Jason Wu Spring Summer 2012

Here we go…spring summer 2012 coverage begins!

I usually love Jason Wu‘s collections because he is a modern, young Oscar de la Renta, dressing the society girls in classic, elegant, dresses that feel somehow young. But this collection featured a slew of high waisted hot pants, and not only am I bored to death of them, but they just don’t suit his brand. This, combined with the fact that a few of his pieces resembled Giambattista Valli’s work, resulted in a weaker than usual collection. But there were still quite a few of his beautiful dresses and separates.

I love…

a beautifully tailored jacket, what a lovely sleeve.


the lovely effect of this print.


a gorgeous skirt and blouse combo. Love that peplum waist.


another amazing peplum, this time pretty in pink.

I loathe…


high waisted hot pants. We have seen enough of them over the past few years.


more hot pants, this time worn with an ugly sheer blouse.


that this beautiful skirt looks too much like Giambattista Valli.

    Actually, the last dress you mentioned resembles Valli reminds me of the dress SJP wore in an episode of SATC… I’ve attached it to the message. At least, the back is just the same. I mena, it’s ok to be a young Oscar… but it’s no good to just copy.

    I don’t think anybody can really make hot pants look high fashion…not even Chanel, as we saw in s/s 2011.

    It is too easy to stick a model in a pair of hotpants and make them look good.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing when I saw it!
