    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.

    What was extremely impressive was how leather was made into so many forms: Leather skirts billowed about like it was made from Kleenex; perforated, red leather looked as solid as a colander (but a whole lot more chic); patchworked, leather dresses almost resembled spongy neoprene; and, macrame, leather shirts looked as soft as yarn.

    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.
