Proenza Schouler to Add Swimwear
Proenza Schouler has signed a deal to design swimwear. Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have entered a licensing partnership with Swimwear Anywhere, which will also distribute the line. Twenty styles will debut today at resort previews. So far, the line includes bikinis and many styles of swimsuits, with some in tomboyish silhouettes. The swimwear takes inspiration from Proenza Schouler’s runway collections and some give a nod to a few of the designer’s archival prints. “We have wanted to do a swimwear collection for a while. The idea of doing swimwear was a natural evolution for us,” the designers said.
