Zac Posen is known for his gorgeous gowns and cocktail dresses which celebrate the feminine figure through impeccable tailoring and visionary design. His pieces are bold and eye-catching and have graced many a red carpet. The celebrities who wear them always look stunning and never end up on the dreaded “worst dressed” list. 

Sadly, his work – sold at the highest price points in the high-end department stores and boutiques of the world – is unattainable by the masses…until now!

Not only has Zac Posen recently debuted his lower-priced sportswear line for Saks Fifth Avenue called “Z Spoke,” but he has also collaborated with Target to create a collection. 

A few looks from the "Z Spoke" line.

“Z Spoke” features easy-to-wear separates with signature Zac Posen detailing. The collection consists mostly of dresses and skirts – the items that Posen is best known for and most comfortable designing – but there is one pair of pants and one pair of shorts. The tops are simple, but useful, with a preppy vibe. The Posen-signature bold colors are evident, as is the body-conscious tailoring. Overall, I think that the collection is a success…except for maybe that name… (Thoughts? Comment above!) 

For those of us with even less cash to spend, the collaboration with Go International Target is scheduled to hit the sales-floor on April 25th. The pieces range in price from $16.99 - $199.99. Again, the collection consists of mostly dresses and skirts, but the designer has included a few bathing suits, a few jackets and even a suit. The colors are fun and the silhouettes are flirty so get yourself to Target as soon as the looks arrive or I fear there will be none left!       

And, of course, always remember to stop into your local STA where you may just find a Zac Posen couture or ready-to-wear piece that you can actually afford!
