Too Legit To Quit – Proenza Schouler S/S 2013 collection was a great ending to a great year. Just having opened their first store on the ever famous Madison Avenue, Schouler have become too legit to quit now. Last season they took us by storm with boxy motorcycle-like, leather jackets atop of leather, wrap minis proving to be a duo to be reckoned with. This season they upped the ante as bright (literally) ideas from the patchwork jean vest to variable python hues to sleeveless dresses flooded the catwalk.
