They  wanted something young and fresh, so the guys from Proenza Schouler looked to surfing and skating, the things they grew up on. They took the notion of track jackets wrapped around waists and built those elements right into tank dresses and shirtdresses, and they teamed a pair of color-blocked track pants with a great tailored jacket for a sporty-chic effect. It’s the sort of nonchalant look a lot of designers are looking for,  and these guys nailed it perfectly.  For evening, the silhouette was short, short, short. A few of the cocktail numbers featured the bra-cup bodies the duo has made their signature, mixed with tiers of micro ruffles. Other dresses floated away from the body.  The models wore wedge-heel woven sandals as colorful as the clothes.
