A Film For Planned Parenthood of New York City

Proenza Schouler and Harley Weir have collaborated yet again and this time the result is a film for Planned Parenthood. With the current administration in the USA causing uproar daily, and with talks of defunding Planned Parenthood, this film shows a series of women discussing the importance of Planned Parenthood in their own lives.

Chloë Sevigny Never Goes out of Style

Recently, a newfound interest in Chloë Sevigny has peaked inside of me. I first came across Chloë years ago in Nylon Magazine and I thought she was edgy and beautiful but I knew there was more to her story. I never realized that Chloë had been commanding the scene since she was 19 and it made me a bit anxious to go out and make a name for myself. Always one step ahead of the rest, she embodies that “I don’t care what you think” attitude because she has the confidence to back it up. There are plenty of reasons why I’m fascinated by her: she dated and lived with director and artist Harmony Korine in the 90’s, served as a muse to my designer darlings Proenza Schouler, starred in some of my favourite films (Gummo, Big Brown Bunny, Kids), and the way she speaks her mind freely. People have wrote that Chloë’s mouth has gotten her into trouble but I think that can be attributed to her having to make quotes since she was nineteen. Going from the streets of Connecticut to cutting teeth with New Yorkers would be a huge jump for any teenager, but Chloë took it in stride, resulting in the “Ooh’s” and “Ahh’s” of the cool girl who’s level we’ll never be on.

Legs Are Not Doors

If there’s one thing that everyone knows about me, it’s that I am in a permanent love affair with Proenza Schouler. One of the things that I admire most about the duo is how they’re constantly evolving. As each season goes on, they release new collections that show no signs of slowing down and evident proof of how they’re continuously pushing themselves outside the box. Finding new ways to use materials, taking classics to the next level, and asking “what if?” then going forward with reckless abandon are only a few ways that Proenza Schouler are making waves in fashion.

For their Spring/Summer 2015 campaign, the designers collaborated with Harley Weir and Jen Brill for a fashion film starring some of their favourite faces. Chloë Sevigny, Liv Tyler, Binx Walton, Fei Fei Sun, and more come together in a monologue that has no discerning meaning yet is a great representation of a woman’s sensuality and sexuality.

What do you think of the film?

Proenza Schouler S/S 2015 Campaign

With the recent outpouring of Spring/Summer 2015 ad campaigns, I had been anxiously awaiting one in particular. We got Joan Didion for Céline, Kim and Kanye for Balmain, and Naomi and Jourdan for Burberry, so what other whimsy and wonder would come next? Cue my favourite design duo, Proenza Schouler. Re-enlisting model Julia Bergshoeff as the face of the campaign and shot by their resident photographer, David Sims, Bergshoeff shines in some of the best looks from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Arguably their best work yet (imo), this campaign reflects the growth and development of not only the Proenza Schouler girl but also the duo’s handiwork. Not one’s to shy away from the technical side of fashion, the boys have upped the anti with use of fabrics and tailoring, taking their creations to new heights. This campaign is only a taste of the greatness that lies ahead.

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2015

Proenza Schouler has been my favourite fashion brand for almost five years now. When I first heard of the duo of Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, I was intrigued by the company name alone. I found out that the name came from their mother’s maiden names and I immediately was a fan, but then came the clothes. Over the years I have watched Proenza Schouler transform and go above and beyond with their designs. Always pushing the envelope, they use print and texture in a way that is still sophisticated and conservative. This collection is my favourite of theirs that they have ever came out with. That is saying a lot because they have been in this business for over ten years, and created many phenomenal collections. The difference with their Pre-Fall 2015 collection for me is a sense that they are growing up. They created a wardrobe with staples that women can wear over and over again, or if you would be lucky enough, buy the whole collection and you could be Proenza clad all fall and winter long.  A job well done as always, boys.
