2010 Spring New York Fashion Week: Proenza Schouler

A self-proclaimed mermaid, I drowned in Proenza Schouler's aquatic chic Spring collection. It wasn't evident right away — leather and bondage shirt dresses and jackets opened. And then, like a flurry of fish, tiered and ruffled frocks in teals, turquoise, and acid green stole the scene. Seaweed sequins in purple and emerald, and even some feathers, trimmed asymmetrical hems. Then the prints — tie dye, stone wash, water ripples, mana ray — on frilly skirts and perfect shifts. Dramatic wedges were scuba fantastic, sunnies were bold and reflective, bags were eclectic. The babydoll was reinvented in a strappy, sassy bralette style. Washed up, sometimes green, beachy hair, completed the marine melody. Lastly, three Traina's were in attendance — longtime PS supporters. Soak, it, up.
