    The Proenza Schouler show always seems to be the last word during NYFW, setting the tone of trends for the onslaught of fashion coverage to come in the following months. For Proenza, it summarized this week's show in the following ways: mixed media, modern suiting, sporting uniforms, and bold, bright colors.

    The collection was loosely inspired by Tumblr and its mismatch of out-of-context photos, content, illustrations, and video with hidden surprises and discovered moments of joy, epiphany, and inspiration. Different from Tumblr, however, was that we experienced moments of joy, epiphany, and inspiration for each look throughout the entire show. Now that's a collection we'd heart.

And, while New York current events dominated read
