What do Dominico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana and Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernandez have in common? Dolce & Gabanna and Proenza Schouler are both made up of a duo of gay designers (duh). Neither of them have an off-price collection (anymore). The two sets each have impecable tailoring with a love of color. And both pairs of designers ruminated over their struggles getting into Bergdorf’s in the Bergdorf Goodman documentary. Oh, and these two design houses each featured people and faces in their Spring ’13 prints. It was a bizarre jarring departure from the expected, and the only two runways we’ve seen face up to it. Who does it better?
