CLOSE UP | Proenza Schouler A/W 2012

ph / Vogue, Refinery29, private

Mighty as a samurai, fast as a ninja. The Proenza Schouler Autumn/Winter collection 2012 was definitely inspired by the old Asian kingdom with mighty emperors and humble people. Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough created a daring show, in which they proposed new silhouettes and headed East for inspiration—think karate, kimonos and Yoko Ono. Last had the honor to provide the runway track of the show. "It's Asian," said Hernandez, describing the collection's look, "but in a New York way." Deep red, shocking blue varied with lighter, pastelhues form the base of the colourpalette. What I find appealing in a great runway show is cohesion or unity in thoughts, challenging silhouettes and empowering materials. I did not have to look for one of these. Proenza Schouler took all of my wishes and created a show of dreams. I just pretend I didn't see the kitchy metallic blazers which felt a bit cheap-chinese-wok-restaurant. Just squeeze your eyes so those pictures become one hazy glitter finale. Enjoy these mix of backstage photos, details, runway looks and take-away Chinese.
