Jason Wu staked his hold on the American fashion scene by creating clothes that women can live in. While some of those women happen to hearken from the upper echelons of celebrity, like Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kerry Washington, the rest of us also resonate with Wu’s accessible designs that keep in mind practical needs. Prepare to see Wu explode internationally now that he has sold a majority stake in his company to InterLuxe. This is a good thing for women all over the world – for whom he very consciously designs.
Spring/Summer 2015 proffered a safari twist on daywear basics – with abstract camo prints decorating safari jackets, slit skirts, and relaxed shirtdresses leading Friday’s show in New York City. Wu’s clothing was breezy and effortlessly elegant with soft fabrics and minimal embellishment to keep the overall looks sleek and professional. Head-to-toe navy separates, printed shift dresses, and low-slung wide-leg trousers are pragmatic choices for day, while micro-sequin draped frocks for evening stunned with their simplicity and shine. What is especially refreshing about Jason Wu’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is the lack of flashy trends – these are straightforward, stylish garments that real women will wear for more than just a single season. And if you’re looking for a wardrobe with mileage, Wu’s chic, sturdy looks are the ideal compliment.
