Zac Posen’s iconic tailoring takes on an up-tempo silhouette in his Spring 2012 collection. Known for his mastery of the feminine form, this season Posen stayed true to his style ethos. There are recognizable silhouettes like whimsical skirts and cocktail frocks with abbreviated hemlines to light-knit sweaters.

The contemporary collection, Z Spoke, delivers Posen’s usual promise of fun prints and playful fabrics. With a soft pastel color palette, a distinctive combination of pieces to mix and match, and youthful sophistication, Posen presents a line that is a lightened alternative to his dramatic silhouette traditions.

Posen injected an upbeat focus into his latest collection, leaning in the direction of sportswear with easy to wear jersey gowns, pantsuits with a1940s flair, and tailored varsity jacket inspired blazers. The collection has a strong, feminine appeal and its perfectly polished skirts in retro florals and slouchy tops are must-haves for a flirty and bold wardrobe.
