"Z Spoke", will it be in your closet?
Today WWD announces that Posen is launching a lower priced line collection of garments. This seems the very popular among young designers because of the so called "recession". Posen is going from garments costing $900 - $20,000 to T-shirts starting at $78. Major difference right? This what he had to say.
“The dresses — that’s something I can do with my eyes closed. This is about a new identity.” His inspiration board is full of downtown imagery such as beaten-up Nike Dunks and a shot of Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle. A palette of neutrals with ample pops of kelly green, pink and red gives the clothes a retro vibe, or an “urban hipster quality” as Posen puts it, adding he could see these styles on a Lower East Side girl.
