Numerous style creators consider the in-between-main-season period a time to devote for the great preparations to build up amazing ready-to-wear collections. Not Jason Wu, who decided to showcase his talent with an outfit parade at least said amazing. A prophetic designer who considers fashion the best means to live out his artsy fantasies. The Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2012 collection is a real manifesto of the talent to find the golden middle way between old time glamorous fashion trends and futuristic edge.
According to the young designer, “They are four equal seasons now,[…]This one, like the others, is about giving our girl luxury clothes. There’s nothing watered down”. The baroque hand-embroidery, beads and sequin details turn these apparels into “regal” creations as Wu called them. The chic jackets, flirty and sexy see-through blouses inject sophistication and elegance into the overall collection. Skimming through these amazing looks, everyone can notice that in spite of being inspired by the clothing style of an Indian maharajah and the amazing illustrations of Charley Harper, these outfits are still extremely wearable. As the style guru reveals, “Combining the two meant a strict silhouette with stately embellishments.”
Prints played an essential role in the creation of a diverse high-street collection. The “exploded houndstooth” was indeed the secret tool to immortalize the immaculately tailored dresses. In addition to these patterns, we have more classy tree designs which decorate silky frocks and blouses to preserve the feminine flair of the high-couture looks. Brocade is also one of the most impressive details used by Jason Wu to guarantee the smashing impression the gorgeous blue suit offers.
Printed coats and jackets radiate retro-glamor and prove to be ‘it’ cover-up options for every fashionista. None of the outfit elements from the collection is spared from refinement. Each of the basics along with accessories deserve special attention especially if you’re also fascinated by the crafty design talent of Jason Wu. Skip scanning this collection if you’re lusting after a ‘no-fuss’ wardrobe. As the highly acclaimed designer states, “People no longer dress for an occasion because every day is an occasion; there’s no hard line between day and evening.”
