Pre-Fall 2012 - Jason Wu

Caitlin Surakitbanharn

the return of high decadence. opulence. drama. royal elegance.  pick any word or phrase listed there - or pick them all, and you've got Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2012.  last season's foray into downtown edge is in the rear view mirror, and in its place: houndstooth tweeds, navy and red windowpane plaid, fur trimmed hoods, beautiful black embroidery and embellishment, dramatic chiffon gowns in deep, rich colors, foiled jacquard pants and jackets, and a stand-out cocoon-cape in beautiful camel wool (probably cashmere wool) with black lattice flowers embroidered over the shoulders.  every piece is luxurious and special.

the collection is enormous, a full 35 looks - showing that Wu is understanding that Pre-Fall and Resort collections are now equally as important as the Spring and Fall collections, and even more impressive, there are no weak outfits in the bunch.  the pants are particularly striking; paired with sporty knit striped sweaters, two-toned tops, and a grey boyfriend blazer with camel colored lapels - Miss Wu can still be sporty, even while lapping in luxury.






dresses: both day and eveningwear, as always, were the collections strong point.  the gowns are stunning and are sure to end up on red carpets in the coming awards season, and the day-dresses are perfect for the ladies who lunch set, as well as probably the First Lady and young starlets looking to turn heads at their movie premieres.  a handkerchief hemmed cocktail dress with a fabulous metallic leafed necklace neckline and a full-length black silk taffeta gown with a red embroidered bodice and train trailing behind it both truly shine.










another homerun for Team Wu.
