Next month, landmark Paris specialty store Le Bon Marché is to unveil an exhibition on its main floor devoted to Proenza Schouler, the New York-based brand that launched 11 years ago by Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough.
Spanning about 2,500 square feet, the exhibit includes a display of 80 of the duo’s favorite looks, plus a short documentary showing their personal side, says WWD. The installation incorporates large, concrete-like blocks and benches, industrial touches that wink to their store architecture and Manhattan roots.
The design duo have also put together a capsule collection of T-shirts, scarves and striped sweaters, as well as a range of leather goods, including the brand’s hit PS1 satchels and PS1 shoulder bags in exclusive colors and prints. Retail prices range from about $170 to $1,915.
The showcase opens February 22nd and runs through March 22nd, and includes ten windows on the Rue de Sèvres incorporating a special glass that makes clothes disappear and reappear every few seconds.
