Chloë Sevigny chats with her buddies Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler in the March issue of Interview, which is out now in New York and LA and hits newsstands nationwide on March 1st. What did the boys reveal? 


Jack and Lazaro on picking the company name:


Jack: The whole reason why we even picked that name in the first place was that when we started, Barneys had just bought our collection and we didn’t have a name. We thought, Hernandez McCollough? Doesn’t sound so high end, does it?

 

Lazaro: Proenza Schouler is better. I actually regret it. 


Jack: Yeah. One of our biggest regrets is the name of our company

 

Chloe: Really? 

 

Jack: It's like alphabet soup. There are so many letters. Even coming up with a font was a mission. We had to do these fine, little letters. We couldn't do strong, bold letters because it would be, like, out to here.


How to Say it!

 

Chloe: So, for the record, I want to get the pronunciation of Proenza Schouler down right.

 

Jack: It's Proenza Schouler. So many people still say Schooler.

 

Chloe: It's Schouler, as in late for school. I think people think Schooler is more sophisticated than Skooker.

 

Lazaro: It's like saying Donna Ka-Ran (laughs). That's like how my parents say it. 

 

Jack and Lazaro on competition with other young designers:

 

Chloe: Do you feel a healthy competitiveness with other designers? 

 

Lazaro: Totally. 

 

Chloe: Because I love going to parties with you guys and you are friends with Joseph [Altuzarra] and Alex [Wang] and everyone’s all pal-sy. For me, as an actress, I could be like, “Please—she got that role? I’m so jealous.” 

 

Lazaro: I think in the very beginning when we were trying to break through, we reacted to people who had already broken through a bit with something like, “I hate him!” But now we feel more like there’s room for everyone. Everyone does something different. All the young designers now are doing something interesting.

The upcoming fall/winter Mugler collection, entitled "Anatomy of Change," is bound to be bold, to put it mildly. Now we have a visual amuse bouche of the racy togs to debut on the runway -- and livestreaming here! -- on March 2.  Lady Gaga's stylist, Nicola Formichetti, is creative director for the brand, and he's already put his reinvention wizardry to task by dropping the Thierry and going on a last-name basis. Fingers crossed that Gaga takes a surprise strut down the catwalk!

The UK's Daily Mail recently reported that Kate Moss is designing her own wedding dress, but it looks like that story is, as they say, rubbish. The much trustier Telegraph is reporting that Kate's asked her longtime pal John Galliano to design her gown. The model and constant subject of make believe news is set to marry James Hince on July 2nd. Chic secretly hopes the rumors are true... what exactly would madame Moss whip up for her nuptials?!

We know we often point out people who look similar, but we recently chatted with two quirky fashion originals, and were fascinated to learn they had more in common than just individuality and a penchant for wacky accessories. Who knew? 

 

Anna Dello Russo:

Have you ever been stranded at the airport?

No.


How do you act when you’re sick?
I’m never sick. Thank god! I practice yoga and live a healthy life. I haven’t been sick since I was a kid. 

 

 

Patricia Field:

When you’re stranded in an airport, what do you like to do? 

I don’t get stranded in airports.

 

How do you act when you get sick?
I don’t get sick.

Blame it on the bleary-eyed 9:30 a.m.-ness of it all, but when Katie Holmes showed up at the Via Senato for this morning's MaxMara show in a chocolate brown one-shoulder frock and a camel coat, she went almost unnoticed by the crowd at large. Her Holmsiness is in town with her mother, Kathleen Stothers; they're guests of MaxMara's own Luigi Maramotti, whose mother Achille Maramotti founded the house in 1961. The receipient of the 2011 Women in Film MaxMara "Face of the Future"' award, Holmes will accept her award in June at a bash in Beverly Hills. Behold this priceless interaction with Hilary Alexander.
