c. 2006 Zac Posen Splash Paint Multicolored Print Silk Lamè Bolero Jacket
CFDA award winning designer Zac Posen is noted for his highly sculptural designs, and structured silhouettes that tend to accentuate the décolletage of the wearer. Having been born, and educated in New York, Posen's designs tend to reflect sharp architectural lines through precise tailoring, whilst evoking an aura of diversity, and whimsy through the usage of striking prints, and colors.
All designers have a signature, and the bolero jacket is surely one of Posen's staple pieces. From understated grey mink, to extravagant ostrich feathers, a stylish bolero may be found in a number of Posen’s collections. This bolero jacket, presumably from Posen's Spring 2006 line features a deep green, orange, and red paint splash print on a pleated white silk ground striped with gold lamé which creates luxurious veining throughout.
Both front panels of the bolero display an intricate sunburst pleating detail around a moderate sized O-rings further marrying the elegant technique with, the refined chaotic motif of the fabric. The delicate silk drapes effortlessly from the shoulders emulating the action-painting inspired print. A chic bolero adds an element of class to any ensemble easily transforming a day outfit into a charming evening look.
