouses – but there was enough sportiness thrown in the mix to make them seem youthful. And with classic, ultra wearable pieces and a sprinkling of more directional designs, there was something to satisfy every Proenza fan.
Last summer’s much-coveted long sleeved techno tops had been given an update and this time around came in slightly more muted bright chiffon with dip dyed patches and woven fronts. Dresses ranged from dyed, ultra simple, loose fitting shapes to sheer sporty numbers with ruffles.
But most likely to be fought over were the stiffly woven pieces in eye-popping brights – shifts, skirts and loose, hanging dresses that we predict we’ll spot the A-list sporting in no time at all.
