Season's Round Up # 18: JASON WU SPRING-SUMMER 2013
A few words come into mind when I viewed Jason Wu's SS2013 RTW Women's Collection - black, white, lace, leather and hot hot hotness all summer long! If these weren't enough to make you lust after his upcoming designs, then I don't know what would!
The collection has stayed true to Wu’s key strengths - high-waisted shorts, bodysuits, A-line skirts, sleeveless sheaths, and prim collared blouses. What made it unique and different this season is the distinct combination of leather & lace; making the collection evoke a sense of dominatrix and pin-uppy feel. But I think what made me enamored with his designs would be the last few pieces he showed on the runway - couture-ish creations that portray a sense of whimsy and girlish flirty-ness, unlike the rest of the collection. Yet in spite of that, power was definitely something it did not lack. And that was how he threaded it all – with girl power. Sheer genius if I say so myself. And that my friends is how you make and end a show!
