I was initially a little bit disappointed with Proenza Schouler's latest offering. I guess that's what happens when a label consistently produces unique and streamlined themes each season. There didn't seem to be the same commitment to a particularly recognisable theme. The best I can draw from it was a common theme of retro prints and colours. There was less of the fluoro and textural features we have come to love, but hey, who wants the same all of the time. Given a couple of days to reflect and come back, I can see the value in what the boys have done with this collection. Well done. The shoes and accessories will continue to be a big hit with the fashion savvy.
