That was quite an impressive lineup of models at Zac Posen, Naomi Campbell, Angela Lindvall, Karolina Kurkova and even Erin o’Connor were present. And the supermodels weren’t the only thing that looked vintage, the music and the clothes both had a retro vibe. Skirtsuits breathed a forties vibe, wide leg satin pants  and a jumpsuit reminded us of Studio 54 era.  Most of the designer’s attention was focused on gowns, timeless is good for red carpet occasions. And so does color, like ivory, scarlet-red and mint-green.

After having showed in Paris for two seasons Zac Posen returned to New York for Fashion Week on Sunday. He presented a collection all of his famous friends will love. His designs seemed fit for a classy business meeting as well as for any kind of award ceremony. And so did the models classic hairdo’s and stately jewelry pieces.

There was no clear theme or thread; it was just a pretty collection of elegant, form fitting dresses in shades like pastel, ruby, emerald and grey.

Posen seemed to have gone a little too far with a revealing off-shoulder, grey V-neck dress, but overall his creations looked great for both young and old.

Oprah Winfrey wore one of his dresses to the Oscars this week, so regardless of any critics that will follow after his show Zac Posen must be in a good mood.

Today he presented his new collection in the basement of Palais de Tokyo. The show area was a simple, bleak room, but the clothes made up for the non-exciting space.

Posen’s models (wearing bright eye shadow) looked slim and lean in their silhouette accentuating, wool dresses. Even Crystal Renn appeared slimmer in her black dress with low V-line and strong shoulders.

The short, straight pants looked good on the girls, yet might not look as flattering on a woman with a more average size and length.

Shades of cobalt blue, teal, rose blush and silver were perfect for winter, but didn’t necessarily belong together in one collection.

A few peplum jackets and fur coats gave the collection some edge and overall it was a great collection for women of many different sizes and ages. Or as Zac called them himself: voracious, sexy, intelligent and chic women

We say: more than enough options for next big event, Oprah!

It was the first time Zac Posen presented his collection during Paris Fashion Week. It looks he brought American glamour to France. But is also looked as if he thinks women have nothing better to do than going to cocktails and parties – besides a few daytime-clothes his collection was all about eveningwear.

There was no visible fashion direction at all, not the minimalist nor the 70’s glamour or color. Instead he throwed in black lace, feathers and fur for his showgirl boudoir-theme. Most of the time it was over the top, but there were some beauties like black ombre silk gown with feathers on each shoulder. We definitely will see that one back at the red carpet.

Trends ss2010: fantastic plastic

How can you protect yourself from the rain and still look sexy?

Zac Posen, Sonia Rykiel, Frankie Morello, D Squared and others gave us the answer: you just wear a transparent plastic raincoat. In this way you’re still showing the great outfit you’re wearing underneath and your silhouette stays visible too.

For next spring transparent plastic was used by several different designers. Isn’t it typical that at least four designers came up with a see-through raincoat, independently of each other? At all four shows these raincoats also popped up out of nowhere and didn’t really connect to the rest of the clothes in the collections.
But the raincoat wasn’t the only transparent plastic item; there were bags and shoes as well, for example at Prada. D Squared and Charles Anastase both had transparent bags too.

Michael Kors used the plastic for his bathing suits and bracelets. Out of everything we saw the most fantastic plastic was made by Frankie Morello. He came up with a chique Chanel-looking plastic jacket, which had collar and cuffs made out of fabric.

Zac Posen’s collection looked youtful and a fun to wear. The designer seemed to be inspired by the late seventies New York woman and the clothes had the attitude of a partygoing good-time girl.  Posen pushed a color story and did so with colorblocking for day:  chalky pink, yellow and purple on structured dresses, some with cutouts at the waist, and see-through raincoats worn over Pop Art geometric prints. That Mod-ish flavor and kitsch factor was quite charming, but some will not be easy to sell. Posen’s prints were beautiful, the bold florals were custom designed by NYC artist Rosson Crow. Posen put them on kicky pleated skirts and sexy cocktail dresses draped and cut to show skin at the shoulders and back.
