On September 14th, during New York Fashion Week, Zac Posen presented his latest collection for Brooks Brothers to a fashionable crowd, including Katie Holmes. Posen was appointed Creative Director for the brand in the beginning of this year.
For SS’17 he played with proportion to create dresses and separates suitable for a typical day at the office or a weekend vacation.
Clothes were inspired by a gamut of beach getaways, from Rhode Island to the Côte d’Azur. Cecil Beaton’s 1960s photographs of Gloria Guinness provided Posen with the perfect muse. Of the collection, the designer stated:
“On my journey as Creative Director for the Brooks Brothers Women’s Collection, I continue to develop and reinterpret key silhouettes and create pieces for a woman’s wardrobe that are equally modern and timeless. It’s all about building on the brand’s heritage while looking to the future.” -Zac Posen
