Viva Jason Wu

19 Sep

Jason Wu

This young designer’s creativity inspires me to no end. The consistency in his style, impeccable tailoring, that effort to add a fresh and different dimension to his designs, with clear inspiration; all result in pretty, very wearable pieces.

I was a bit taken aback by the thigh baring shorts that started the collection, that was his attempt at taking chances this season. True to his style though, he featured the delicately pretty ensembles that made us fall in love with him the first time.



Speaking of Spring 2012 though, I’m still trawling through the shows but i haven’t yet found my ultimate wow factor. Most of last Spring’s trends seem to be making the come back. As Cathy Horyn said though, let’s wait for the design power houses showing in Paris and Milan to tell us the game changing trends for next season.

Either ways, i’ll be back here talking about my ultimate wow factor collection once i find it!

My best of Jason Wu’s Fall 2011 RTW Collection

12 Feb

Well Duh! Fall 2011 Fashion Week debuted this week in New York and given that I’m a die-hard Jason Wu fan, he was the first guy I was checking out.

All i’m going to say is Simply Extraordinary.

Totally LOVE his use of lace. Impeccable tailoring, and sleek chic in every possible way. The Jason Wu woman has stepped up her elegance level by several notches and she maintains that demureness that makes her even more fetching.

I really have to say goodbye NYFW…with Herrera in tow

18 Sep

It was tons of great fashion at NYFW, obviously can’t blog about em all. I am partial to everything feminine and girly, so all things sleek, elegant, fitted, figure skimming, cinched at the waist, silky, sheer, whimsical, i love. And there were loads of it in New York this Spring/Summer.

So, to close off, here’s a collection that did justice to my style inclination. Signing off with Carolina Herrera

Christian Siriano...quite artistic, no real life here

Love this one by Marchesa

Another artistic one by Marchesa, will we be seeing this on the red carpet???

Marchesa really killed it didn't they? Lovely, absolutely breathtaking

Love what Gwen Stefani did with prints in her collection. She makes the tribal look come to life in a fun, effortless way.

Viva Jason!

17 Sep

Yeah, we all started checking him out since Mrs Obama. The 28 year old designer hasn’t stopped making the headlines and editorials since that signature ball gown. What I love about Jason Wu is his attention to the feminine silhouette, his designs are elegant and almost girly/romantic at the same time. Love his use of colour too, from rich jewel tones to pastels to reds. He is definitely the man. So back to the trending topic,  S/S 2011. Once again, absolutely love his collection. Completely ticks the uber stylish box and fits snugly with what I love about his style. Body flattering fit, smartly tailored pants, romantic blouses, love the use of bows and delicate florals. In real life though, I won’t be wearing those sheer blouses with nothing under. Not down with the public display of your bits

Here are my faves from his collection.
