Proenza Schouler x M·A·C Cosmetics

Proenza Schouler x M·A·C Cosmetics = OMFG!!!

It’s Proenza Schouler day at I want – I got. I come bearing amazing news. Proenza Schouler and M·A·C Cosmetics are collaborating on a Spring Summer 2014 beauty collection. OMFG!!!!! This limited edition collection will have Ombre Face Powders, Lipsticks, Pro Longwear Eye Liners and Lip Pencils, Nail Lacquers, and a 129SE Powder Brush. The collection will be inspired by Jack and Lazaro’s previous collections. Look for the collection to hit stores and online everywhere April 2014. Quote from James Gager, Creative Director, Senior Vice President, M·A·C Cosmetics: “I have always respected Jack and Lazaro’s keen vision and point of view. We’ve worked together backstage creating beauty looks for their runway shows for many years and it has been fascinating to me watching them evolve. They have a very particular perspective on their makeup look each season. It has been a great experience collaborating with them to bring their beauty vision off the runway to our customers.” Quote from Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler: “Beauty has always played a huge role in …

Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2014 Video

Proenza Schouler can do no wrong! This Spring Summer 2014 collection is so very strong with every look hitting the right notes in my style playlist. Jack and Lazaro relayed their inspiration to Hamish Bowles at Vogue: looking at the ice-cool seventies interiors of architects and designers like Joe Colombo and Paul Rudolph, and the monumental organic furniture of the Brazilian Sérgio Rodrigues, and the North Californian J. B. Blunk. “Glass and chrome and white lacquer,” said McCollough of those vintage interiors that turned them on, “mixed up with a shaggy Moroccan rug.” “It’s minimal,” added Hernandez, “but there’s a warmth, an earthiness to it with all those green plants.”(source) The shoes, the shoes. I want the shoes so badly!! As always, I try not to make too many final judgements on a collection without seeing the video. The Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2014 fashion show is amazing! I’m so in love. I also took a look at the Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2014 trunk show on Moda Operandi. It’s just stunning. Proenza Schouler is …

Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 Ad Campaign

One of my favourite models working for some of my favourite designers. I love the Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2013 – 2014 Ad Campaign with my absolute favourite model, Sasha Pivovarova. There is a campaign video too!! Sasha is looking awesome and I’m glad she’s returned to the fashion world. Photographer: David Sims Model: Sasha Pivovarova images:

Proenza Schouler Resort 2013

Ahh, Proenza Schouler, a brand I could dress head to toe in and be completely satisfied. If only I had the money to make that a reality. The Proenza Schouler Resort 2013 collection isn’t about gimmick and features fresh, wearable shapes and colours. The resort collection introduces a new handbag to the PS line. The PS13 is a new purse that can be carried by hand or using a chunky shoulder strap. I’m loving the tweets with neon accents and the pant shapes in this collection. images:

Proenza Schouler Resort 2012

Proenza Schouler’s Resort 2012 collection sees the boys moving away from Navajo blankets inspirations.  They’ve thrown in patchwork, marble prints and a 70s colour palette.  Amazingly it works with typical Proenza flare. I can’t wait to see the complete lineup of accessories. The handbags and shoes are looking pretty good from these shots. images:

Proenza Schouler at The Room

The Proenza Schouler duo of Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough came to Toronto for very short day trip and The Room celebrated their arrival. Unlike the Anna Dello Russo party, this was a small affair. It was a welcome change from the madness of Anna. I brought a long time blogging friend Zoë Hong with me. She’s a designer from San Fransisco that happened to be vacationing in Toronto for the weekend. Her Asymmetrical black leather corselet belt made my I want list. I still think about it. It was hilarious that Zoë visits Toronto and Danielle isn’t in the country.  Zoë did tell me stories of her adventures with Danielle in NYC to fill the void. It was pretty surprising that Jennifer Campbell of Flare recognized Zoë from the Internet. Oh, old school fash blogging days. Some media got interview time with Jack and Lazaro at the beginning of the event. I met them, super quickly made small talk and then photos. It’s like a factory floor when all the guests want to meet the guests. The guys were really …

Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2011 – 2012

It was crazy print time again at Proenza Schouler for fall winter 2011 – 2012 collection. Their influence came in the form of Native American blankets that were picked up on a road trip from Santa Fe to Wyoming. I liked this collection for many of the same reasons I like all Proenza Schouler collections. It was bright and loud. They aren’t afraid of prints and place them at the forefront of their designs. See the entire Proenza Schouler fall winter 2011 – 2012 fashion show. They got some great handbag additions for fall winter 2011 – 2012 I’m not a velvet fan, so the series of velvet pieces didn’t appeal to me. The last two dresses kept me from writing that whole section of the collection off. images:

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2011

I’m dying over the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2011 collection. I want everything that has a print on it. Surprisingly the only things I dislike in this collection is the solid colour pieces. I was told that the ikat print would be coming in spring and I’ve seen many collections make use of it. Seems this print will be rolling into fall too. I love the chunky sweaters and the awkward length shorts.  It’s true, this is a collection for people on the taller side and I’m just on the cusp of that allows me to participate.  Thank you platforms. images:

i want: Graffiti-print high-waisted jeans by Proenza Schouler x JBrand

Graffiti-print high-waisted jeans by Proenza Schouler x JBrand The collaboration of Proenza Schouler and JBrand. The denim is high waisted and the print is hand painted on. They come in white on black, blue on black and black on black. I like the blue on black the best. If you are looking to do a DIY recreation, check out roenza Schouler x JBrand are available on, net-a-porter and images:,

Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2011

Proenza Schouler used a lot of shibori techniques in the Spring Summer 2011 collection. Shibori is several methods of dyeing cloth to create a pattern by binding, stitching, folding, twisting, compressing it, or capping the fabric. “We wanted it to be a little more polished,” Jack McCollough said backstage, before Lazaro Hernandez jumped in: “So we took all these feminine codes—the embroideries, the flowers—and mixed them up in our own way. We wanted to do something without any obvious references.”(Source). I was very happy to see that Proenza Schouler was using neon this spring summer 2011 season.  The prints are beautiful. You’ll want to check out Tommy Ton’s behind the scenes at Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2011 photo post on Jak & Jil. He’s got some really great shots.

Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2010 – 2011 Ad Campaign

I liked the Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2010 collection. I didn’t care much for the shoes and I don’t care much for the ad campaign. The girls are too thin and it’s distracting. The campaign video is much better. It has some good lingering shots of the clothing. EDIT: Boo they took the video down. However you can view it online at images:

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2010 Accessories

Twitter was all a flutter over the newly released Proenza Schouler Pre Fall 2010 Accessories. I was wondering what all the hubbub was about and then I saw the collection. I’m not usually one to like fur on shoes but I like the restraint used with the first two shoes pictured. It does seem a little weird to be selling fur lined sandals for pre-fall though. The shoes are really inventive and I’m loving the green creeper/Dr. Martens influenced shoe.  The handbags are to die for.  Totally classic and ladylike. images:

Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear - Fall 2010

Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear – Fall 2010

The Proenza Schouler fall 2010 show was fun. It had the bumping runway music and I loved the clothing. It was very preppy and collegiate in a way. The graffiti print denim, a collaboration with J Brand, gave the preppy a bit of an edge. The shoes however were beyond stupid and ugly. I wondering why everyone walked so funny during the show. It’s because of these Completely, totally, completely ugly! images:

Fashion Show Videos Spring 2009

Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2009 Very pretty and wearable collection, however it didn’t grab me like Fall Winter 2008. Proenza Schouler Spring 2009 Didn’t change my mind about the collection too much, but props for using Skinny Puppy Alexander Wang Spring 2009 Everyone was peeing themselves over this collection in NYC Christian Dior Spring 2009 Alessandro Dell’Acqua Spring 2009 I didn’t do a dedicated post to this collection but I quite liked it. Gianfranco Ferre Spring 2009 Very luxurious clothing, as always. Viktor & Rolf Spring 2009 I include this only because the presentation is great. I really like the side views. The clothing on the other hand….

Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear – Resort 2009

It’s weird. I’m really loving some of the looks for Resort that I probably shouldn’t. I can’t explain what draws me to these looks and I can’t believe I like the jumpsuit. The collar on this jacket is great. Some looks I just don’t get though, like this one via the Fashion Spot – Proenza Schouler Resort 2009 images:
