I absolutely love Zac Posen’s Pre-Fall 2009 collection. From what I can see, it is going to be a very good year. The vintage, 1940’s inspired silhouettes are flirty and feminine, an aesthetic that is quintessentially Zac Posen. The looks are so gorgeous and glamorous, that they remind me of playing dress up!
The designer is seeking to inspire fashion aficionadas during trying times. “Saying that he hoped his show would inspire during challenging times, Zac Posen returned to the flirty, forties-inflected clothes that are his signature—and, as it happens, recall the look that was popular at the end of the Great Depression. For day, there were trumpet-skirted suits in sober wools, though Posen might prefer his customer play it carefree in a groovy eel-skin trench and leopard dress.”
