INSIDE THE COLLECTION
A polished ease takes central focus at Jason Wu for his Spring 2018 collection. Jason wanted to focus on American Sportswear, one of the brands key principles, updated with modern sportif. The result was an ultra-feminine take on refined daywear characterized by pencil skirts and nipped waists, sensual drapes on silk jersey and peplum knits with a distinct nod to the brand’s roots in American Sportswear laced with couture craftsmanship. The sporty lean is further evidenced in ruched draw chords on luxe fluid jersey dresses, and intricate drapes on silk printed jersey with multicolor flower motifs inspired by Jason’s journey while creating his first fragrance. Parachute dresses in Seaweed and Powder Pink techno crinkle taffeta simultaneously evoke ease and elegance, emphasizing the confident sensuality of the Jason Wu woman. Tailoring in Pale Grey exemplifies the soft drapes commonly reserved for evening, and get a modernist edge when accented with metallic pearl snaps.
