DESIGNER: Proenza Schouler by Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough

INSPIRATION: The Wild West, tribalism, cool gals

TOP LOOKS: Wool coat with waxed black shirt and wool jacquard pant; jacquard dresses and skirts; great black blazers

ACCESSORIES: Colour-blocked clutches; matte Art Deco-y necklaces; high strappy sandals

WHAT WE THOUGHT: Hernandez and McCollough wove a Santa Fe sensibility into their autumn collection. The jacquard prints - produced separately on silk, wool and velvet fabrics - were lurid and bright. Our favourite appeared on the slouchy wool trouser pants that will surely be a hit with the likes of audience member Sevigny. Less appealing were the colour-blocked double-faced wool dresses with zigzag hems in black-red or black-mustard. Those bore a Flintstonian quality that didn't quite belong at home on the range.
