No one would accuse Zac Posen of being a minimalist, yet he incorporated some of the principals of the spare school of design into his resort collection, working in neutrals such as ivory, beige and navy on silhouettes cut with a relative cleanness. As Posen said, “As the clothing gets cleaner, the lines can get more architectural.” That approach brought a modern, sporty spirit to the lineup, even in the grandest looks. A classically feminine fit-and-flare dress done in nude Neoprene had a light, purist quality. Posen let the silhouette and sculpted seamwork make the impact on an exaggerated ballgown done in deep navy. Daywear, too, benefited from a subdued elegance, such as the caped blouse and cropped trousers modeled after Posen’s signature suits.
