After a bold outing of black, red, and white mini dresses for his last fall/winter collection, Jason Wu takes a serene, Zen-like approach to seasonal dress. Balancing the silky and weightless against the dense and masculine, Wu emphasizes a fluid silhouette and breathable lines in his sophisticated collection for Fall/Winter 2014. The presentation radiates subdued beauty in gemstone shades of smoky quartz, onyx, deep emerald, and amethyst offered in a variety of delicious, contrasting textures.

There is elegance on display for daywear with a simple selection of satin slip dresses, double-breasted wool coats, and cozy knitwear. In Wu’s world, elegant style isn’t reserved only for eveningwear, and he involves some very lovely long dresses in some of his best daywear options. It wasn’t all simple fare, however; Wu’s stiffly constructed, double-zipped, high-necked leather jacket with shaggy fur sleeves offered up a master class on structure and tailoring. This attention to detail is what makes an uncomplicated collection worthy of the label “high fashion”. Plush textures were tripled up on looks – like a velvet skirt paired with a Mongolian-wool-and-suede bomber jacket – while frocks and gowns sparkled with a light dusting of glitter. The hushed confidence of this collection gets high marks for its stylish restraint and incredible balance of tailoring, color, and seasonal appropriateness.
