Zac Posen s/s 2008 collection

Zac Posen s/s 08

If you remember, Zac Posen's s/s 08 collection was inspired by wheat fields and the classic film, 'Days of Heaven', which was shot entirely in natural light and takes place on the Texas Panhandle. The concept was quite easy to pick up on as straw hats, dresses that resemble dry wheat and billowing clouds, and separates that drew upon the Shaker uniform, dominated the collection.


The issue with this potent concept is that we find it difficult to interpret the collection otherwise and, if intended for purchase, that can pose a problem. Re-imagined, we suppose the sheer separates, suit jackets, and deco print dresses aren't that hard to envision passing you on the sidewalk, but, there are a few we find difficult to extract from the theme and though that's sometimes the brilliance of high design, we wonder if the spectacle could have been more subtle.
