Zac Posen Does Dazzling Daywear for Spring/Summer 2017
Read Article

For Fall/Winter 2015, Zac Posen went crimson and clover, over and over, moving from red to green, and then exploring neutral territory in between. The show launched with a dozen shades of rouge, signaling Posen’s status as king of the red carpet.

His creations went from a simple ruby dress intersected with matching suede yoke details to a stunning fur coat over a tomato-red top and slim maroon trousers. The ensembles were rather minimal given Posen’s penchant for over-the-top opulence, but he has been working to include more daywear looks in his collections. He also presented lightly checkered separates in shades of slate and clover, but couldn’t help from deviating toward his flashier roots with slick party frocks lined with strips of sequin. Eveningwear featured beautifully constructed gowns made from thick, glossy satin, which he whittled at with strategically placed cutouts and delicate folded details to break the surface tension of the single-color fabrics.

In one of the season’s most major moments so far, Naomi Campbell emerged to close the show in a jaw-dropping, sparkling, rose-hued gown that featured a four-foot-wide skirt. She slid down the runway with her signature gait, hands on her hips, owning every inch of space that the catwalk could afford her. After a rather simple collection, this was a brilliant way to end the presentation, and it guaranteed a flood of social-media buzz. Sure enough, platforms across the globe lit up with her final look, which might have been a maximal departure from the rest of his minimal collection, but it served the same god of glamour.
