ZERO F/W 2009

You know you’re going to have a smashing success of a show when top dogs like Barneys’ Julie Gilhart, Elle’s Anne Slowey, and the New York Times’ Cathy Horyn and Stefano Tonchi show up on time for your Monday morning show.

Whether you’re an all-black kind of gal or still lovin’ plaid, a leather biker girl or prefer something more luxe, Zero’s got it for fall: Evening gowns accented in rich lacquer boucle, oversized black coats in textured cracked leather, tartan jackets made from ultra-warm mohair, and "eccentric leggings" in bright lime tweed.
