Good Girl Gone Bad or Bad Girl Gone Good? Jason Wu Spring/Summer 2013

Trends No Comments by dalia

Jason wu , who is known for his prim and proper designs has taken his Spring/Summer 2013 collection to an entire new level and we LOVE it!  With the famous Helmut Newton as his inspiration, what could be the outcome? Wu’s soft feminine tailored spin to the provocative sexual fetishism that Helmut Newton captured and injected so beautifully into mainstream photography.

Some of our favorites from Wu’s Romance meets erotic love…

Voluminous tulle skirt with elegant leather harnesses.

Full skirted leather mini with laser cut  flowers

Tailored fitted Dress with black widow netting mixed with leather and lace.

Stay ahead of the trends and shop our inspired picks from Wu’s collection:

 

Black Lace Romance Dress $70

Triangle Mesh Dress $65

Denim Tulle Romance Jumpsuit $89

Black Leather Shorts $47

 

Black Isabelle Lace Dress $69

Now have fun and play around by styling these pieces with your own leather studded belts and/or separates to re-create the romance meets erotic love feel that Wu has executed so graciously.

Dotted, striped, color or just plain pattern all over; a great ornate short adds instant appeal to any outfit! This is a no-brainer way to make an impact with even your most casual pieces giving your outfit chic simplicity.

His first dip in the industry was  his internship at Allure Magazine and later the Creative Director of W where he helped create a new feel for the magazine. He wrote reviews at WWD for 10 years and he took a leap with Vitals, his magazine that did not survive the recession and left him with no plan b.

Now he hosts All On The Line which airs Season 3 on the Sundance Chanel.Zee also gets in front of the camera for on screen appearances on Ugly Betty and reality series The City.

Currently, he continues on his every changing career path as Television Director and Creative Director of Elle Magazine. From styling and run-throughs, to photo shoots, meetings, filming and red carpet events; Zee’s career description is anything but a constant .

 

In response to knowing when to move on in life Zee said,

“Its like dating, you’ll know when to break up.”
