“Great Boots” – those were the words I heard as I was fiddling with my camera at the Zac Posen studio where I went to check out the Z Spoke Fall 2011 collection. I said a quick “thank you” and as I looked up to see who I was thanking, I did a double take as it was the charming Zac Posen himself.
I’ve been a fan of Zac Posen and his eponymous line since he burst on to the scene in 2001. He seems to know exactly what women want and he has a signature style that is immediately recognizable – something extraordinary for such a young designer. The Z Spoke collection offers his signature style – at a price point that most of us mere mortals can afford – without sacrificing quality or aesthetics. You can see the complete collection and Z Spoke by Zac Posen Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection Review in a previous post.
In addition to extremely wearable and gorgeous clothes, the Z Spoke collection has an assortment of handbags that embody his feminine style. Available in leather and patent leather with varying finishes that include embossed ostrich and crocodile (love!) in eye-popping colors like lipstick red, powder blue, black, caramel, navy, olive green, teal, plum and copper. His signature bag, appropriately named the “Zac Sac” has a quilted leather pattern, bridal handle and tassle. One of my favorite details of the bag collection is the rose gold hardware – a nice subtle touch that makes the bags unique. Another favorite design detail is the bows on the side of the bags – yet another gift to his ladylike ladies. View the Z Spoke by Zac Posen Fall 2011 handbag collection in the gallery below…
