Proenza Schouler Spring/Summer 2023 – New York Fashion Week

September 13, 2022

Opening New York Fashion Week, creative directors Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez made water a central element of their Spring/Summer 2023 collection for Proenza Schouler.

They projected dramatic waterfalls onto the four walls of the Hall des Lumières in New York, creating a scene so sensual you could almost smell the humidity.

The show notes described the collection as “an unabashed cacophony of spirit, of joy, of the sensual and tactile qualities that bring pleasure to life”, and described “water as a symbol of life that floods the narrative and intersects with the designers’ deep-rooted personal histories”.

The models, with slicked-back hair and sweat-dappled bare midriffs, strutted out in fern-green fishnet knits adorned with metallic fringes, suits covered in gold-fringed mini medallions, ruffled dance skirts, crochet-knit bikini tops and sheer tube skirts.

These pieces were made to move on the dancefloor all night.

We’re just talking about the idea of energy, of joy, of sensuality; these things that sometimes we feel are lost in our lives, to be honest, and we’re trying to find a way to get them back”, McCollough said.
