With Resort, Jason Wu continued the exploration into daywear and separates that he began last season. This isn't to say that Wu has abandoned his love affair with confectionary gowns and tulle. Both a pleated dress in red and pink makeup shades and a raw-edged mint-and-ecru number with hand-tucked details prove otherwise. However, rounding out the after-eight selection was practical daytime fare: high-gauge knits, cardi-jackets with grosgrain-covered buttons, and full-legged pants. The designer should (pardon the pun) woo new customers with this collection.
