Experiments, Play, and Glitter: Coronavirus-influenced New York Fashion Week is underway at the Fall / Winter 2022 show by Proenza Schouler and Christian Cowan.

Presented on Friday at Manhattan’s trendy East Village art gallery, the New York brand Pro Enza Schooler shaped and contrasted a fitted waist with a loose or slightly rounded skirt.

Designer Lazaro Hernandez says the aim is to exaggerate and juxtapose the various shapes in response to “the recent obsession with social media and showing everyone’s body.” Said.

Model Bella Hadid is dressed in buttoned sleeves, accented shoulders and a black velvet hooded top, giving it a Catwoman feel.

“Experiment and play are important, and probably more important than ever,” Proenza said of the collection.

The show had a nightclub feel and emphasized the British designer’s preference for glitter and charm.
