Proenza Schouler creative directors Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez focused on American handcraft in their fall 2018 collection. Inspired by the textile works of Paris-based American artist Sheila Hicks, the duo's artisanal tie-dyed velvet, leather macramé cording, and crochet knits were executed with a characteristically cool, New York perspective. In the label's fall 2018 campaign, supermodel Amber Valletta wears these texturally-rich pieces against a surreal landscape.
Photographed by Zoe Ghertner and styled by Vogue editor Camilla Nickerson, the images portray Valletta as a traveler passing through America's dreamy countryside. The contrast of imposing transmission towers and roses in full bloom complement the fresh-faced model's wistful expressions and nonchalant elegance.
