Proenza Schouler has caught my eye with their use of prints, minimal color, and boxy shapes for women.
I typically am not a fan of boxy shapes, but Proenza Schouler creates beautiful clothing from the simple shape as they use it as a canvas to layer gorgeous fabrics and details.
Proenza Schouler is a womenswear line based in New York.
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's designs are inspired by contemporary art and youth culture but refined by impecable tailoring.
The brand has expanded into shoes and handbags within the last few years.
Proenza Schouler is a fairly young brand being founded in 2002.
Yet they have already taken huge steps in the fashion industry by winning two CFDA Awards in 2004 and 2007, just a short time after launching.
Proenza Schouler fashions can been found in over 100 exclusive retailers.
You can find some for yourself at Bergdorf Goodman.

Such inspiring, fun combinations!
Don't you love the bright pop of color from the bags paired with a black and white outfit?
I love their use of trims and pockets!
I'll have to try to utilize a few of these ideas into my own sewing projects and outfits!
