Jason Wu Spring 2011

I must admit that was quite pleasantly surprised by Jason Wu.  I couldn’t stand his collection last season.  It was a tribute but a bit of a miss hit.  But he’s done so well this season.  He opened with Joan Smalls and closed with the ever popular Karlie Kloss.  As Vogue.com puts it “for inspiration, Wu said he’d looked to the seventies and forties, and the vivid floral paintings of the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. The flowers and the color brought out print dresses with multi-petaled skirts, silk city sarongs, and chiffon blouses.  It’s all very mature, rationally conceived, and increasingly precise in cut and fit—something he’s working at, hard.”  It’s quite the opposite of conservative minimalist that’s been displayed in fall.  The attention to detail is excellent.  Overall, Jason Wu has stuck to his particular aesthetic.  It’s growth in skill but not in creativity.  To be fair, he’s quite young.   This is a lovely offering from a young designer who’s had a lot of acclaim and critique both on his young shoulders.
