Zac Posen NYFW SS17: A House Built on Style

by Lotus Ladegaard

Zac Posen hardly needs any kind of introduction as one of the top American designers. He has a built a true American Fashion house in just 15 years. He is known for his artisanal craftsmanship, anatomical construction and textile manipulation. 

His SS17 collection consisted of many different looks from daytime wear to evening wear that will appeal to a very wide range of audiences. The colour palette was kept in dusted colour tones, yet it remained intriguing due to his choice of fabric; a very modern selection of embroidered- and manipulated fabrics that by the first look seemed heavy, yet it moved light and ethereal down the runway. Diagonal lines, pointed necklines and innovative use of seams, incisions and pleats made for a very coherent collection that had a little bit of everything for any kind of body type. 

With the SS17 collection, Zac Posen has created another wonderful body of work that is imaginative yet grounded in functionality. It is a happy medium between couture and everyday wear.
