Proenza Schouler and other Fashion Week highlights from Wednesday

Proenza Schouler - Runway - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Art on the runway: Proenza Schouler
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez extended fashion’s love affair with clashing abstract prints through a series of hyper-graphic patterns that are so mesmerizing, they make you feel like you’re staring into a fire. Think: a computerized, pixelated version of Jackson Pollock. Rounded, sculptural shapes on coats, suits and dresses kept the arty feeling going throughout the collection. — Kenya Hunt
Anna Sui - Runway - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Chinoiserie and then some at Anna Sui
Sui’s print-happy collection kicked off with looks in bold red and black. Images of old Chinese cityscapes and dragon prints — the designer drew inspiration from Twenties-era movie star Anna May Wong, the first Chinese-American to cross over — adorned some of her psychedelic, layered looks, which ranged from flowy pajama dressing to Chanel-style tweed skirt suits. — Tina Chadha

Hugo Boss - Runway - Fall 2014 Mercedes - Benz Fashion Week

Hugo Boss, no longer a boys’ club
Jason Wu’s debut collection for Hugo Boss, which was the brand’s first womenswear runway show, was all polish and immaculate tailoring in a very brand-appropriate neutral palette of gray, camel and black. Looks including a strappy charcoal cocktail dress and snug coats were tightly belted at the waist and reached well below the knee. They oozed Wu’s signature ladylike aesthetic and clearly stated, “Move over, boys.” — Tina Chadha
