less than 24 hours before Proenza Schouler’s spring 130 series debut, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez join Vogue100 for and Allie Michler Kopelman of Vogue for an exclusive viewing and intimate discussion. Just off the runway, a collection of looks worn by the likes of Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid arrived at the Barriere Fouquet Hotel in Tribeca, New York (Hotel Barriere Fouquet), for a lively cocktail reception, followed by a chat with the design duo about the making of their latest collection.

“This season, we’re thinking The life of the capital ‘L’,” Hernandez said with a laugh. “I think that’s the temperature of the moment, and it’s important to enjoy the happy moments.”


While perusing their favorite looks and accessories, guests enjoyed handcrafted cocktails prepared by Grand Marnier. Specifically curated for afternoon events, Grand Marnier offers twists on classic cocktails such as “Grand ” and “Grand & Ginger” ”, both are perfectly paired with mini Croque monsieurs and caramelized cherry tomatoes.

Longtime friend of the brand and director of our fashion initiatives, Kopelman moderated a discussion of Richard Serra and Alice Neel’s artwork in the stately Presidential Suite adorned with decor. From McCollough and Hernandez’s start at Parsons School of Design to reflecting on 20 years in the fashion industry, the conversations cover a range of topics. Of course, guests were also curious to know where the inspiration for the brand’s Beautiful Spring 2023 collection came from.

“I’ve really been influenced by my Cuban heritage and Latin energy this season,” Hernandez said with a smile. “All the sensuality, heat, drama and dazzling feel fit today.”

This season, the duo staged their show in the recently refurbished Academy of Fine Arts building The show, it has vast heights and depths. Venezuelan native and transgender musician Arca opened with a draped two-piece with fringe detailing. Before the show, dark blue lights illuminate the runway, while waterfalls are projected onto the walls.

“The concept of water was always in my head,” McCullough explained. “We got all the models’ hair wet, and even some of the silhouettes looked like they were dripping from them.”
