First Look: Zac Posen's New Bridal Collection

If there's one thing you can count on from Zac Posen (who's pictured above with Brides Editor in Chief Keija Minor), it's an impeccably tailored, ultra-glamorous gown. For his third season producing a coveted wedding dress collection for David's Bridal, Posen continued to incorporate the best from his red carpet tenure into stunning aisle-ready gowns. The finished product, unsurprisingly, is ultra-sophisticated, timeless wedding dresses that incorporate some art deco details and classically feminine lines.

While his overall, instantly recognizable aesthetic remained the same, there were some new details to note. He took his signature visible seams to the next level with cross-diagonal ribbons on the bodice of one gown, and an incredible amount of converging lines another lace one. If it weren't for the romantic florals underneath, you'd think the triangular piping was a close-up look at the Chrysler building. The pin-tucked, geometric tailoring provides a vintage air with the added, flattering bonus of texture.

It was exciting to see the king of satin play around with lace this season, too. Of course, while he dabbled with the oh-so-popular illusion necklines and soft, flowing lace mermaids, he stayed true to himself: Even the most bohemian of his designs featured plenty of 1930s-inspired elements such as a bustier-style bust, pin-tucked pleats, and architectural lines featured throughout. 

It wouldn't be Zac Posen, though, without one satin stunner. This season, it came in the form of a bustled ball gown with a corset-like bodice. Show-stopper, indeed.
