New York: On top of the incredible growth of his eponymous line, Jason Wu has also garnered a gig at famed knitwear house TSE. For this capsule collection the young designer used the high-quality cashmeres for which the label is known, injecting them with his signature ultra-femme style. While the cashmere took the spotlight, Wu also incorporated fox fur, chiffon and cotton shirtings into the mix. The fox fur was used in horizontal strips for a cozy winter coat, and button-up white shirts lent sophistication to the looks. Irregularly pleated and distressed chiffon was used for fluttering underlayers and tiered skirts, allowing the designer’s affinity for a bit of froth to show through. Slouchy pants, boxy tees and oversized blazers gave the collection a relaxed undertone. Textured pieces let the beauty of the knits shine; nubby bouclé and loop tape yarn techniques were dimensional and eye-catching. While TSE has collaborated with several designers in the past few years, Jason Wu seems to be a perfect fit, and his collection hit all the right notes.
