State of Equilibrium - Proenza Schouler S/S 2014

For Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez' Spring/Summer 2014 presentation, casting director Ashley Brokaw pulled out all the stops with a perfectly balanced line-up of iconic models, newly minted girls of the moment, and red hot newcomers. Perhaps the most satisfying element of Proenza Schouler's battalion of beauties was the element of surprise and an original cast based on innovation rather than a mere copycat of other Spring/Summer 2014 casting trends. Opening and closing proceedings were newcomers Charlotte Lindvig and Emma Champtaloup who hail respectively from Denmark and New Zealand. Also receiving Brokaw's stern nod of approval were Charlotte Kuusik, Alexandra Elisabeth, Emily Astrup, Kelsey Owens, Madison Leyes, Nastya Sten, Sabrina Ioffreda, and Anna Ewers. Fashion's current obsessions Malaika Firth, Irene Hiemstra, Fei Fei Sun, Amanda Murphy, Chiharu Okunugi, Grace Mahary, and Edie Campbell ensured the show maintained it's relevance amongst the sea of stunning new faces. Returning to the runway were a collective of late nineties Supers including South African Georgina Grenville, IMA's perennial favourite Liya Kebede, Kirsty Hume, and the gorgeous Liisa Winkler. Brokaw's remarkable cast selection had it all; exclusive newcomers with true distinguishing star quality, a smattering of faces from the past, present, and future, and a diverse representation of ethnic groups, making for a show which was impossible to take one's eyes off from start to finish.
