When we asked Jason Wu backstage to sum up his fall collection in one word, he responded with “effortless.” “This season is more of a Kate Moss effortless cool. A
get out of bed and ready to go look,” explains Wu. “Key colors include red, a golden mustard yellow, metallic, navy and black. The day meets night look is rendered in satin, with Manolo Blahnik boots and buckles.” Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni says for this collection, “to achieve that black smudgy rock & roll Kate Moss out and about look, the mascara is heavy on the eyes with contouring.” “The hair is parted in the middle for that return to grundge look,” says hair stylist Jimmy Paul.

Jason’s collection was dressed up this season, with basket weave dresses and coats and a butter yellow silk tulle and chiffon gown with jet mink coat as a key look. Fabrics include brocade, cashmere, faille, jersey, satin, organza and mink. Key details were beaded collars, metallic buttons, quilted beading and metallic and satin bodices. Must-have pieces include coat dress with mink cuffs, empire dresses, gold satin dress with pleated skirt with a jet mink crop jacket, ¾ sleeve metallic or satin trench coats and chiffon gowns. This collection is great for any downtown girl ready to take on the nightlife.
