NYFW - Jason Wu

Our next Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week runway report comes courtesy of Mr. Jason Wu.  Inspired by the Helmut Newton exhibit at the Grand Palais in Paris, Jason Wu went dark for his Spring/Summer 2013 collection.  

Sticking to a palette of mostly black, white, and nude (with the occasional pink and navy blue) allowed Jason to infuse this collection with his signature tailoring and ladylike playfulness.  It was a subtle, intriguing balance of 1950s Hollywood starlet and modern dominatrix, a word I never thought I would use on this site.

Although not initially my style, I have found myself going back again and again to look at these pictures and have slowly, but surely fallen in love.  Once again Jason Wu takes me to a place I've never been before and I have loved it all the way...  

We'll have more from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week later today and, if you'd like, you can see the rest of Jason Wu's Spring/Summer 2013 collection at
