Zac Posen Splash Paint Multicolored Print Silk Lamè Cutout Back Dress, 2006
More readily known for his architectural stylings, Zac Posen has an almost unparalleled feminine aesthetic. As such, influence of design and art flow into his garments. Similar to several historical designers, Posen’s designs often play on very particular color schemes giving many of his looks an ethereal or other-worldly feel.
Done in a splatter painted silk, the beauty of the streaks of deep red, peach, grass green, yellow and gold lamé is found in the chaos. Horizontal ruching through the torso interrupts the print making it all the more dynamic as though it were an actual Pollack action painting. The serene green of the bodice provides visual relief from the movement of the remainder of the dress as it transitions into more excitement at the back.
The green bodice sweeps across the high back like wings as the print radiates around a keyhole. The low back cut out balances the exciting colors of the dress and the wearer's skin by showing off the décolletage, lower back, and legs.
