My take on Jason Wu

Jason Wu might be a young designer but you couldn’t possibly tell that from his designs. This season was just another great one for Wu inspired by Helmut Newton and Lillian Bassman, the Taiwanese designer showed 43 proposals for Spring 2013, this September 7th at the Lincoln Center in New York City.
Known for his romantic designs, this collection he decided to take a different approach, mixing soft (lace) and tough (leather) materials, while still being able to capture his romantic mark that we all have fallen in love with.
Cropped tops, see-through blazers (with no pants!), leather dresses with laser cut designs, short, and I do mean really short, dresses, skirts and shorts, and of course the ultimate slim silhouette perfect for the business oriented yet fashionable ladies out there.
But what was so wonderful about this collection was his ability of combining masculine elements into the feminine silhouette. Who would have thought of putting leather suspenders with a see-through full skirt and an embellished tight body top? Uhm Mr.Wu did! And, it totally worked! He had a series of variation of this look, my favorite being the one showed on the right.
Jason Wu seems to be enjoying his time on the top of the runway, having once again not disappointed the audience. I’m sure everyone is already waiting impatiently for his next collection, but oh well it’s going to be a while now, so better sit tight and enjoy this one for now!
