Proenza Schouler

Jack McCollough (b. Tokyo, 1978)
Lazaro Hernandez (b. Miami, 1978)

Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler have been given the burdensome title of the ‘great hope’ of American fashion. While studying at the highly regarded Parsons School of Design in New York, they quickly recognized a common sensibility and overnight (in 2002) became formidable players in the international fashion arena.

Proenza Schouler, a combination of their mothers’ maiden names, was instantaneously noticed and acclaimed by the International Press, and while still in school, their senior collection was bought by the prestigious Barneys New York Stores around the globe shortly followed.

Proenza Schouler now leads the way in a new generation of American design—a clever mix of subtle urban elegance and the opulence of accurate, in-the-moment design, tinted by a youthful fearlessness; a vision that defines the trends of tomorrow.

Proenza Schouler re-imagines their work in fashion for the modern interior. A mix of strong color balanced by clean neutrals and novel textures defines this Knoll Luxe collection.
