A road trip out West turned into the main inspiration for Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez’s pre-fall collection at Proenza Schouler, one that proved to be their most developed pre-collection so far. They reinterpreted classic Guatemalan and Peruvian ikat prints into a modern, edgy lineup, much of which included longer, leaner silhouettes. The designers worked with spiral cutting techniques, creating asymmetric panels that showed movement and ease, as well as tweeds cut on the bias for a reinventive take on the classic. The two also explored knitwear this season, developing their own yarns for chunky sweaters and robelike cardigans with oversize collars, as well as coats and even shorts.
