If SS14 saw the Proenza Schouler boys conjure tough rose-gold breastplates and sinuous metallic dresses, their AW14 collection is all hot colours, distorted Pollock prints and sculptural silhouettes. Little wonder that their new Marie Chaix-styled campaign strives to capture that same electric sunset glow, setting into motion the energy, action, and color explored on the runway.
In this exclusive image (above), photographer David Sims catches Netherlands-born rising star Julia Bergshoeff (DNA) in the middle of shooting a sideways glance, the viewfinder's perspective tipping to catch her eyes. Maybe it's suggesting we're all tilting at windmills to enter Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's world – but to be honest, theirs is the kind of slant we'd like to have on life.
In an April interview with Dazed, Hernandez explains the process behind their perspective-altering collections: "I don’t know how to explain, just that we don’t overthink it. We’re like, ‘Oh, I need a colour for this thing,’ and a car goes by with a great colour on it and we’re like, ‘Oh, that’s a great colour.’ Just like that, we’re picking up information from living, and it feels contemporary somehow."
