Wu’s Pop Art Spring – For spring 2012, Jason Wu delivered a collection that juxtaposed muted hues with a spring palette, giving the feminine dresses a look that that could easily transition from day to night. Starting off with retro, 40s inspired silhouettes, Wu’s protagonist brings a bit of toughness to the new season in the form of leather accents, spiked hair pieces and dramatic makeup. Wu notes that this season’s designs are inspired by pop artist Kaws. The influence can be seen in speckled prints that give way to bold hues ranging from blazing blue to canary yellow. Towards the end, shapes become more structured including heavy ruffles that brought a sense of haute couture elegance to Wu’s already classic aesthetic.

Although most well known for his sophisticated day wear, designer Jason Wu took a foray into evening wear for his fall 2011 showing at New York Fashion Week. Working with delicate lace, Swarovski crystals and feathered embellishments, the new collection looked ready for a night out on the town with its sweeping gowns and strong suiting in a muted, more mature color scheme.

Looking towards the spring with a soft and feminine vision, the most recent collect from Jason Wu features pleated garments with a hint of school boy fantasy found in tweed jackets, crisp button-ups and corsage style brooches. Accenting a muted color palette, models walked down the runway in stripes, floral prints and oversize bows for yet another season of womanly sophistication from the American label.
