    this certainly looks more grown up than his previous z spoke collections. I just wish we had a full-length view on the outfits, it's a bit hard to judge when you can't see the whole dress.....

    Dark side !? Hardly

    If anything evokes a bit of 90's darkness it's hair, make-up and model attitude.

    If you study the actual clothes it's rather conservative fare still with as many silhouettes and details from 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's as 90's.

    Messy vision, poor realisation, confusion. Zac Posen just can't do 'dark'.

    i think he'd done a fantastic job on this. i am loving the square neck dress. i also love that he's used full length dresses here on this diffusion line. usually designers cheap out and opt for short dresses to save money on fabric costs.

    I find it uninspirational and sloppy!

    I don't understand why he insists on using these sort of photography to present his collections. It does NOTHING for the pieces. In fact, I agree with PerfectTonight, looks very sloppy. I'd also add, dirty. It's just cheap and not flattering (I know, I know, this is Zac Posen were're talking about). Any potential that these pieces may have is ruined by the awful presentation.

    It looks really dated and I think the presentation ruined any hope the collection had.

    i think there are some nice pieces in here, but agree the collection is tough to fully assess due to the presentation...
    even something as simple as pulling back that bluntly cut hair would have helped
    especially on the blonde
    i feel like it covers up too many necklines and shoulder details that i would have liked to get a better look at

    I think that this is a wearable and sellable collection but the models' overposing is distracting and makes me have to study the looks too much. I like Posen's body con looks, and have said before that he needs to diversify, and he has here with some nice tailored looks, and I think he needs to continue on that path.
