The blitz of graphic patterns and brash colors of Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough’s fall collection reverberated through resort but at a lower decibel. As Hernandez pointed out, the silhouettes in the pre-collections tend to be more “democratic,” thus sporty draped tanks and the designers’ version of sweatpants in knit. He noted Ellsworth Kelly’s influence on some of the colorblocking, and, having just launched swimwear, Hernandez called the lineup “beachy and athletic,” perhaps more in theory than in practice. This was not a casual collection. Fabrics, such as with a hand-beaded tunic and wrap dress in an interesting lasered leather technique, were highly developed. And for the Proenza career woman, there were silk georgette blouses and drop-waist pleated skirts in prints inspired by Clyfford Still paintings.
