Summary: Something about Proenza Schouler‘s show seamed vaugly familiar. That’s because I felt like I lived these style in the late 70’s into the early 80’s…the last days of disco. Oddly, I liked the interpretation more than the actual time (I was young, but I remember). For Spring, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez got Dynasty tough. Think of Joan Collins (aka Alexis Carrington) wielding her stealth shoulder pads and belted waists and there you have it. Remember parachute pants? The duo brought them back along with jumpsuits, dolman sleeves (which I have always secretly loved) and disco ball mirrored glitzy gowns. I even loved the severely side-parted hair (think Jerry Hall in her Jagger days)!  Goodbye seventies. Hello spring!
