Zac Posen Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Eyes on the runway, we cannot help but feel pretty just by looking at the latest from the Zac Posen spring/summer 2016 collection newly presented on the New York Fashion Week runway. With over 40 pieces to choose from, we’ve been presented with a feast of fashion that only Zac Posen can provide. This, of course, means that we had some rather high expectations given his innovative approaches to the dressmaking industry on stage as well, considering the LED dress made in partnership with Google that appeared this week through his diffusion line. This time around, however, it was simple and beautiful that he seemed to be aiming for, without the extravagance that Posen is renowned for. It appears that while the designer has beautifully dominated the red carpet, he’s gone for the domination of daywear as well with this particular line-up.

Spring is an interesting season and we end up seeing quite a few intriguing pieces all around that we cannot help but covet dearly. Who would not want a black cotton sundress that brings the 1960s to mind with its breezy skirts and focus on transparent detailing? Of course, not everything was as simple to the naked eye, and certainly not as simple to create as we saw the couture technique of floating seams with bugle beads on some of those evening dresses, despite the more relaxed fits Posen opted for. We noticed some stiffer pieces, particularly among the eveningwear, while many of the pieces had a silky flow that gave the garment an alluring effect.

We loved the use of peek-a-boo cut-outs here and there, including those where the skin of the abdomen appears in a triangle shape as the jacket worn on top and clasped at the neck falls open around the waist and legs. Black and white seem to the color trends here, with some navy blue and a pinch of red making their way into the rather spectacular line, including a darker blue hue to a gorgeous staple seam camisole with its matching pants we can totally see worn at the after party, even if it is not extravagant enough for the Awards ceremony. That and the guipure lace dress certainly made our days but among the sea of darkness, it was the simple red stiff A-line dress falling to the knees that caught our attentions best.

“The idea is to blend couture techniques into the daywear and in turn, bring the daywear comfort into after-dark dressing.” Well Mr. Posen, we daresay you have achieved your goal for the most part here, particularly with the inclusion of cording, hinge-stitching and a few other interesting couture techniques. Cottons and wool appear on stage, while there is a sense of floating softness in the air. There is nothing not to love about the Zac Posen spring 2016 collection and for us specifically, we feel that it appeals more directly to the overall masses, something that seems to also be trending on the New York Fashion Week this year.
