Monday Mood-Lift Alert: Zac Posen Takes Us on the Most Decadent Shopping Trip Ever!

It’s Monday, but my mind is still in Saturday mode! If you can relate, I have the perfect fashion antidote to get you inspired: a shopping trip with Zac Posen.

Now, we can’t actually meet up with the designer this afternoon at our favorite department store (I wish!), but he has curated an amazing list of finds that I’m swooning over at 1stdibs.com, a site that sells prestigious antiques, vintage couture, estate jewelry, and fine art.

“As a creator, nothing is more inspiring than seeing other objects, artifacts, and designs,” Zac said. “Whether I’m browsing for work, friends, or myself, 1stdibs is an excellent visual encyclopedia of design history.”

He has picked super-luxurious items from labels including Azzedine Alaia, Halston, Hermes, Elsa Schiaparelli, Cartier, Lanvin (from the 1970s!), and Faberge.

Here are a few items he posted on his 1stdibs page:

zac-posen-faberge-cigarette-case-1

Faberge Michael Perchin Green Enamel Cigarette Case.

zac-posen-dali-schiaparelli-compact

Salvador Dali for Schiaparelli HC Telephone Compact, Fall 1935.

zac-posen-archibald-knox-art-deco-comb

Archibald Knox An Important Diadem Comb for Liberty & Co.

Doesn’t he have the best taste? I’m mildly obsessed with the cigarette case, although I would use it to hold other things!
