Jason Wu Spring Summer Collection 2014 in New York
Top model karen elson opens the show for jason wu and cuts a path across the golden neon tubes. this collection from the taiwanese designer takes inspiration from the world of lingerie and bases his work on the interplay between fluidity and transparency for ultra feminine figures. dresses with low backs, embroidered with sequins are matched with cropped jumpers or shirts. the spirit of the corset is found once again at the back of a wrap-around dress and these strips of satin create the look of a bustier dress. the designer, recently made artistic director of the hugo boss women’s department, emphasises the effect of lightness with a range of pale colours (ivory, gold, neutral) and delicate fabrics like silk chiffon that hint at the models’ underwear. michelle obama, this label’s number one fan will also appreciate the crepe tops with round collars and flat pockets, worn over shorts or trousers.
