I thought for a different muse combination I would look at a designer I had never heard of before: Proenza Schouler. That is to say the design duo Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, who seem to have paired up with the Hollywood star Kate Boswoth.
Since the two guys partnered on their graduation project in 1999 all has gone well and their modern, luxury label has been in business since 2002, presented with the CFDA’s Perry Ellis Award for new talent in 2003. The partner’s designs showcase simple silhouettes with a resemblance to the cheeky sixties and a comparable modernism to Courrèges or Paco Rabanne.
Kate Bosworth often wears Proenza Schouler’s designs and attends big fashion calendar events with the pair as well. Not only does Kate appear to love their clothes but loves their company as well; a perfect match for a muse combination, I think.
Kate stands side by side with the duo, in what looks a gorgeous shift dress; simple with delicate decoration round the edges, they look so good together. A perfect advert for the designers clothes.
