Proenza Schouler RTW Spring 2014: Ahead Of The Game?

Since Proenza Shouler has basically been ahead of the game this whole time (take a look back at their RTW Fall 2012 collection for the current black and white trend), it makes sense that they want to shake things up a bit. The collection shown today during New York Fashion Week showcased pieces almost entirely in metallic, black, nude and tan—a very different color palette than we're used to seeing from the two designers. The shapes and cuts, though high fashion, didn't make for very flattering or wearable pieces, but that seems less noteworthy when considering every design looked so fresh and new.
