If you thought black and white was about simplicity, think again. Proenza Schouler showed 36 looks in their Fall 2013 runway show tonight, all of them variations on the black and white theme, and all of them just as intricate and complicated as the embellished, print-heavy collections designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have become so well known for.
The show opened with a series of monochromatic minimalist looks with a distinctly mod vibe featuring Proenza's signature asymmetry, and moved from there into a run of sportier black and white looks with elegant variations on the track pant and varsity jacket. Skirts and jackets in small-scale B&W prints and dresses in metallic textures came next, followed by volume in the form of a striking black and ostrich feather skirts. Digital prints, tweeds, leathers, and jaw-dropping laser-cut fabrications rounded out the collection. Enjoy after the jump.
