Never Judge A Look By Its Cover

Particularly ones à la the Proenza Schouler FW 13 runway. If there's anything I love more than good details, it's a good backside and Jack and Laz really outdid themselves with these ones. Pleasantly unexpected open backs on all the belted and simple dress silhouettes might not be the warmest come next winter, but summon the services of a good coat and all will be more than well. You've got lots of options, remember?

Like the unexpectedly backless ensembles, the design duo turned to modern minimalism and thus gave us a new chapter in the PS story. Black, white and grey for good measure render it most elemental while expert and precise cuts yielded for nothing short of basic cum luxurious pieces -- all while the integrity of the brand's edge remained intact. Namely, with those leather trousers. Swoon and catch me?  After all, it does look a lot like we're harking back to an era of black and white cinema. 

And in much in the style of a 1950's leading lady, kitten and other bow-adorned heels also prove to be a bit of departure from the brand's previously louder footwear but works nothing short of gracefully with the rest of the collection. 

If there's any one overarching trend to take away from the NYFW runways, thus far, it's simplicity rules
