Those proportions looked fresh and right. But proportions become a trickier proposition when you get to bandage dressing. Only the likes of front-row celeb Victoria Beckham could pull off the unforgiving pink-and-orange tube skirt. Still, the rest of Proenza's fans will probably be happy with the bra tops made from the stretchy stuff, and they'll love the racer-back tanks in swatches of Ellsworth Kelly stripes. This collection may not have been as tight as last season's, or as rich, but there was more than enough evidence that these designers are still on their game.
