For Pre-Fall, Jason Wu clings to the easy, breezy silhouettes he put forth for his spring 2014 offering, and it all looks extremely comfortable.
Wu keeps things decidedly autumnal with a moody color palette and dark floral pattern mixing, pairing airy ruffled dresses with masculine footwear. A few tailored jacket and pants combos serve as alternatives to flowing silhouettes. There are separates here with which you can build your wardrobe, as well as some key statement items well worth the splurge, like a black leather zipper pencil skirt that needs to be mine.
Chunky knits layered over dresses give this collection a street style appeal, which is sure to resonate with Wu’s younger audience. The styling is effortlessly aspirational, yet accessible, poised to draw in plenty of customers .
Wu had me at the first chunky knit. I love how he plays with hard and soft here. I could see any of the solid or colorblocked gowns on Lupita Nyong’o.
