There was no mistaking that Zac Posen's collection presented yesterday during NewYork Fashion week was a fall collection, as the hues were aggressively autumnal. Deep, dark, rich colors like pumpkin, loden, eggplant, bordeaux, chocolate. Nothing light and breezy here — even the lips were wine-colored — and the fabrics were weighty, often folded, draped, pleated. It all felt a little too heavy for me, but if you're into beautiful, dramatic gowns and sumptuous velvet skirts, you may see something you like. If you live in a drafty château on the edge of a vineyard, you may see something you need.
I love Zac Posen. I know he's very right now. At first, I thought the mermaid dress thing was repetitive and too easy, until I saw the blue garment Amanda Seyfried wore. Literally perfect. It looked like it was just spilling off of her. So now I'm pro-Posen-mermaid.
Some of the cuts and colors here read a bit older, and I don't love the dark satin. Dark satin feels like MOB.
But then that last look on Coco Rocha? Falling to pieces again.
