It is no surprise that I find the new Proenza Schouler F/W 2011 collection absolutely amazing.  The design duo of Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez consistently turns out creative, yet totally wearable looks that are cool through and through.  For this collection they looked to Santa Fe, New Mexico for inspiration.  What came down the runway were pixelate prints of Native American blankets on crew neck sweaters, bias-cut dresses, and tapered trousers.  I adore the way these prints prance on pieces that are both slouchy and structured.  The silhouettes featured in PZ collections always fill me with desire.  I love the slouch of the pants and way the hems of the shirts peeked out above the pants and skirts (and some of the T-shirts were leather, so naturally I was smitten).  These prints had a vibrancy that is rare in fall fashion.  The colors made the looks fun and stood out in a season usually dominated by hues of black, brown, and gray.  Plus the blazers and jackets looked impeccably well (but quirkily) cut.  This was definitely one of my favorite collections to come out of New York this season.  Kinda makes me look forward to next fall (kinda).
