It’s doubtful that mere mortals would consider Rachel Zoe’s ultraglam style effortless — her sky-high platforms alone are a balancing act — but that was her goal this season. And to a great extent, she achieved it. Working in a mostly black-and-white palette, Zoe showed her versions of a Seventies power suit — a floor-skimming drawstring skirt, an elongated blazer belted over a chiffon shirtdress — and lots of those beloved jumpsuits. There was plenty of sparkle, of course, but tempered with a high-low approach, such as a paillette-encrusted evening skirt with a drapy T-shirt, and a sequined top with little leather shorts.

Zoe also had a lot to say about accessories. Among her declarations during a preview last week: She would bring back the fanny pack (she did, and in gold statement hardware); she believed in boots for spring (sheer-ish linen) and she was dying for pair of gold necklaces (a lariat and a horn-shaped pendant).
