New York Fashion Week, Spring 2008: Zac Posen
Zac Posen and the Little House on the Prairie? Now that's a pair I never expected. Zac and Gwyneth? Sure. Zac and Demi? Absolutely. But for Spring, Mr. Posen's inspiration is the country gal - an odd choice, since he's a through and through New Yorker.
Posen sent ruffled-sleeve white prairie dresses, straw hats, and dresses decorated with rhinestone bundles of wheat down the runway. And there were plenty of earth tones: sepia, golden brown, beige. But my favorite were the big poofy watercolored dresses, each representing a different type of cloud: Nimbus, Cirrus, Cumulus...just beautiful, and quite befitting of what they were meant to represent.
There's no doubt about it: Zac's strength lies in his eveningwear. So take notes, you'll definitely be seeing some of these dresses again on the red carpet. Who would dare wear this sexy, slit black number?!
