Zac Posen Drives Elegant Authority at Spring Studios

By Caroline Wall

February 16, 2016

Zac Posen dominated the runway with his fall/winter 2016 collection, which debuted Monday evening at Spring Studios in SoHo. Inspired by Princess Elizabeth of Toro, a Ugandan Renaissance woman with a career in law, politics, acting, and modeling, the collection brimmed with elegant authority, reflecting Posen’s history of work with iconic women such as Rihanna and Michelle Obama. The collection garnered further praise on social media for the number of models of color included in its debut.

Described as “a study of couture geometrics of the 1930s,” the collection featured draping swathes of dark fabrics pinched in all the right places to create breezy, confident looks. Embroidered jackets with matching skirts stood alongside deep red jumpsuits and florals, each accentuated with carefully placed junctions of fabric and thematic button lines. Standout pieces included a layered grey-and-silver floral dress, and its reincarnation as a spaghetti-strap romper with splashes of bright blue.
