I’m kicking off this season’s Fashion Week coverage with Jason Wu‘s New York show for AW14/15. I was particularly attracted to the way that Wu took a more androgynous approach to glamour – shapes were long and lean rather than full and feminine for his signature elegant evening wear.
Black, silver and petrol blue were the colours of the collection. With 1940s meets 1990s styling, bias cut dresses with spaghetti straps and velvet gowns along with some seriously luxe suiting was order of the day. Dazed magazine suggested this collection was reminiscent of 90s Gwyneth Paltrow – think slinky metallics and sinuous gowns.
Overall, a very likable collection From Jason Wu.
