McCOLLOUGH: It's Proenza Schouler. So many
people still say Shooler.
SEVIGNY: It's Schouler, as in late for school. I think people think Shooler is more sophisticated that Skooler.
McCOLLOUGH: There's definitely more stress. If anything, the biggest stress these days are these pre-collections. They eat up so much of our time. We don't have a design director, so Lazaro and I, for the most part, do everything ourselves on a design level. HERNANDEZ: Like, 90 percent of what you see.
McCOLLOUGH: We just finished this pre-fall collection on Saturday, and we have three weeks to start prepping the show for Fall/Winter.
SEVIGNY: Why do you have to do these mini-collections?
HERNANDEZ: It's the bread and butter.
SEVIGNY: You always go back to fluorescents. Is it an influence from rave culture or Body Glove, or simply being a child of the '80s? We were just bright and happy people. [laughs]
McCOLLOUGH: I think all those colors are super-nostalgic of our childhood.
SEVIGNY: I want to see you incorporate more Grateful Dead styles.
McCOLLOUGH: I know! We've toyed around with going there.
SEVIGNY: Or even more ethnic, Guatemalan-type things.
McCOLLOUGH: We're exploring Liberty prints, but a different take on them.
SEVIGNY: It looks like the same person drew these.
McCOLLOUGH: We draw very similarly.
HERNANDEZ: That's Jack's. That's mine. That's mine; Jack's; mine; Jack's. Do you know how you can tell? My drawings look right, his look left. Because he's right-handed and I'm left-handed.
