I've Been Wu'd....

I paid an unusual amount of attention to the Spring 2009 RTW Collections at NY Fashion Week in September. Typically, I’m not a fan of the fashion calendar - clothing shown so far from the time it can actually be worn or purchased can cause an anxiety attack. But I’m so starved for something new and exciting to look forward to. I’ve written too many times to mention about the small cache of American design houses that have never let me down – Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan and Calvin Klein. As dependable as they are, I’m always looking for that one remarkable designer who can break through and give me the sophisticated classic lines that I love but with a bit of fresh whimsy. I think I found just that designer – Jason Wu.

Jason’s designs are at once ladylike and slightly devilish. The flowing A-line skirts he showcased are perfect for dressing up with one of his jewel-toned cashmere T’s and accesorizing with one of the color-filled bracelets from my Uncommon Splendors collection. In my opinion, his sheath dresses are his specialty. You can tell that he appreciates the female anatomy with his use of form fitting silhouettes and delicate detailing. I’ve never seen pleats and draping like his! The use of fun fabrics and brilliant colors give Jason’s clothing a quirky edge but it’s not overdone. Actually, it’s all perfectly Wu – nderful….
