RESTRAINT VS FREEDOM


The collection was a very conceptual play between notions of control and release or between constraint and freedom, to give an idea of this extreme contrast. This is exactly the same way how to describe the silhouette of this latest work by the duo of Proenza Schouler. There were two. First was emphasized by more soft tailoring, with pieces like long, shapeliness jackets with an asymmetric closure worn over fluid, wide pants,  to give that free-feeling, while the second, characterized by more tailored-pieces, hour-glass shapes and everything  emphasized with the laced, string-tight effect, to give that in-control, restraint feeling. Maybe a following question (can) pop-up here: up to where the fashion leaves you that freedom to be, dress as you want and from where becomes restriction? I guess I should rephrase that: up to where we feel free and we are ourselves, also in terms of dressing and from where we allow fashion to dictate us? The answer stays in us, as the solution.
