Modern Classics

Proenza Schouler boucle jacket 3

Some things are obvious classics the moment you see them.  Or, at least if not the first moment, then shortly thereafter, when you’ve wrapped your mind around their newness.

This boucle jacket by Proenza Schouler and flats by Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga are both new classics.  They’re deceptively simple, while being just tweaked enough to be entirely new.

This blog derives its name from Jackie Kennedy because, though she was a product of her time and her style changed along with the fashion of her day, her look was always classic.  While she experimented with the trends of her day, she did so in a way that looked eternal.

I think that if Jackie were still here, she would love these pieces.

      Thank you so much, Josephina!! It really is a stunning jacket. Somehow Proenza Schouler gets better and better all the time. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for next season!
