Yesterday, Jason Wu presented his SS18 collection during NFW. He opted out of a showing back in June and decided to combine his pre-collection with the SS offering. “This is the first time in a long time I didn’t feel like I was playing catch-up,” he noted. Wu presented a collection that can best be described as a laid back chic, featuring the use of jersey that gave evening pieces an athletic feel. The collection was inspired by Madame Grès, who is admired for her groundbreaking pleating techniques. Be that as it may, the collection’s pleats, twists and what have you, give it a complicated feel, with gowns often not flattering. That being said, we are strong fans of the simpler pieces, like the knitted jumpers. See the full collection here.
