Proenza Schouler's SS11 collex brings "shibori" to fashionista lexicon

Bergdorf Goodman helps introduce the word "shibori" to the well-heeled set.

Fashion darlings, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, who head the high-end designer label, Proenza Schouler, are bringing shibori into fashionable closets across the country with their SS11 collection. What's more? They are actually calling it by its name: SHIBORI. Now, that's a first. Read the description from Bergdorf's below.
Count this as a win, folks.
Shibori Chiffon Dress

Familiar elements come together in unfamiliar ways on this Proenza Schouler dress.
The foundation for this innovation is shibori, a traditional Japanese dye
technique similar to tie dye—but different in subtle, important ways.

More from the collection.
