Decoding the Runway: Jason Wu S/S 2013

This isn’t his latest showing, but since we’re going through the hottest summer, I felt I should focus on the Spring Summer collections. Just the thought of looking at fall’s heavy fabrics have made me break into a sweat.

Jason Wu put up a dreamy erotic collection for spring summer, the dainty with the cheeky, this designer really stepped out of his element and went with the provocative. Let’s not forget this is the same designer who dressed Michelle Obama for the Inauguration Ball, and yet also slipped onto Rosie Huntington-Whiteley a lingerie-est ensemble.

A duality of aesthetic is what I most look for in any collection, every piece that came down the runway was something worth coveting. Nude and Black were the colours of choice, and how can you possible go wrong with a little leather thrown in there for added spice. The prettiness of a navy blue, star speckled dress was balanced by a S&M leather harness that brought a strength to the overall look.

The same can be said about the razor back sequined knit top worn with a flouncy net maxi skirt, that alone would have looked like it was meant for a ballet performance. However when worn with a sexy leather harness just took the entire look and sent it to high fahsion heaven.

The best look of the show however, is the one piece teamed with a black chiffon cover up. Swap the Bulky bag for a whip and you’ve got yourself one risque outfit. Are we happy to see the inner Wu dominatrix displayed? I say yes, pretty can take a back seat for a while.
