The Entire Z Spoke Spring 2012 Lookbook — Plus, All the New Accessories
>> Zac Posen riffed on the idea of wardrobe essentials — with a twist — for his Spring 2012 Z Spoke collection. "There's no need for more essentials that are basic," he explains. "These have a bit of fashion to them." To that end, Posen's essentials are dressed-up, playful, and full of the designer's signature feminine detailing: lean-cut trousers come in shiny two-tone faille or tie-dyed lace, shirt dresses in whisper-weight seersucker, and skirts in swinging full flares. There's plenty of wearable whimsy too — a swinging "disco tent dress" in shimmering sequins, a floaty ruched-chiffon neon shift — and lots of lively prints, like an "acid" cheetah in chartreuse and lemon, ditsy florals in abstracted batiks. "This is a wardrobe, and it's nice to be able to mix it up and show the diversity of it," Posen says. br> The collection's diversity carries through to accessories as well, with luxe Nappa leather totes and embossed-croc satchels mingling easily with brightly-colored iPad cases and studded clutches — which run from $225 to $695. See all the looks from the Z Spoke Spring 2012 lookbook — modeled by Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Tennessee Thomas, Stephanie LaCava, Yaz Bukey, and Laura Love — and peek all the accessories, here in the slideshow.
