Picture this: You're a "poor little rich girl" being dragged to a tropical country club, maybe in Egypt or Bali, by your doting, but obviously clueless parents. All you really want to do is listen to secondhand Bow Wow Wow records (you're into vinyl now, because iPods lack personality), but a part of you loves the idea of parading around the beach in head-to-toe citron yellow leopard print (jacket, pin-up style bathing suit and pencil skirt) by Zac Posen, because no one gets life as a posh punk better than he does.
This is the scenario imagined by Posen for his Resort 2008 collection, which he showed in his Tribeca studio this week for editors and buyers, converting his showroom into a country club oasis complete with astroturf tennis court and wooden boardwalk all enclosed in a green and white striped tent.
