Striking a Pose with Zac Posen

by Andrea De Silva

Zac Posen encapsulates drama like no other. This resort collection is inevitably full of drama with floral prints to frocks that evoke a sense of poetry. The movement and the silhouettes of the collection are firmly on the cusp of evening wear which is Zac Posen’s bread and butter. But beyond that, this collection also feels much more organic and less planned, and foundationally closer to a full wardrobe as opposed to a full narrative. The signature Posen elements are all there with a sense of spontaneity and clarity of vision. If there is a grand narrative in each artists vision, then this collection fits in nicely with Posen’s previous work yet stands out with a sense of purpose.
