MANICURE MUSE: Proenza Schouler Spring ‘13
We can always rely on Jack and Lazaro to push the modern envelope, but leave it to them to design a collection that mirrors the information overload of The Digital Age. For Spring ‘13, Proenza Schouler looks to Tumblr for inspiration by featuring photo prints of random images found on the site. But it was the open patchwork and perforated leather in hi-def colors of electric acid green and red with black and white that stole the show for me. The recolored snakeskin and digital prints incorporated into the color blocking gives the collection a techno-feel. Call me “easy to please,” but somehow the beginning look of a show makes the biggest impact. I just can’t seem to shake how amazing this opening number is.

MANICURE MUSE: Proenza Schouler AW’12
Two words best describe Jack and Lazaro’s Fall ‘12 collection: oversized and angular. This season Proenza Schouler pushes silhouettes forward with scaled-up varsity jackets and kimono-wrapped skirts fully equipped with karate-inspired black belts. I’m pining over this look in particular which has an oriental yet all-American vibe.
To emulate this look, I used Brilliant White by CND, Glenn by Julep Nail Vernis and Vinyl by Orly.
To get these ladyfingers:
1. Paint your full nail white
2. Using a nail art brush, paint thin red vertical stripes across
3. Apply a black tip along the bottom of your nail
4. Paint a red stripe down the center
5. Using a nail art brush, paint a thinner black line in the center of the red
6. Using a dotter tool (or a bobby pin), apply black dots in between the thin red lines
7. Top it off with top coat
MANICURE MUSE: Proenza Schouler SP’12
I’m loving the retrospective approach to the collections this season- Prada, Fendi, and Proenza to name a few. The 1940s refined silhouettes have always caught my eye, though it’s probably not the decade I’d choose to teleport to (I’ve only seen Taking Woodstock 8 times, but who’s counting?).
Proenza Schouler has always been one of my favorite designers. Jack and Lazaro always get it right, and while the second half of the show stole my heart with the leaf printed midi dresses, this striped geographic look called Miss Ladyfinger’s name. Featured here: Mimosa (Chanel), Power Clutch (Essie), Vinyl (Orly), and White (Kiss Nail Art Paint).
