'Austere elegance' Jason Wu told WWD when asked what his inspiration for his Fall 2014 show during New York Fashion Week today.
Jason is known for dressing FLOTUS Michelle Obama, Diane Kruger, the international fash-pack and other famous PYT's. For the past few seasons I haven't been too enamoured with his collections. He restored my faith with this collection. I adored the dark Old-Hollywood vibe.
Adriana Lima opened the show in a stunning black tuxedo. Marleine Deitrich sprung to mind with Look 8. A silver wide leg tuxedo and a battleship grey coat with faux fur accents. I am in love with this look and could very well look at it forevermore.
Look 11 also made my jaw hit the floor. After being startled by the sheer beauty of it, I snapped out of the trance and bubbled with excitement. The digital print silver with spaghetti straps and a cowl neck was so delicate. I may have to cheat on look 8 because of this. The bomber jacket with leather and faux fur accents was another favourite. The deep maroon asymmetric silk dress also made me desire for more. Teal (my favourite colour) looks also popped up.
Look 33, a black long sleeve floor grazing gown, was decorated with embellishing sequins and triangular side cut-outs. The model's hair added to the perfection. All the purple and digital printed finale gowns topped off a fantastic show from Jason.
Go Jason! Such a brilliant collection. Every look was perfect.
