For Spring/Summer 2014 Zac Posen created exquisitely sculptural silhouettes full of romanticism and a bit of sweet melancholy. Structure was achieved through the intricate draping of light-weight, flowing fabrics which looks demanding, but Zac has hired the experts and artizans who can do this job. The romance was further reinforced by this beautiful palette of candid pastels and neutrals as well as complimented with silk tiny flowers on the models’ updos. It was mostly about special-occasion eveningwear which to me was really attractive and sophisticated. I think though that the strongest point made through this collection was that red carpet looks can also be knee-length and still fabulous. Women love to show off their legs and most importantly their fabulous shoes!
Zac in this collection – presented at the MB Fashion Week – was inspired by Impressionism and in general there was a retro feel in these dresses, revealing the fragile side of femininity. Maybe he really wanted to remove the heavy burden women carry today, in the role of multi-talented over-achievers. Women are still soft and tender creatures and love to wrap themselves in multiple frills of ethereal silks! Don’t you agree ladies?
