While Zac Posen’s show last season was all about the playful neons, his Fall/Winter 2010 collection featured a much more fall-friendly (and noticeably grown-up) palette. His downplay of color allowed him to instead amp up the texture and structured details, featuring panels of soft suede, shiny satin pleats, and tiered fur. With a focus on signature short dresses (made cool-weather appropriate with tights), the collection boasted pieces that were carefully structured (some even with corset-style boning) but still had loads of movement; his series of floaty satin skirts seemed to sashay down the runway. While the collection mainly displayed an uncharacteristic amount of restraint on the designer’s part, the unexpected fur boots and smudgy black eye makeup helped to keep the show from looking too “pretty” or put-together.
