If there is one designer I started loving over the past seasons, then it's definitely Zac Posen and especially his pre-fall collections. Year in, year out I'm simply overwhelmed by his mixture of casual chic and elegance. This year, he seems to have focused on one decisive characteristic: Being body conscious while playing with unusual cuts.
Dressing Hilary Rhoda in his finest gowns and chicest every-day creations, she seems like the modern Jackie O.!
Cobalt blue and strong purple bring my favourite season of the year back to life and set a young and fresh contrast to stereotypical colours and finest jewellery. As already mentioned, I personally predict this year's fall/winter to be a little bit (a tiny bit) fur-less (just like Burberry Prorsum has already demonstrated), so no wonder the accents of black tucks on collars and sleeve ends seem to be the new understatement way to show some fury love. Although his grey Chinchilla coat is a fur-lover's paradise, something just doesn't get off me saying that it looks way too old styled.
And his most significant creations of this collection? The evening gowns. Breathtaking, elegant - the simple outcome of a genious. No matter which colour or material - all of the selected pieces I'm posting stole my heart. Although I'm not a huge fan of flower prints, they appear as one of the most beautiful patterns one could have chosen for Posen's collection. My favourite? Obviously the black one. But besides from this, the burgundy coloured one with that beautiful free back of Rohda and the flower details. To die for.
