Jason Wu F/W 11

Sadly, I had to discover that many many many of the F/W collections of this year are more than disappointing in comparison to their pre-fall ones, so it's a personal conflict within myself to write about some designers, when they didn't meet my expectations. I hope that at least some of my favourites (Balmain, McQueen, Hervé Leger) still keep their standards as high as they ever were but right now there is just one designer, that really hit them all so far at New York Fashionweek: Jason Wu.
My love to Wu was triggered just by the latest pre-fall collection and as it was confirmed by his f/w collection, I still have a reason to hope for similar good or even better shows to come.
Not that I wouldn't be more than happy and on cloud 9 having the chance to be at NYFW once in a lifetime, but as I can just pretend to be there by using's pictures and commenting about this or that collection, I take the right to judge with honesty.
So what is Wu's fall/winter about? First of all, I'd this collection defines itself of lace, transparency and other remarkable details. Balloonskirts in silk and some evening dresses heavenly made for goddesses are taking my breath away and it's even reinforced by the fact that Wu stayed classy while experimenting with unusual colours (such as the greeny-mustard or the blasting blue balloonskirts ) and the transparency-look. With this precarious look you often tend to fall in the cheap category if you don't have that certain feeling for it. And how Wu has it just shows itself by all the hot transparent blouses he combines in such a classic way that you may think about Coco herself in such an outfit at her peak in fashion.
My absolute favourite is the (how could it be different) black and white combined outfit (black trousers, white blazer - second row below).
With a pullover like the one in grey and its lace-details, Wu mixes some casualty, which makes it additionally a perfect meeting of different factors in one collection. And this is exactly his talent: The ability to mix various materials and still remaining a symbiosis within this collection. There is no piece, which I personally would consider as unsuitable to all the other little masterpieces of his work.
And finally, as already mentioned, we also have these wonderful dresses perfectly made for the Oscar-night. If I'd be Nicole Kidman, Sandra Bullock or someone else who's worthy to be invited then I'd so go for one of these dresses. The red one is my favourite.
