If you only look at one set of detail shots from New York Fashion Week, make it Proenza Schouler’s. Not even for the bags, necessarily; most of these pieces will come to retail in a very limited way, with the well-known PS1s and PS11s dominating the Proenza handbag landscape. No, look at these photos for the closeup of what’s around them – the cuff details, the immaculate and inventive weaving, the tiny touches added that make a garment so special – and you’ll see why so many people lose their breath praising the brand.

The story of Proenza Schouler’s brilliance has always been in the closeup for me, and these clear, crisp shots from Vogue explain why. These are garments unlike ones that you’ll find at a mid-range chain in a few months because Proenza does things that are genuinely difficult to produce and expensive to design, even in the capacity of a Zara knockoff. The bags are fun too, don’t get me wrong, but they don’t tell the entire story.
