Stop the presses! Proenza is here. And it came with fishnet stockings, made for big big fishes. But that’s not the reason I’m dedicating this post to Proenza Schouler fall 2015 collection; it’s the laminated coat silhouettes, slashed knit dresses/tops reminding me of the guipure lace dresses of fall 2013 which I loved dearly, the genious use of persian lamb (collars, shoulder snoods) and borderline tacky craziness of the whole collection. Admittedly Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough are blowing hot and cold with their style line but as long as they remain this creative, I’m willing to go with the flow they surged.
Taking a break from all the wintery stuff; streetstyle in freezing New York, my personal style in even more freezing Montreal or fall 2015 collections that hint what we’ll be wearing next time it’s freezing, Mango just launched their Premium spring 2015 collection and it’s a minimalist dream. Oversized flowy cuts, fine fabrics such as linen, %100 cotton or light knit and clean styles with natural tones are a precursor of the easygoing spring we’ve been dreaming about. Better news? They are on sale right now and freakishly affordable considering the quality and substantiality.
Two reasons Opening Ceremony fall 2015 collection is awesome: 1) the copyright payment to Kodak may have helped our childhoods’ beloved company financially after the bankruptcy and 2) it has just about everything I want in my closet right now. Reminding me of Proenza Schouler pre-fall 2014 a little too much, yes, but a collection I still covet greatly can’t be interpreted enough. Any collection that helps the cause of preserving asymmetrical sweaters and culottes is worth supporting.
