YAWN! Boring. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's Resort 2016 collection, Vaguely inspired by Hernandez's trip to his Homeland of Cuba, for their label Proenza Schouler was nothing short of a Snooze-Fest! It barely even registered as fashion, it was so basic and blase! Hernandez and McCollough were up to their usual arty tricks and vainly thinking that that makes their Fashion ideas interesting, but they usually are simply more Belaboured and Contrived!
Save a Pair of Grommet laden outfits, One a quite striking coat in Black, the other a Well Executed suit in Olive Khaki, the rest was unmemorable in the utmost unless one was trapped in a room for a few months time with it. One aside... There was an absolutely HORRENDOUS Fur abomination that was tantamount to Horrific! It was easily one of the mode Atrocious items I have borne witness to in Fashion in quite a while... BURN IT! BURN IT WITH FIRE!!!
Back to the matter at hand... Darlings of the industry that they are, the pair did not put their all into this collection and it suffered badly for it. Which raises an interesting thought... If they can't do even better than this when they inject mountainous amounts of effort into their work, what is the magic spark that will make the Proenza Schouler label, at least to my eyes, something more than overthought, Self-Indulgently Arty, Meaningless fashion? I don't know if they will ever be able to answer that key question!
