Designers often look to a specific era in the past when creating their collections, but this season, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler looked to the place most of us 2012-dwellers are spending the majority of our time right here in the present. According to WWD, Hernandez said the collection was inspired by "the Internet, the images you're bombarded with and the collage of information that you get every day." And in some cases, that gets literal: The dress above was created with Internet-sourced photos. See that and plenty of pixilated laser cut-outs, cut-and-paste patchworks, and other digitally inspired awesomeness after the jump.
