Michelle’s go to guy presents an incredibly well tailored collection, as always, but infuses his looks with the addition of lace!
Jason Wu‘s ascent into the upper pantheon of American designers continued with his collection for Fall 2011, presented on Feb. 11. The mix of perfectly tailored slacks and coats, along with delicate blouses, were all taken in a new direction with the addition of lace — of which the designer used over 15 types! It could be found on the sleeves of coats, sides of skirts and even veiling some of the models’ eyes. There is no doubt this is a collection any woman, especially Michelle Obama, would yearn for.
Jason also showed his now signature feather cocktail dress, in nude and black, along with two jaw dropping finale looks. The first, a black dress that could have by any other measure been mundane, came alive with a gold belt and thigh high slit. Finally, the strapless red gown that closed the show, also accessorized with a gold belt, will no doubt be finding it’s way on to the red carpet, or the oval office, in almost no time it seems.
