Jason Wu Spring Summer 2013 Review

After viewing this collection someone commented that he is in love. I’d like to counter that and say he’s in lust. It’s quite obvious-to me anyway-that Wu has been watching way too much hardcore gay porn. Think brawny leather daddies in harnesses trampling each other with their boots and fists. That sort of thing. But of course there’s always the balance of the hard and the soft which is just so typical of designers. He’s married hard leather with delicate lace, crystals, and silk. Carolyn Murphy opened the show and she killed it in a form-fitting leather dress with a lace panel right under her tits. There were snug, flirty dresses in leather and silk with beautifully pieced lace trims at the hem which really put Wu’s workmanship on display. His attention to fit and cut is really quite spectacular and I think some of his peers should take notes because I’m seeing a lot of talent in New York but the execution is garbage.  
Wu’s vision and brand DNA is so evident that it’s great to see him take some chances and push himself to express a smutty side to his personality. It’s dirty slick.
