With much anticipation for Zac Posen’s Go International line for Target, due out April 25th, I am more excited for his new secondary line, Z Spoke, that recently launched at Saks Fifth Avenue. In Z Spoke’s collection, Posen channels the styles of fashion icons that influenced him, such as Jackie-O and Catherine Deneuve, with a fresh American retro vibe.
Denim fans should get excited about the fall collection, which marks a denim push with clean-cut tailored jackets, trousers and shift dresses, some with grosgrain ribbon trim, as well as little viscose knit dresses with trompe l??™oeil details. All incredibly chic at affordable prices.
???The collection has its own identity along the lines of a Miu Miu. It??™s for the gallerina, the hipster growing up and going to work. It??™s for her, her mother and her grandmother,??? said Posen.
Posen said he designs Z Spoke for the ???hipster that grew up??? in both price and size: ???I wanted to create a collection that??™s age diverse and body diverse — we go from 0 to size 14. Next season we go up to size 16. Our obi belts [$165] give shape and contour. Z Spoke is not just a diffusion of our top line, it??™s quirky minimalist sportswear with American sophistication.” (LA Times)
Z Spoke’s prices start at $78 for a logo T-shirt and go to $445 for patterned stretch-knit dresses. Included in the collection are belts and soon to be added handbags. Z Spoke is available now at Saks Fifth Avenue.
