New York Fashion Week: Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2012

The destination: Hawaii. The collection: Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2012. From a wood grained-printed nylon jersey jacket to yellow botanical prints on a cropped poplin shirt, the collection took audiences back to the tropical destination with the introduction of bandeau tops, swimwear-esque bodysuits and tightly woven raffia dresses reminiscent of hula skirts. While the prints and colours were retro, shapes remained modern and svelte in their strict tailoring. I adored the skirts which were wrapped like saris and sleeveless necklines, all highlighting a shapely figure. Though McCullough and Hernadez affixed their collection to a very specific reference and time period, the collection was neither cliche nor overly nolstalgic, and managed to remain vibrant, fresh and true to this current era.
