ZAC POSEN resort 2013
Zac Posen was on hand today for his Resort 2013 press previews, with the help of a thorough team. Zac Posen and Z Spoke were shown alongside each other, reflecting the designer’s desire to maintain consistency between the higher and lower price point collections.Despite being Resort, the colors ranged from deep plums to whisper light grays to bursts of marigold yellow. Of course the signature gowns were the highlight of the collection, proving that Zac’s young age doesn’t betray his intimate knowledge of couture techniques in dress formation. Fishtail trains and cream tulle skirts complemented the incredible bodice and corset tops.
Any woman would die to find an event to wear one of these fairy-tale creations. Several of the prints from the gowns carried over to separates, showing a day to night transition. Though gowns don’t scream comfort, some of the knit pieces, sourced in France, offered more relaxed options that still hugged every curve (for the coquette in you).
This collection speaks to the American heritage of dressing and dress making. Traditional American couture techniques are reinterpreted, structure is juxtaposed with fluidity, and incorporative construction becomes the decorative element. – Zac Posen
