SUPER REVIVAL
New York: Zac Posen has known how to stay within his lane for quite some time, sticking to elegant, retro cocktail dresses and dramatic ball gowns destined for the red carpet. For S/S 13 the designer staged a minor shakeup with an equally retro casting choice, bringing supermodels Naomi Campbell, Angela Lindvall, Erin O’Connor, Karolina Kurkova and Alek Wek back to the runway. All five looked feminine and powerful in 40s silhouettes crafted from a heady mix of jewel-tone duchess satin, tulle and floral organza, but it was a brief series of sharp skirt suits and wide-leg trousers that really made a fresh impact for Posen.—Nina Stotler
