Zac Posen has been announced as the new creative director at America’s oldest fashion brand, Brooks Brothers. Posen will head the label’s womenswear collection and we for one can’t wait to see how the young designer will make his stamp on the brand.
“I am truly honoured and excited to be embarking on this incredible opportunity to take the Brooks Brothers women’s brand into the future while respecting its deep, rich American heritage as an institutional company,” said Posen.
Posen’s first collection for the label will debut for spring/summer 2016.
“We are thrilled to have Zac join us as creative director of our women’s Collection,” Claudio Del Vecchio, chairman and CEO of Brooks Brothers, said.
“As soon as we met, it was clear to us that he had a true understanding of our brand and its storied 196 year heritage as well as the creativity to modernise our offerings within the category.”
Posen, 33, has not made any hints that he will be leaving his own brand as he joins the Brooks Brothers.
