Fashion Fades; Style is Eternal

American Royalty.

"It's about how to be dressed up and poised, but still cool; Patti Smith in a gown and Penelope Tree in a trench,"
says Zac Posen.

The inspiration for Zac Posen's Resort 2012 collection is "American Royalty," and Absolute Royalty it is. The silhouettes in this collection are created out of pure brilliance and playfulness, making it one of the best collections to date. As Fashionologie states in their write-up on Posen's masterpieces, Zac Posen's silhouettes are "a study in contrasts: a soft, buttercup-printed chiffon dress is gathered into bodice-hugging seams, only to be let loose in a flurry of ruffles at the hip; a peplum waistcoat with a second-skin fit gets a hit of volume at the sleeves with tiers of unfinished chiffon ribbons..."

I couldn't explain it better myself. This collection is really all about structure and even intricate textile details. Not quite as much emphasis on color in Posen's collection...but yet you get a few pieces with this vibrant deep red or pale blue and it's breathlessly stunning.

Take a look at some of the beautiful creations...
