Proenza Schouler Spring '14 Ad Campaign

Domesticity was a strong theme in Proenza Schouler’s artful Spring ’14 collection, so it makes sense that designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez chose their Massachusetts home as the setting for their new David Sims-lensed campaign, which breaks exclusively here. “We wanted to layer in a more private and personal tone to the campaign this season, which David has captured in a series of abstracted portraits and atmospheric landscapes shot on location,” the designers told Style.com. The brand’s Spring stars, Charlotte Lindvig and Harleth Kuusik, appear in Proenza’s cleverly constructed pleated wares, their hair blowing in the Northeastern wind. The leafy, rural backdrop only adds to the ethereal mood. Have a first look at Sims’ Spring snaps (above), and catch the debut of Proenza’s heady campaign film—a collaboration between Sims and Eddie the Wheel—below.

Ecco Domani Toasts NYFW’s New Guard

-------

Lindsay Degen

New York fashion week is fast approaching, and things just got a little more exciting for three young designers. For the past thirteen years, Ecco Domani Wines of Italy has awarded a trio of $25,000 grants to up-and-coming New York brands that embrace “good taste” and “everyday style,” and today it announced its 2014 winners: Timo Weiland (designed by Timo Weiland, Alan Eckstein, and Donna Kang), DEGEN by Lindsay Degen (who, pictured left, designed some clever body stockings and socks for the 2013 Victoria’s Secret runway), and Novis by Jordana Warmflash. While the labels are each very distinct—Weiland is known for his romantic-meets-downtown style, DEGEN specializes in playful handmade knitwear, and Novis favors bold colors and vintage-inspired silhouettes—Ecco Domani sees each one as a key player in the future of fashion. If past recipients are any indication (Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam, Altuzarra, and Alexander Wang are just a few), these on-the-rise designers have a very bright future ahead.

Juice, Fast: Orange Emerges as the Surprise Color Trend of the Moment

-------

Now Trending: OrangePantone may have named Radiant Orchid—a dusty magenta—its color of the year for 2014, but judging from the latest Pre-Fall lineups, designers beg to differ. The hue that’s cropped up time and time again is orange, from true, juicy shades to red-tinged bricks and rusts. Pastel outerwear was all the rage in 2013, but now Narciso Rodriguez, Joseph Altuzarra, and Gucci’s Frida Giannini have pumped things up with tailored coats in spicy shades. Proenza Schouler added fire to the tonal trend with wrap dresses and separates done in paprika-colored buttery suede. Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier did his part, too, showing a cozy Creamsicle sweater and complementary tangerine trousers (and on It redhead Magdalena Jasek, no less). Will menswear designers take up the torch for Fall ’14? Tune in this January to find out.

On the Fringe

-------

Fringe at GucciWith the holidays in full swing, we’re in a festive spirit here at Style.com. And when it comes to party looks, we’re feeling for fringe—the stuff was all over the Spring ’14 runways. Imagine twirling on the dance floor in the white leather jacket from Altuzarra, or shimmying about in Emilio Pucci’s glam poncho. Decorative tassels added an artisanal touch at Dries Van Noten, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang, while dense, carpetlike shag turned up at Proenza Schouler and 3.1 Phillip Lim. If a full-on fringy outfit is too much for you, get the look with a bohemian handbag similar to the ones we spotted at Céline, Valentino, and Gucci.

Here, a slideshow of our favorite fringed pieces.

Runway to Red Carpet: Fashion’s Award Shows and a Dressed-Up European Tour

-------

Jennifer LawrenceThis week was highlighted by a whirlwind European press tour for the cast of Hunger Games: Catching Fire, with photo calls and premieres in London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome, and Oslo. Leading lady Jennifer Lawrence donned a bevy of gorgeous gowns to promote the second film of the trilogy. And while she mostly stuck to her red-carpet favorite, Dior (she is the face of the brand, after all), the actress did throw in a sprinkling of Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, and Proenza Schouler. At Tuesday’s Berlin premiere, Lawrence wore a pale blue double-breasted coat-dress with printed guipure panels from Dior’s Resort ’14 range, which was a perfectly chic way to battle dropping temperatures (remember Leelee Sobieski’s black version last week? We sense a trend coming on). Elizabeth Banks also shined on the red carpet, choosing two shimmering Elie Saab Fall ’13 Couture dresses for the Berlin and Oslo premieres.

On Monday, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards and Glamour‘s Women of the Year Awards brought out a stylish crowd. Lily Collins walked the red carpet at the WOTY Awards in a silk flesh-toned gown with a plunging neckline from the Julien Macdonald Spring ’14 runway, while Lady Gaga paired a pearl-adorned jacket with a cargo-pocketed pencil skirt and tall, pearl-encrusted platform shoes from Thom Browne’s asylum-themed Spring ’14 lineup. At the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, Ciara wore her first Calvin Klein Collection ensemble, stepping out in a tweed wrap vest and cotton twill painter’s pants, with a jacket draped around her shoulders from the Spring ’14 runway. Considering the result, we have a feeling there’s more Calvin in the singer’s future.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.
