Something to marvel about in the past with Proenza Schouler is the way Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez skillfully bring together disparate or difficult materials (like last fall’s rounded nubby cocoon-like coats), but the collection they showed for Spring/Summer 2016 was all about ease, without sacrificing the duo’s meticulous obsession for detail. Cuba was a starting point, so a Latin flair trickled down into the pompom details and palette, spiked with red. But the approach to deconstructing the clothes with cut-outs-in eyelet dresses, body-wrapping knits, and lightweight feather overlays, made everything all the more sexy and wearable.
