blasblog: proenza schouler’s water works


Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez had a lot to celebrate last night at the Beatrice Inn, where they hosted their own official after-party (Kirsten Dunst and Kelly Klein were among their well-wishers). Not only did they just put on another much talked-about collection, but as Hernandez revealed, they were also congratulating themselves on surviving their own Chinatown flood just days before. The Proenza Schouler studio occupies the entire sixth floor of an old building on Walker Street. The seventh is the top floor and gets lots of natural light, so when the occupants moved out, the duo decided to move up there to work on the Spring collection. “While we were fitting Natasha Poly two days ago, I felt a little drop of something wet hit my face,” Hernandez remembers. “And then, Wham! Just like that, the skylight fell in with 1,000 gallons of water or something.” The building’s floors are warped, so the water pooled in a corner, and since nearly everything was on racks at the time, it wasn’t like the entire collection was severely damaged. But the designers had to reschedule the rest of the day’s fittings to the day before the show, move everything, sedate themselves, and devise a new alterations system. “I knew we wouldn’t be sleeping in for weeks,” McCollough said. “But that whole water tower thing didn’t help.”
