NYFW: Jason Wu Spring/Summer 2011

Jason Wu’s label is bursting forth in a madness of growth, and his show for Spring/Summer 2011, held as part of New York Fashion Week, was a gentle reminder of why he’s been so successful. Jason’s design ethos has always guided him to design for sophisticated women - it’s pretty much as simple as that. With such a refined vision, this particular collection has taken its call from the French Riviera at the height of it’s glamour - sheer striped tops mixed with tulle rosé skirts, floaty fabrics and florals were all accessorized with oversized sunglasses and chic, coloured turbans.

Added to this surge of femininity, was something that gave it a little tang. Crisp tailored trousers changed up the silhouettes, creating something more powerful and updated. The Jason Wu woman may wear the trousers, but she also wears what Wu does best: the red carpet worthy gown. One of the best came in a long, full-skirted purple dress with a sheer, sleeveless top half and feathered neckline. It was explosively feminine, modern and dramatic.

Wu’s collection was created out of lean cuts and a drop of sensuality. The key to his success, and this collection which will prolong it, is that Wu doesn’t think about what women want - he merely dreams of what women can be when clad in his romantic and empowering clothing, and that vision happens to be what women want too - to be sexy, edgy and glamorous - to strike fear into the hearts of men everywhere, and get their pulses racing.
