ZAC Zac Posen: The New Go-To for Everyday Glamour

Zac_byMichael_smZac Posen has never been one to play it safe. The CFDA Award-winning designer showed his first collection at 21, nabbed Sean “P. Diddy” Combs as an early investor, and released a buzzy collab with Target in 2008 — all the while dressing and mingling with his enviable coterie of friends and muses (Coco Rocha, Natalie Portman, and Claire Danes, to name a few). In Fall 2013, he was at it again with the launch of ZAC Zac Posen — on Gilt today — a contemporary line he calls a “natural evolution of the Zac Posen brand”.

“I’m inspired by a woman who is youthful, metropolitan, characterized by an eased sophistication, and has a strong sensibility,” Posen tell us. “The collection is designed for a customer looking for fashion, but with an accessible reach.” A lover of all things tailored and Old Hollywood, Posen has infused the line with the architectural craftsmanship and striking materials that have become his signatures: “What’s special about ZAC Zac Posen is the use of fabric manipulation techniques to achieve a truly day-to-night look. They can be accessorized elegantly for the daytime and paired with an evening clutch for after-work events.”

As far as dressing for spring goes, Posen’s playing favorites: “I always love stretch satin crepe for the impeccable quality of embracing and enhancing every body type; the knits are so comfortable and very stylish; and the printed georgette is a must for spring and summer. This season is all about florals, our very own Glasgow green, and jewel tones such as amethyst.”
