February 7, 2005 -- ICY Vogue editrix Anna Wintour might be upset to learn that one of her trusted assistants was instrumental in the breakup of her favorite design duo.A few weeks ago, we broke the news that Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez, the gay couple behind red-hot fashion label Proenza Schouler, had split up romantically after five years together, potentially endangering their creative collaboration.
We couldn't do strong, bold letters because it would be, like, out to here . Mc Collough and Hernandez also cleared up questions surrounding their relationship — they are together personally as well as professionally (even though rumors have circulated that Derek Blasberg caused them to split years ago).
It's trademarked." Perhaps that's how their signature bag, the PS1, got named — it's as close to PS as they could get.
A rep for Wintour, who first put Proenza Schouler on the map, had no comment.
Our source notes the partner swap is amusing since "The Vogue staffer and Mc Collough bear a very striking resemblance to each other, and Hernandez and the Vogue guy's boyfriend are both handsome Latino heartthrobs." The source says the magazine staffer "banned" the boyfriend from New York following his escapades with Mc Collough.
Meanwhile, Hernandez has moved out of Mc Collough's apartment and bought one of his own, and relations between the pair have deteriorated.
