Taiwanese-Canadian designer, Jason Wu returned to the runway after over a year of being MIA. He was one of the few designers holding a physical runway, unlike the many virtual shows, because of the ongoing pandemic.
The Jason Wu Ready To Wear Collection features silk prints and other fine materials. We got to see a lot floral prints and bright colours. A girl’s delight!
Wu credited his absence to being tired and needing a time out. He got to have an August vacation in Italy and Majorca.
According to Vogue Runway, “Backstage Wu explained that most of the fabrics he used had been washed. The process cut the preciousness of silk habotai and other fine materials. In the silk habotai’s case, it gave a slim sheath a crinkly quality, where washing the satine of a strapless hourglass in a pretty withered floral print by photographer Maxime Poiblanc produced more three-dimensionality. Even still, the silhouette here was romantic and willowy, close to the body with flashes of upper thigh. Suits played a secondary role, but they were likewise cut quite lean. Wu paired them with matching bra tops in the au courant style.”
