Their collections always have such a dynamic that is so inspirational and unique.

I have always had a connection with New York based fashion designers such as TOME, Public School and Thakoon. Their collections always have such a dynamic that is so inspirational and unique. One of the first New York based designers that I noticed were Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez designers and founders of Proenza Schouler (/prˌɛnzə ˈsklər/). I first took notice of this brilliant fashion label, ironically, at Nordstrom. That is where I met the iconic Proenza Schouler PS1, I was immediately in love.  I have a thing for going into high-end department stores and just browsing through their handbags, shoes, clothes and admiring the quality and beauty. I prefer department stores because sales associates are always kind and don't give you the look, as if they're watching you to make sure you're not going to run out of the store with that $5,500 Chanel flap in lambskin and gold hardware.

Spanish Retreat is the first thing that came to my mind as I quickly swiped through the exquisite Spring collection. Of course being in class did not stop me from viewing the collection. One important part of the collection are the neutrals that were used. Blacks, whites, gray, reds are important because they're neutral, in a client point of view, neutrals are timeless and always hold their value. It's really about what you buy. The boys were able to translate this this just beautifully while still keeping their uptown NY vibe. The "off the shoulder" trend continued, while adding a twist, no pun intended.
