The fresh collection known as "White Label," was first reported by WWD, and will reportedly comprise of the more casual pieces — such as denim, T-shirts, and basics — that have been part of the main line for a while, but will now be separated out and highlighted in an effort to boost the business with more accessible, affordable options.

The move follows the recent appointment of Elizabeth Giardina to the design team — from Derek Lam 10 Crosby where she had been vice president of design for five years — and chief executive officer, Judd Crane, who joined the c-suite at Proenza Schouler from Selfridges last year.

Proenza Schouler is the brain child of designer duo Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, and was launched in 2002 as a womenswear and accessories brand.
