Zac Posen's Pre-fall Bunnies & Mushrooms

There was something kind of surreal about sitting in Zac Posen's showroom and listening to him walk the miniature crowd through his pre-fall collection this morning. He started out with a giant inspiration board - as in, at least a few feet taller than Zac and probably as wide as he is tall. The collection, which he called "Lewis Carroll meets Paloma Picasso," is partly inspired by where he lives, the Upper West Side, and the traditional American woman. That translated into whimsical prints including bunnies and birds and best of all mushrooms swirling on the bottom of a silk dress or printed on a cardigan. A handful of dresses were two in one; Zac stripped the top layer off at the end of the runway to reveal more fitted silhouettes and Instead of shoulder pads, he shaped his shoulders with seams, "I'm still insisting on no shoulder someone can make their own attitude." We tried to peek behind a door or two for a glimpse of anything Target related, but apparently, we'll have to be more patient.
