Jason Wu Spring ’13, Unbuttoned
Jason Wu has built his name on pretty and proper, but come New York fashion week, perhaps we will be seeing the designer flirt with another P word: provocative. In between back-to-back fittings, the designer revealed to Style.com that Helmut Newton’s notoriously seductive photographs are a key source of inspiration for his new collection. To set the mood, the designer enlisted La Perla this season to add a sexy touch to his super-feminine looks. “It has been an incredible experience collaborating with La Perla and having access to all the amazing things we could create with their specialized techniques,” he tells Style.com. “They understood my vision for the Spring collection and went above and beyond my expectations in creating the most luxurious accent pieces to go with my designs.” Above, a teaser of what’s to come (we wouldn’t want to give too much away just yet—that’s the art of seduction, after all).
