Here's the thing about the fall 2013 collection by Proenza Schouler: I would never ever ever wear any of it, because even if they made it in my size, the amorphous shapes and neutral tones would look turrrrrible on me, but. But! I can appreciate creating clothes that actually seem new and modern and fresh, innovative ideas about how to get dressed. A lot of collections reference the past — Russian opulence or British riding habits or Spanish flamenco skirts — and these clothes are very now. I don't know what they're made of or how they fasten or what you call them (asymmetrical buttonless cocoon coat???) but I respect that they're showing me shit I've never seen before. What do you think?

DISCUSSION

This is where the young-younger-youngest trend for runway models does an actual disservice to the presentation. I thing this collection would translate so much better on (rail thin, natch) women in their late 20s to early 40s. I think cerebral is a great way to describe the aesthetic, along with architectural and sophisticated. A few of the all-white ensembles are absolutely flawless. Some of the bulkier pieces are just strange but, as a whole, this collection sure is interesting.
