Jason Wu is the Canadian Fashion Designer based in New York who is behind the most mesmerizing Michelle Obama’s outfits. For the records, Jason Wu is the one who designed her dresses for the first and second inauguration of the American President Barack Obama.
Jason Wu went in public with his Pre-Fall 2017 Collection back in January. Now since the collection is available for purchasing in stores Jason Wu came out with more pictures.
The main element that defines his Pre-Fall 2017 Collection is asymmetry present in almost every of his fall designs.
Once again Jason Wu showed why the former First Lady was choosing his designs before others. His creations carry a timeless elegance perfectly suitable for business women who are not afraid to express their individuality with style.
Most of his Pre-Fall 2017 Collection dresses are below the knee or long dresses. In order to bring a cheerful note in the cloudy fall days, he went all floral with a couple of his designs. He also featured several discreetly transparent dresses.
In terms of color, most of his creations are pretty settled and don’t involve more than 2 colors. Anyway, there are couple pieces that feature a stronger print. Colors range from deep orange tones to burgundy, khaki, silver, and black.
Most of his hems are handkerchief and the general spirit of the collection is relaxed but with a dose of formality.
Wu explained that his intention with this collection was to create clothes that are wearable and suitable for any season: “What’s important today is the sense of ease that women are looking for. Clothes have to be multi-seasonal and multi-occasional; no one’s changing several times a day.”
Wu has the unique ability to add a touch of femininity even when he uses mostly a pinstriped suiting fabric.
His fall collection features only a few pieces that are on the edgier side. Namely, the discreet corset lacing brings a dose of sexiness and defines the women’s silhouette enough to fire the imagination.
The silver wrinkly fabric he incorporated in a couple of his designs perfectly breaks the monotony of the suiting fabric that dominates in the collection.
His fall designs aren’t revealing much, but details such as naked shoulder, asymmetrical necklines, and corset lacing add a relaxed, appealing note to the whole story.
With all that being said, it’s probably just a matter of time when we will get to see the former First Lady in some of Wu’s creations again.
