LVMH is waiting in the wings. The parent company to Louis Vuitton, Celine, Givenchy and Dior is interested in purchasing a minority stake in the House of Proenza Schouler.
In my opinion, Proenza Schouler is one of the top three most forward American designers. For spring summer 2015, Proenza presented their take on the classic American sportswear. It was all based on the Polo, the Parka and the Pleated skirt. Their version was that and then some. Polos were hand made in Leather, Parkas were color blocked in leather and pleated skirts were done in the most glorious prints and in fringe. If LVMH captures a stake in Proenza Schouler they absolutely should show in Paris, with the big boys.
Proenza Schouler is available at
Ikram and Barneys New York.
