"Ease" was also how Posen described the collection, which he showed to press in his New York studio on Dec. 4. It's composed of numerous separates in curly stretch wool boucle, stretch twill with Deco-like seams, and some incredible knits that combine three techniques in a single garment - printing, jacquard and intarsia. One standout from this group included an intarsia knit dress with floppy, scalloped ruffles of glittery hot pink knit that formed a punkish, poodle-like collar.
Mongolian lamb trim on several pieces, along with a liberal use of sparkly lurex - essential details for any glam rocker or disco dolly - prevented the feminine looks from looking overly saccharine.
"I wanted to go to that edge place with the collection," said Posen.But this doesn't mean "unwearable" by any means - every detail pointed back to the construction, which with Posen, means it's going to flatter and emphasize all the right places
