A Closer Look

Often we tend to overstep details on the runway, instead focusing our concentration on trends and fabric. Those few seconds we have to see the looks are not spent analyzing the small intricacies, rather we save those for later to be viewed on a computer screen.  Those small slits and slashes, the subtle weaving patterns, the unexpected buttons, and the intricate lace all tie in to complete signature looks, and most of those patters and details are significant when we try to weave out fakes. I didn't take a close look at the Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 collection, and I ended up missing a lot of details that I would have otherwise oogled over. Here is my favorite collection from NYFW up close.
