Zac Posen: Echoes from Decades of Party Girls Past!

Ever since his runway debut at the age of twenty, Zac Posen has consistently been applauded for designing beyond his age, creating fairytale ballgowns and cabaret dresses comparable to those of the 60 year old grand couturiers. Now that Zac has mastered that aesthetic, what was the next logical step? Why going to the younger, wearable clothes he never got around to designing in the first place, of course! For Spring 2010 Posen presented us with a collage of clothing inspired by young party girls from decades past, but with themes of simplicity, cleanliness and architecture keeping it modern. From the 50s to the 90s, and every decade in between, Zac's collection featured 50s full pleated skirts, 60s pop art influences, 70s Halston pieces, 80s shoulders, and saw the 90s flirty supermodel return to the runway, best reincarnated in Coco Rocha, Maryna Linchuk, Abbey Lee and Irina Lazareanu. The cherry on top was the tiger and floral prints designed by Zac's friend, artist Rosson Crow. Zac has finally delivered to a whole generation of girls who’ve been starving for his clothes, just by pulling back in volume, and pumping up the colour! After the jump, see my favourite looks from the collection!
