Proenza Schouler, always a NYFW highlight, revamped downtown style by combining traditional Eastern (think Samurai) and futuristic elements. The presentation began with oversized leather jackets and ended with the sort of pretty dresses that have won Proenza such a loyal following.
Sheer tops and skirts, leather, and pleated trousers dominated Theyskens' collection for Theory. The palette was strictly black, grey and navy-glammed up with a little bit of ochre and fool's gold sparkle. Looks like we can keep our ankle-length sheer skirts in rotation for another season.
Phillip Lim stuck to what he knows best with monochrome blazers, unfussy and creased trousers. There were no big surprise pieces, but as we've come to rely on Lim's minimalist-chic to repopulate our workwear each season, we're glad he hasn't changed his signature style.
