Shop the interactive Proenza Schouler Spring 2016 collection that explores the idea of unraveling, a sense of abandon – of cutting loose, of breaking things down.

Peeling away layers to find something pure. Something soulful. A kind of freedom and optimism was key. A return to traditional clothes making and a focus on craft, but in an undone and uncomplicated way.

“We were looking at bananas, things that peel away from the body,” said Lorenzo Hernandez. The designer and his partner, Jack McCollough, turned out an audacious collection for Spring, one that solidified their recent preoccupations with texture, decoration, and asymmetry, and produced some of the most knockout dresses.

Spain seemed to be a starting point, what with the black, white, and red color palette; the ruffles and the exposed shoulders; and the pom-poms that traced the edges of dresses and jackets in broderie anglaise.
