At Zac Zac Posen, the Twenties and Thirties served as inspiration points. The collection drew a lot of its graphic details from the Art Deco movement; translated into fabrics with graphic thread-work lace and fan patterns. Thread work showed most successfully in a black fan lace off-the-shoulder gown with tulle tiers and the fan pattern in the jacquard of a colorful strapless full-skirted hi-lo dress. Most long dresses were sleek and slinky with draped backs or floral embellishments; while others featured allover sparkles or rich jacquards that evoked the interior textiles of that time. Elsewhere, vintage lingerie was also referenced — as in a beautiful floral lilac camisole with black lace insert and matching skirt. For daytime, Posen went for soft tailoring with beaded details or floral embroidered striped dresses and tops.
