Spring Break+Jason Wu Fall 2012

Apr 27, 2012

Over Spring Break, as I have gushed over before, my family and I ventured to the exquisite, regal country of China. The great opulence of historic China blended beautifully with modern glamour throughout the city. Beijing was brimming with overwhelmingly magnificent culture across every street and inside every monument. Walking through the city, in the blissfully cool wind, (a big change from Singapore's deep heat), I saw fashion inspiration everywhere. From colossal Alexander McQueen stores, to tiny boutiques full of second-hand neon pumps, the city had no lack of style. However, only one collection came to mind while I was on Spring Break: Jason Wu Fall 2012. 
Every shot taken by my much-loved iPhone of Beijing was reflected in a particular detail of Jason Wu's carefully crafted tribute to his country. Oriental patterns, imperial box clutches, and delicate tassel earrings accented each look throughout the collection. Silk was incorporated into the collection elegantly but with an edge, as shown through Wu's radiant wrap-around dresses in bold, candy-coated shades. The collection mirrored China's elegance and history perfectly-from the fire-engine red door (seen throughout Beijing) to the use of rich brocades and fabrics. Both culture and style played a dazzling role in Wu's Fall collection. Whenever I start to miss my wonderful trip over Spring Break, I can always turn to Jason Wu's collection to remind myself of the beauty in China's culture.

  2. great post- this is a very beautiful collection. Oriental-inspired fashion can sometimes look a bit kitsch, but Jason Wu got it just right.
