Who said there has to be a difference between structure and softness? Not Proenza Schouler obviously, who stomped on the line between the two in their most recent fall ready-to-wear collection. Sharp coats and shaped dresses ornamented with abstract shapes, fur, and cutouts made up the collection. The first looks of the show followed a color scheme of gray and maroon. Since gray is a color of structure and concrete, and maroon is more of a strong, feminine color; the two of them together represented Proenza Schouler well: a strong, but not scary, independence and self-assuredness. The oval fishnet stockings acted as a common factor in the all of looks as well as symbol of consistent structure in a gentler way, but still not without the strength. A nice detail on most of the hemlines was the thick, fringe-like flaps to add some character to the movement. The show ended with whites, blacks, and brighter hues of red, an even sharper look. The last three looks were all the same dress in the three different colors, but what a dress it was! Sequins and feathers and fringe and transparency. In Proenza Schouler's case, there's no such thing as too much of a good thing.
