Proenza Schouler borrows some Cuban appeal on current Spring collection

One of fashion’s most famous brands is once again on point during the presentation of their 2016 Spring collection. The romanticism and femininity that’s a trademark of the Latina style is very much evident as their collection is unfolded while each piece goes down the runway.

Blame the vacation in Cuba for this festive collection. See the tangible vitality of Cuba as each piece is injected with the Cuban trademarks like of lace, ruffles and sexy peeking shoulders. Let us not forget the explosion of red and the domination of white and black as the core hues of the collection.

There is a celebration of distinct female assets as there are subtle exposures of skin. Aside from some collarbone exposure, there will also be hipbone and leg revelation that is sexy and classy at the same time. The collection is somewhat different from their usual vague presentation, as this current one is as direct and as plain as it can get.

The layering found on most pieces is also one of the highlights of the collection. Unravelling the clothes, peeling away layers as defined, get the feel of a muted flirty aura that attracts the taste of the majority of women from different corners of the world.

Two heads are behind this exciting brand. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez’s creativity are the two driving forces behind Proenza Schouler, earning positive attention for every collection they release. Hearing the brand’s name for the first time would make you wonder about the nationality of its creator.

However the rationale behind it lays in the each designers’ family name. Proenza was Hernandez’s mother’s maiden name while Shouler was McCollough’s. The clothing line was first established in 2002 and has earned citations and awards since then, including CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award in 2007 and 2011. Most of their collections are sold in Barneys, Colette and Joyce.
