Jason Wu’s pre-fall 2014 collection is elegant and casual at the same time. He surprised us by combining big loose sweaters with floral feminine dresses and masculine high heels. There is something adorably relaxed about it and it looks a bit like a crazy mixture of men’s and women’s fashion. Manly silhouettes are contrasted with very feminine details like florals and ruffles.
There are generally a lot of deliberately mismatched outfits and it all looks very refreshing. It is all about “the idea of coziness”, and “sweater dressing and hybrids”, as the designer himself puts it. The colors are dark and wintery from black and brown to brick red, yellow and forest green. On the other hand, fabrics are light and range from soft cashmere to lace and silk. There are also some interesting leather pieces such as the biker jacket which he teamed with ruffled skirts and high heels.
