Consider the Fall 2009 Proenza Schouler collection the downtown girl’s guide to dressing. The collection was truly back to basics for them with a dark palette with a few jewel tones thrown in for good measure. The crushed velvet pieces with jagged sheer panels were my favorite pieces in the collection, and I know I will crave the wool & tweed jackets and coats come fall. The collection was well-tailored and incredibly wearable which is exactly the kind of thing a young designing duo needs to produce in a dark economy.
