New York Fashion Week: Proenza Schouler's street art vibe


The urban tribal vibe we saw at Proenza Schouler for spring evolved into an street art vibe for fall, thanks to a new collaboration between designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Fernandez and J Brand jeans.

These are not designer jeans for the wallflower, but rather exaggerated high-waist styles in a graphic black- and-white splattery graffiti print, which were worn on the runway with chunky sweaters and classic boiled wool peacoats.

The jeans are made of 11-ounce Japanese stretch denim, according to a news release, and are both printed and hand-painted to add texture. In other words, don't expect them to be cheap.

They will be available in specialty stores mid-July.

Elsewhere on the Proenza runway, the artsy theme continued with dark blue leather dresses that had a collagey look, cropped jackets worn over short skirts in a blurred jacquard check that was a new take on plaid.

Short silk faille dresses with bubble skirts also looked modern worn over silk turtleneck sweaters.

Wow, the zombie and vampire look are everywhere.

In the name of God! Which is more hideous? The zombie faces of the models or the utter silliness of the clothes? You will NEVER see anyone wear any of this stuff in public. This whole thing is the modern day version of circus clowns. Fashion time with Bonzo! What a bloody waste of time and money.

and he would not wear this.

hmmmmmm, ew =P

I absolutely agree with Neil.
"They will be available in specialty stores mid-July." ? Why would anyone want to be seen in public wearing those things? If I was forced to buy those, I would make some MAJOR adjustments to those hideous things u call CLOTHES or OUTFITS. And those models, what kind of look are they going for? Goth/Emo looks or bored to death looks? In my opinion, they are much more beautiful with a smile on their face, and better-looking clothing. You have turned pretty women into utterly disappointing women with those clothes you have put on them. Utterly disappointing.

GOOD GOD! LOOK WHAT HAS BECOME OF FASHION. Beyonce would slap you if she saw this !
