after his move to paris from new york, zac posen seems poised to enter the high fashion stratosphere with no end in sight. recently admitted to the chambre syndicale in paris, zac will be creating couture in paris along with his namesake mainline & his moderately priced Z by zac posen collections. admittedly, im not always as receptive to posen’s designs, in comparison to other labels but i respect that he has always stayed true to himself as a designer. zac’s love for drama & classical style headline his 2012 resort collection as coco rocha stars in the collection images set. overall, there is that air of dark regality that i love so much about posen’s aesthetic & in seeing this collection, im eagerly anticipating what will happen for show season. overall, the collection is strong but is seemingly restrained, not providing any groundbreaking moments- rather, what is seen is a solidification of a skill that has already been clearly defined through design. great set, strong concepts, undeniable style.

fall prêt-à-porter, paris: zac posen

refined & stylized, zac posen presented his FW11 collection on the runways of paris fashion week yesterday. as jourdan dunn opened, coco rocha, karlie kloss, carmen kass, jessica stam, ming xi & crystal renn followed. noticeably more simplified this season, i really loved the collection for it’s fusion of classical & progressive elements. a dark, rich palette allowed each look to possess power on the bodies of each female who was cast. the design lines of the collection were particularly interesting; chic construction was seen throughout. with his signature silhouettes, the collection presented beautiful use of fur & perfect hints of metallics this season. seems like zac is even stronger in paris, since making the move from the runways of new york.

collection images: zac posen, pre-fall

the zac posen collections are very hit or miss with me. i find that my perception of beauty is always challenged; in areas i consider experimentation, the zac posen adds greater creative depth to more commercialized forms of beauty. yes we’ll get gowns & formal fashion looks, but there is always a slight alteration, a vague detail or some sort of lapse in concept. for the most part, a reasonably good product was presented through look book image for the pre-fall 2011 season. snakeskin was seen with fresh use of both green & blue. while dark undertones ruled the collection palette hilary rhoda & crystal renn assisted in delivery of this pre-season set. lush use of fur was seen & for the most part, designs were kept classic. im sure something further will be presented on the runways in paris for fall fashion week. a cohesive collection & clear vision overall.

spring prêt-à-porter: zac posen, paris

relocating from the runways of new york to those of paris fashion week, zac posen presents his first collection in the city of light for the SS11 season. sheer gowns were ornamented with ostrich feathers as karlie kloss opened the show & jourdan dunn closed. red was the headliner in the collection palette as posen takes a turn to the dark side for this spring collection which is heavy in black pieces as well. trading the floral print trend for feathers, a few of the collections gowns are seen with print with an interesting use of color gradation as well. overall, zac seems like a beautiful fit for the runways of paris.  the collection is a stunning, glamourous & sophisticated vision, with beautiful attention to detail; a strong showing for the spring.

springs collections: z spoke by zac posen, new york

with runway opener sessilee lopez jump starting the z spoke by zac posen spring collection runway show, we see a much more casual side of the zac posen design aesthetic. fun party dresses with creative layering & an approach to palette with depth, the collection is the moderately priced division of the zac posen label. much like DKNY to donna karan, zac posen aims to build his empire & has taken initiative in branching out. while crystal renn made her runway debut, she walked along side shades of yellow, blue & black as well as floral prints. a bit of vintage flare with slight cameos of tribal influence, the collection as a whole is commercially stylish. a great addition to the runways of new york; a thoughtful set of spring fashion design.

zac posen collections can test perceptions of beauty more often than never- but for the resort pre-season i was pleasantly surprised. through the sheer textiles & soft silhouettes, i found the collection filled with godess like garments. i fell in love with each look. the designs are commercially beautiful & each look is faultless. iced pastels of pink, blue & nude chilled throughout the collection & i found each piece very inspiring. i would love to see these garments photographed editorially. a very strong sense of vision & design for this set, a really amazing collection. it’s romantic, charming & much like a fantasy. very, very dope.
