When a little birdie told us that Proenza Schouler had unveiled its fall ’13 campaign, we were met with goose bumps — in more than one way. With models strutting some Proenza plumage (and paired with coordinating winged ones), the scheme explores the idea of air, purposing atmosphere and light to evoke an ephemeral-yet-brooding mood.

As we all know, birds of a feather flock together, so in hopes of adopting Proenza’s unmatched decorum, we’ll definitely be loading up on heaver textiles the coming season.
