Michael Kors and Proenza Schouler take a walk on the wild side for spring 12
Proenza Schouler continued the trend for print and pattern with 1970s inspired flora patterns in orange, yellow and green mixed with earthy browns. The collection was also littered with stripes that began as safari inspired zebra prints, moving into more literal horizontal lines. Contrast was key, as prints sat next to block colour in panels. Shirts and blouses were buttoned to the neck and worn with short shorts or A line high-shine skirts.
Michael Kors ran with the safari theme with a collection full of slub greens, terracotta and animal prints. Swathes of fabric draped loosely around models, with the one shoulder and round neck most prevalent. Buttoned up safari dresses were met with loose-fit tie-dye trousers and nylon cargo pants. The relaxed silhouettes all added up to a casual collection punctuated with prints.
