Wu exotica

Right from the very first glance, I could see Jason Wu's Fall collection befall on the street with the stunners  wearing this collection's jackets and on the red with stars donning the seductive slit dresses. The military jackets got me excited, it was an instant seller. I enjoyed the juxtaposition of quilted armor, lace and epaulet on the jackets. The dominatrix ponytail looks sleek and disciplined, creating the right amount of seriousness to the whole look and the tassle accessories involve a hint of womanhood and balance the look.  
Inspired from his root and his culture, Jason Wu created this collection keeping in mind the Chinese military and Qing dynasty. The embroidery on the dresses mainly comes from the opulence of the dynasty and the tassled hats were worn by court official that denoted their rank (they'd be sixth in rank).    

Every look is very structured and fitted, very conventional, very strict. Jason Wu does not shy away from expressing the aristocracy of China during that era. The gold buttons, the use of velvet, fur on the sleeves and the hem of the jackets, and the use of rich brocade on the dresses - all speak of the last Chinese dynasty history has come to know that commanded instant power and respect.

The mini cloud print pants are epic!!! I have always liked Wu's aesthetic of design. Similar to my personal style.
