The print on this shift dress is an aerial view pulled from Google Earth! Proenza Schouler's Jack and Lazaro work just around the corner from OCNY in Soho, but they travel almost as much as we do. Last year, their fall palette and Navajo patterns were inspired by a road trip through New Mexico, and this year, their pre-Fall collection riffs on a trek they took through the Himalayas.
The patterned silk of the A-line skirt also feels like a mountain range in miniature, with a 3-D, crinkled surface. At the side, a velcro closure seems fittingly like a detail from climbing getup. Only the Proenza guys could make outdoor kit this good: their varsity jacket comes streamlined in a sporty, structured cut, the pants come fitted, and geometric patterned knits take Fair Isle next level.
