Proenza Schouler Spring 2012 RTW

With 40’s-Style referenced throughout the show, Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2012 RTW Collection was odd mix of muted fabrics that seem to lack directions and wit.  With these shiny/glossy textures, that were one step away from fabulous kitsch.  With bright bold colors/stripes this “Shiny Escape” gave the show some much needed energy, and designs that seemed to exude more vibrancy and life.
