JA­SON WU

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - THE NEWS -

The artis­tic di­rec­tor of Boss on the clean lines of his favourite ar­chi­tects for Au­tumn/Win­ter ’14. It was the DNA of the Hugo Boss brand, which dates back to 1924, that pro­vided the start­ing point for Ja­son Wu’s first col­lec­tion. Look­ing to the la­bel’s long­stand­ing suc­cess in menswear, Wu drew from his love of travel and ar­chi­tec­ture to cre­ate his vi­sion. “I spend a lot of time in Europe in my new role as artis­tic di­rec­tor of Boss wom­enswear,” says the New York-based de­signer. “I find it so in­spir­ing – the cul­tures, the ar­chi­tec­ture, and the fash­ion.” The work of Nor­we­gian ar­chi­tect Sverre Fehn and the clean lines of Por­tuguese ar­chi­tects Manuel and Francisco Aires Ma­teus in­spired sharply tai­lored pieces, but fem­i­nin­ity was equally im­por­tant to Wu, known for his lush gowns as worn by first lady Michelle Obama for both of the pres­i­dent’s in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­monies. “The white dress on my mood­board was the in­spi­ra­tion for the open-back se­quin dress worn by Edie Camp­bell,” he says. “It stands for the fem­i­nine side of the col­lec­tion.”
