Zac Posen Brooks Brothers FW16
On a blistering cold day in New York in the heart of the Art District in Chelsea, Zac Posen and Brooks Brothers presented their collaboration in an exclusive setting within The Glasshouses. Among the particularly exclusive fashion community of editors, buyers, photographers and journalists, which included the likes of celebrity stylist/author June Ambrose, Nina Garcia, Robert Verdi, and Miss J, the models stood tall and astute, instantly showing us this will be the “Year of the Power Woman.”
Zac Posen was able to capture the feel of today’s woman by giving her options for a power-chic wardrobe. With pieces that can be described as timeless, classic, ’70s-inspired — yet unmistakably modern in cut and silhouette — Zac took us into the realm of the modern day Brooks Brothers woman: chic, business oriented, but who sees her wardrobe as a collection of investment pieces rather than designer duds.
The modern Brooks Brothers woman sees her wardrobe as a collection of investment pieces.
The collection was shown in presentation form — in lieu of runway show — which meant journalists, editors, and photographers had time to set up their cameras and take close-up shots of the detailed stitching, textures used, and had enough time to take note of their favorite pieces, the feel of the clothing, and maybe even snatch a sound bite or two from Mr. Posen himself.
Between the well-cut blazers, suits, and beautiful camel-color trenches, one saw the dedication and precision that’s the signature of Posen’s collections.
Brooks Brothers, of course, is traditionally known for their classic suits for men. But now the Power Woman has a new wardrobe to explore, thanks to Zac Posen and Brooks Brothers.
