I love when designers incorporate pastel hues, but what I love even more is when its done right! Keeping it preppy, Prell utilized gray, blue and pink as well as some deeper hues to show that the modern man can wear it all. Whether it’s monochrome or color-blocking, keeping it chic while displaying the, “renew of the morning sun” is the key for the collection.
Blue is very present within this collection and because he’s inspired by the morning sun, the blue fabric symbolizes the sky. I’ve always loved monochrome looks so mixing prints with solids as well as monochroming the prints excited me. It’s subtle, but chic.
Most of Zachary Prell’s pieces were made of linen and cotton to keep cool in the spring and summer.
The pink pastels which includes salmon pink symbolizes the moment that the sun is rising, therefore taking us from night to day, transitioning from the deeper blue skies to brighter hues.
Zachary Prell pairs the pastels with lighter hues taking us through a smooth transition. Color-blocking was in full effect as he utilized a transitional light gray which is always a great neutral color to pair with pastels, .
Wearing an all white look is classic! It never gets old and looks great on everyone but I’ve especially always appreciated all white looks on darker skin tones. I love the way it brings out the skin color displaying the rich melanin.
His collection also displays a few dark pieces to add a bit of variety for those who want to switch it up to darker colors.
