High-end labels are already putting their best new season goodies forward. The Z Spoke by Zac Posen label puts a myriad of spectacular options forward for fashionistas to enjoy. The vast majority of the options are subtle enough to be worn on a day to day basis yet still have a powerful punch when it comes to showing trend awareness. The abstract geometric vibe that has dominated many of the most important runways this season is also reflected in the new handbag designs.
One thing that’s fairly surprising about the new collection is that compared to the Z Spoke fall/winter 2012 handbags from the label, the approach is much more dramatic in this collection although one might expect it to be the other way around. Either way, the new looks are perfect for making a statement precisely because of this interesting particularity. It seems that very few things can equal the statement making potential of animal prints and the label confirms the popularity of this idea by including some interesting alternatives that bring these fab elements back into the spotlight.
Structurally speaking, there are no significant differences compared to previous releases from the label. The clear lines, the perfect proportions between tones and a concern with creating the right contrasts are all still kept as reference. Still, a new style element is added for more impact: tassels, which are the most striking added detail in the new collection. Chain bags are continuing to be a popular choice for the season. The added elegant touch is a highly desirable trait and a hot choice this season.
From a chromatic standpoint, the palette is fairly restricted. It seems, however, that metallic touches are still a viable choice for those who look for a touch of glam for the new season. There are also a multitude of options for those on the other side of the spectrum who want versatile tones and maximum functionality in addition to a classy look. Keeping things fun yet practical is definitely a great strategy for making a purchase you’ll be happy with long after the current fads will be gone.
