What happens when you mix Zac Posen’s dreamlike creations with some good old Hollywood vibes? Whoever is going to choose and wear one of the latest Truly Zac Posen spring 2017 bridal collection’s proposals, will surely find out what it means to get married feeling like a Fifties movie-star diva.
While sartorially-speaking some frocks did not differ that much from those of the last year, Zac Posen focused more on mermaid silhouettes in this collection, as well as cascades of tulle and sweetheart necklines, generously adorning the gowns with minuscule crystals that add an extra ray of shine to the already boldly colored proposals. The unconventional total-black proposals feature delicate cascades of crystals and glittery sequins, inevitably making us wonder why black is traditionally avoided as a color during weddings.
As usual, Posen’s Truly collection is launched for David’s Bridal, the largest bridal retailer in the United States that daily attracts shoppers from all around the world (not just for their wedding days but for any special occasion too). Posen, who describes his Truly line as a ‘love note to a bride on her most beautiful day’, for this collection recreated a moment to cherish and celebrate femininity as well, accentuating the curves through the sinuous lines, at the same time without missing the occasion to add a touch of quirkiness to better embrace any kind of personality out there. That is why the wedding dresses in this line range not only from off- to satin bright white, but also come in dusty lavender hues, the aforementioned ultra-glamorous black and adorned with floral patterns at times.
Geometry plays a huge role within the collection too, and can be seen both in the silhouettes and the embroidered designs. As for the common silhouettes used this time, Posen chose to emphasize hourglass figures and the waistlines, focusing on structured, clean-cut gowns and exquisitely beaded bustiers. He even went further with the Fifties mermaid-style by deconstructuring the gowns and letting the many loads of organza drop at different levels. That might be challenging for those who are not blessed with super-long legs, but a pair of stiletto pumps can always make things work for the better.
Necklines are one of the main focal points, coming embellished with layers of sequins, long sleeves made of a transparent lace material and, of course, floral embroideries, which add a touch of sophistication to the entire collection. Wrapped tops hug the figure, perfectly defining what Posen means by saying that he wants to celebrate the women’s bodies, while chiffon gowns satisfy the tastes of those who like their dream wedding dress to be billow. If you can’t decide yourself between a traditional wedding dress or an unconventional, one-of-a-kind proposal, the Truly Zac Posen spring 2017 bridal collection may definitely help you make the ultimate decision!
