We met with Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez for a quick interview backstage after their show and we can already assure you that the designers' Parisian escape is certainly not their last.: We've been spending a little more time in Paris lately, as we've launched our new fragrance here.The dress code, “On the Fringe,” conveniently coincided with honorees Jack Mc Collough and **Lazaro Hernandez’**s spring 2015 Proenza Schouler collection which was nothing if not full of fringe benefits.Naturally, a handful of the chicest guests—and cochairs—donned just that, with fringe-y frocks hugging the figures of Liv Tyler, Lauren Santo Domingo, Rachel Feinstein, and Cindy Sherman.From the ICA website: Designers Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez met while studying at the Parsons School of Design in New York and launched their distinctive clothing brand Proenza Schouler shortly thereafter.Notable for an intriguing and inventive use of fabric, their designs are inspired by influences ranging from the Himalayan region of Nepal; the coy urban youth culture of New York; and artists Cy Twombly, Mark Rothko, and Gerhard Richter.
Is it a sign of their willingness to "upgrade" their very sophisticated ready-to-wear brand, which has many similarities to Couture anyway? It's a bit of both, if you ask us, but let's hear what the prominent duo has to say.
Art Production Fund cofounder Doreen Remen paired black fringed gloves with her knit dress by the designers.
“It’s my tacky addition to the Proenza,” she confided of the gloves.
Pioneers of style and craft since they launched their brand 15 years ago, the fathers of the 10-year-old perennial “It Bag” known as PS1, will chat with journalist Alina Cho about why they showed in Paris, how they manage their personal and professional relationship, and what inspires their collections.
Now in its fourth season, The Atelier with Alina Cho has featured fashion visionaries such as Alber Elbaz, Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Olivier Rousteing, Donatella Versace, Alexander Wang, and Anna Wintour in conversations that explore the intersection of fashion and art along with a range of personal topics.
