I have just seen the Zac Posen pre-fall 2009 collection... and I am in love!!!!

"Saying that he hoped his show would inspire during challenging times, Zac Posen returned to the flirty, forties-inflected clothes that are his signature—and, as it happens, recall the look that was popular at the end of the Great Depression. For day, there were trumpet-skirted suits in sober wools, though Posen might prefer his customer play it carefree in a groovy eel-skin trench and leopard dress. The collection was heavily populated with little dresses—cocktail frocks embellished with swingy fringe and body-hugging knits. Posen kept the serious evening dramatics to a minimum, making them highly viable choices for the long red-carpet season ahead." - by Meenal Mistry from Style.com













I have left out two or three outfits that I didn't like, but everything else is perfect. I love the colours: peach, maroon, mint, lilac, gold and I have always been a fan of leopard print!

The mint dress is BEAUTIFUL!! And I want that suit - I could definitely wear that when I start work!! Love the 40s-inspired clothing, it was post-war, so everyone was pretty positive!

J'adore this collection! Love the ladylike glamour, and the fact that the show was held in a restaurant . . . is it Balthazar or Pastis in NYC? Looks familiar!

oh my god I hadn't seen it yet as I'm not normally into Zac Posen but it's lovely! That yellow dress is gorgeous

Some great retro chic here. I do love your blog. Vintage has evolved into a place all its own and needs the kind of expertise you share with all of us.

He was always one of my favourites but I haven't loved his collections as much recently. It looks like there are some great red carpet dresses in here though.

WOW! It's like looking back in time. It's no secret that vintage is often the inspiration for today's designers, and Posen really got it right!

I absolutely love this style of dress. How beautiful. Sometimes Zac bores me a little but this collection is out of this world.

This is a gorgeous collection. It really feels as if it belongs in the 1940s--not much modernity to it.

Oh Penny! thanks for doing this round up. This collection is a dream! I love everything you showed and I am intrigued by the fur cuffs on the image with the black dress and leopard print coat.

I love fringe in general, but his take on 1940s is class..
