Season's Round Up # 24: ZAC POSEN SPRING-SUMMER 2013
Zac Posen’s collection for SS2013 Women’s RTW can be described in one word. Genius. It was one spectacular show - from the amazing pieces that strutted down the runway to the barrage of famous [and infamous] models the likes of Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha, Alek Wek – it was one spectacle after the other and much much more! Known for his flamboyant pieces, especially when it comes to gowns, his collection this season definitely stayed true to the essence of his showmanship and it exceeded expectations by going above and beyond his signature pieces. You’ll see a lot of gorgeous day dresses and blazers paired with fluted skirts littered on top of floral prints and chiffon. And these were just the beginning, considering that this was already in itself a step above Posen’s design aesthetic. I think the spectacle of the show goes into his eveningwear, where you see extravagance spilling down the runway! It was definitely an overflow of luxe to the nth degree – seeing pieces such as a body-hugging bodice of tulle that explodes at the waist curiously paired with wide-leg trousers or that gorgeous final gown worn by Rocha that boasts of billowing tiers of tulle. If these weren’t enough to whet your appetite for what he has to offer next season, I don’t know what would! It’s just sheer brilliance and it would take a fashion non-believer not to think so!
