ZAC POSEN PRESENTS HIS RESORT 2014 COLLECTION, A ROMANTIC VISION OF DREAMY FEMININITY AND TAILORED GLAMOUR

For Resort 2014, Zac Posen envisions a narrative of airy, feminine romance balanced with a tailored classicism.
Says Zac Posen, "There's a dream quality to this collection. With its florals, softness and sense of lost grandeur, it evokes a Fellini film or a forgotten 'thirties garden party—but the structure and sculptural elements keep the clothing rooted in modern American glamour."

The collection showcases Posen's dexterity with color, print and intricate construction techniques. Dresses, evening gowns and daywear beguile in a cadre of lush, vibrant shades— from rubies, violets, emeralds and fuchsias, to powdery hues of blush, lavender, lilac, and cerulean. Bouquet prints, in sun‐faded amethyst and porcelain blue, and butterfly‐print silk taffeta are crafted into day dresses and ball gowns that evoke the soft femininity of the Rembrandt era.

There is a soft‐focus feel to the floral‐print chiffon, tone‐sur‐tone organza, and hand‐painted tulle used in the Resort collection's dresses; yet the fine construction techniques, such as pleating, pintucking, and intricate ruching achieve an elevated interplay of softness and structure. Cocktail dresses made of sculptural plissé silk fall on the body with fluid elegance.

The collection's separates—blouses, knits, skirts and pants—are also cut with softer silhouette, capturing a dreamy, soft‐focus feel. Jewel‐tone jacquard separates, including bolero jackets and pencil skirts, are built with architectural precision, while maintaining a harmony of ease and lightness.
Ruffles lend femininity to daywear, with peplums on tailored jackets of lilac‐colored tweed, and a note of antique luxury to bias‐cut evening gowns of the sheerest organza. The figure‐hugging day dress is rendered in a variety of different fabrications: stretch cotton, silk crepe, and bondage satin.

The Zac Posen Resort 2014 collection reads individuality and an uncompromising commitment to romance and craftsmanship.
