ZAC Zac Posen
June 11, 2014 New York
Another standout was the expanded knitwear offerings, which Posen has been developing for some time in order to meet his quality/cost standards. The designer topped one of his signature sexy little sheath dresses (that hugged Crystal Renn's curves in all the right places) with a cropped, color-blocked sweater that gave the outfit a modern edge. Elsewhere, he explored the idea of polished layering with a coordinating skirtsuit featuring an allover geometric motif, as well as a silk blouse shown underneath an embossed crop top. While Posen achieved a comparatively casual tone this time around, he still didn't skimp on glamorous eveningwear. Among the highlights here were a dramatic one-shoulder gown cut from cerulean bonded jersey and a black-and-white silk crepe number that gave the impression of a tank-and-trumpet skirt combination—each will go for around $1,000. All in all, lots of forward-thinking propositions from the House of Z.
