NEW YORK, N.Y. - Proenza Schouler designers Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough are nothing if not energetic.

In fact, "the boys," as the popular designing duo is known in the fashion world, practically bounded out onto the runway to take their wave to the crowd after their show Wednesday night in a downtown art gallery.

Hernandez was still bouncing backstage minutes later. "It's all about energy and humour," he said of the latest collection.

Proenza is known both for inventive designs and inventive ways of engineering fabric, and this collection was no exception. Their multicolored prints looked something like really nice building insulation; in fact, their invitations to the show were thick creations that seemed to contain a layer of insulation inside.

The shapes, too, were inventive: jackets and coats with very wide sleeves, round shoulders, and cinched hourglass waists, for example, were both unusual and flattering. Two things that don't always go together.

Asked about their design process for the collection, Hernandez allowed that it had been "intense. It's always intense." But, he added, "It's fun. We're putting the fun in fashion again!"

He wouldn't describe right away how "the boys" made their fabrics this time; it was probably too complicated.

"We'll talk later!" he said with a smile.
