Loving…Jason Wu Fall RTW 2011
I have to preface this coverage of NYFW by stating that the Fall is not my favorite season either in real life or in fashion. I think the color palette goes to close to the subdued and I don’t really care too much for the over use of such fabrics as tweed, velour, and velvet. That being said, though, I do love certain aspects of the season and will happily wear my favorite fall trends when they’re done right. I haven’t been too impressed with the RTW Fall 2011 collections that have come out of NYFW just yet, but there are some gems that have tickled my fancy. One of them is Jason Wu’s collection. His looks always cater to my love for the classy and elegant.
Here’s some of my favorite looks…
Simply gorgeous. Some of my favorite fabrics are lace, chiffon, and satin, so I am swooning over this collection. I love the use of bold jewel tones (that Chartreuse is killing me!) and I think that the nod to 80’s shoulders (in the blazers) is just the right touch to a decade in fashion that is finally on it’s way out. If I still had my job in Corporate America, I would so incorporate many of these looks into my daily wardrobe. Actually, who says I have to be a desk to wear these?? Sassy tailored looks, here I come!
Bravo, Jason Wu…Bravo!
