We haven't been bowled over by New York Fashion Week this season (which you can probably tell by the relative lack of posts compared to previous years) but as the week comes to a close, we are encouraged by Proenza Schouler's offering which showed some beautifully rendered clothes.  

Inspired by the designers' trip to Cuba from where Lazaro Hernandez’s family hails, the very personal collection symbolised an unravelling or peeling away of layers which was evident in the draping of several of the pieces to expose shoulders and and in some cases the hipbone.  The ruffled and frilled dresses also evoked a latin feel as did the high-waisted trousers when paired with an off-the-shoulder top.  And can we say how much we love the shoes?  With a metallic, mid-height heel they provided the perfect compliment for the longer-length skirts and cropped trousers.
