proenza schouler | pre-fall 2015


Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough opted for a more reminiscent Pre-Fall 2015 collection, focusing this season on revisiting a few favorite looks from the past, while introducing new, more experimental ideas. Pre-collections, after all, supply the perfect opportunity for designers to display more creative freedom than with their main season counterparts.

While translating classic American appeal into an overall menswear-inspired lineup, this season emerged full of textured knitwear, wearable argyle options and fluid silhouettes. And although they remained equally chic and refined with an abundance of grays and browns, Proenza Schouler continued to showcase textural innovations – a definite point of continual intrigue when it comes to following this New York-based label.

balenciaga | spring 2015


Alexander Wang took Spring 2015 as his opportunity to break free from the reverent tones of the iconic Cristóbal Balenciaga and previous creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, which he had attentively pursued throughout the collections since his onboarding.

the row | spring 2015



The Row_29

This season marks the first collection The Row has presented since the departure of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s design director Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski last March. As they have since reported the position will not be filled, the label has without doubt recognized a certain path for victory with the evocation of true grace and style for Spring 2015, a collection caught somewhere between organic warmth and subtle elegance.

While every piece was unique and unparalleled, with loose wraps, vibrant colors and a certain palpable gravitas, a distinct charm rebounded within the venue, a raw-furnished fifth-floor warehouse in Soho. Already, this was to be a collection to remember.
