There are many reasons why you may know and love Zac Posen: you may know him from his work with Brooks Brothers, as a popular Project Runway judge, or maybe even for his newly-launched cookbook. It just shows you how many projects the designer is a part of. But before all of that, Zac is an incredible luxury evening wear creator – and his own label’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection will show it.
“This season, I was influenced by the jewel tones of Kees van Dongen’s paintings. Using colors to accentuate the silhouettes and the female form,” the designer shared on his website.
Fittingly, the jewel toned garments reign supreme in this diverse positively regal collection. Luxe emerald greens, moody sapphire blues, and jaw-dropping ruby reds lend themselves perfectly to the designer’s occasion formal wear. In addition to showcasing pieces that would be perfect on Hollywood’s hottest celebrities for their red carpet appearances, the Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2018 collection also features photo-ready cocktail dresses and more casual party wear. It’s all dressed-up, ready to go from day to night, and pays tribute to Old Hollywood glamour references – which is all by intentional design.
“A designer customer today has a whole casual life before they will go into designer clothing, meaning jeans and sweatpants,” Zac Posen explained. “It’s no longer even contemporary as much, it’s ath-leisure. So if they are going to buy an evening piece, it’s going to be special.”
