Jason Wu Spring 2011

September 11, 2010

I fell in love this morning. This kind of love is head-over-heels, can’t-get-my-mind-off-it, already-picking-out-engagement-ring type of love. I was caught off guard; after a relaxing morning of sleeping in and enjoying a breakfast of yogurt and coffee, I was flipping through the NYFW runway collections on Style.com. I found a few looks I liked at BCBG Max Azria, wasn’t too enamored with anything at Costella Tagliapietra, and then… boom. Love.

Jason Wu’s Spring 2011 collection soared onto my (incredibly picky) top ten list of favorite collections, right up there with Versace S/S 09, Dior RST 10, and Cynthia Steffe F/W 10. It was love at first sight. Although it was practically painful to do so, I narrowed down the collection’s thirty-seven looks to just twelve to share with you. Here are my favorites:

Feminine Spin on Trousers:

Va-va-voom Violets:

Frilly Cocktail Dresses:

Beautiful Ballgowns:

The collection is so unabashedly feminine, yet it flirted with menswear and flaunted sexy sheers for day and night. Jason Wu designed with his target Wu girl clearly in mind: someone so confident in her brazen femininity that she doesn’t mind dipping into menswear for the day, someone who loves color too much to wear neutrals all season, someone who’s a risk-taker and a little bit quirky, someone who eschews minimalism for youthful, chic adornment and indulgence.

As always with Wu, the question is: What will our First Lady wear? Michelle Obama practically put Wu on the map. I can easily see her in the striped top with the blue-gray trousers; the violet floral dress seems as if it were made just for her; the black dress with the floral top (lined, of course!) would be a spirited choice for a more formal event.

And on the off chance that Michelle decides against wearing Wu this season, I would be more than happy to take the collection off her hands – really, it would be no trouble at all…
