The 29-years-old designer decided to turn to his roots to take inspiration from a culture which has so much to offer to the world. Jason Wu wanted to breathe life into his Eastern spirit, therefore he decided to travel to Taiwan. The designer revealed that, “I went back to Taiwan, where I was born, a year and a half ago”. He added, “I realized I was ready to take on one of the biggest subjects I grew up with, how does a Chinese designer do ‘China’? I’ve lived in America, Canada, and Japan, but to come back to this means so much to me.”
The Jason Wu fall 2012 shoes collection illustrates the main inspiration of the style creator who decided to concentrate on more luxurious and ultra-refined design patterns. The sharp silhouettes teamed up with a limited and dark chromatic spectrum all make reference to the Qung dynasty, a 1932 movie called ‘Shanghai Express’ and Mao’s military force. Instead of sticking to traditional and monotonous elements, Jason Wu wanted to add a modern twist to all these amazing accessories.
The ultra-sophisticated embellishments, bead and quilting details all reflect the unique style vision of the young designer. The Jason Wu girl of the moment has the chance to join the army of marching supermodels by sporting some of these gorgeous ankle boots and strappy sandals.
