Proenza Schouler Exhibit to Open During Paris Fashion WeekJan 31, 2014 @ 10:14 am
During Paris Fashion Week next month, Le Bon Marché will unveil an exhibition on its first floor devoted to New York-based brand Proenza Schouler. Launched 11 years ago by Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, the brand became an instant hit with the fashion crowd and celebrities alike. The Paris exhibit will include a display of 80 of the duo’s favorite looks from their past collections, as well as a short documentary on the designers. The space, which rings in at 2,500 square feet, incorporates large, concrete-like blocks and benches with other industrial touches that nod to their Manhattan roots. The homage to all things Proenza Schouler won’t be confined to the store’s interiors—the showcase also extends to 10 windows facing the Rue de Sèvres that incorporates peek-a-boo glass, making the encased looks disappear and reappear every few seconds.
If seeing their covetable designs on display wasn’t enough, Proenza Schouler has put together a capsule collection to accompany the exhibit, which we are dying to get our hands on! Consisting of T-shirts, scarves, and sweaters, as well as a range of leather goods, including the brand’s hit PS1 satchels and PS1 shoulder bags in exclusive colors and prints, the sure-to-be hit line will retail for $170 to $1,915. Look for the exhibit to makes it debut February 22 at Le Bon Marché in Paris, where it will run until March 22.
