Zac PosenSpring Summer 2014 New York

Runway Review
9/9/2013 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

Zac Posen Spring 2014 is an ultra-romantic collection based on soft, undulating curves and lush, sculptural volumes. Plays of transparency, lightness, movement, and pale florals draw from the gardens of impressionism.

Says Zac Posen, " the collection depicts a romantic femininity. A manipulation of emotional textures, a layering of prints, and tonalities of color within a single piece evoke a modern-day Sarah Bernardt."

Cocktail and day dresses reveal a beguiling, softer dimension of anatomical construction. Hand-plisse dresses fall across the body with a fluid, organic drape. Satin corsetry is balanced with featherweight ruffles on knee-legnth evening dresses. Rich, gold-colored stretch duchess is lent a pleasant ease wit voluminous sleeves and architectural back.

For evening, Art Nouveau influences the collection's elliptical lines and sensual palette. Cape-sleeved silk dresses and bias-cut satin gowns are rendered in watercolor shades including eau de nil, celadon, blush, nude and sea foam. The circular tiers of ruffled skirts appear throughout, rendered with both ethereal simplicity and exaggerated volume on strapless evening gowns.

The silk taffeta red-carpet gowns further amplify the play on movement and scale. Pale ink silk, gently kissed with white blossoms, is fashioned into wide-leg trousers paired with a wisteria print organza top top for evening and an ultra-full-skirted ball gown. A sheer, carnelian-red chiffon evening gown falls to the floor in structured layers of curves and tiers highlighted by smoky-red ribbon. Together, these pieces showcase a graceful femininity and exquisite architectural construction.
