Jason Wu A/W 2015
Mood board: Jason Wu continued to prove his mastery of modern simplicity with a confident A/W 2015 collection that spoke loudly in the most minimal of ways. The no-nonsense collection, which was made up of tailored dresses, trousers and midi skirts, struck a balance of strength and seduction - the only two words Wu sent out in his show notes.
Finishing touches: Working in a palette of moss green, jet, ice grey and red, Wu's austere silhouettes were injected with graphic flashes of skin. Cutaway backs appeared in business-appropriate dresses, thigh high slices cut through long skirts and gowns and plunging V-necks lured the eye.
Best in show: Blame it on the -12 degree weather, but Wu's outerwear offerings were especially enticing. Boxy, round-shouldered wool coats were both cosy and authoritative, especially when worn over lavish fur vests. Ladylike power dressing can be easy - Jason Wu has the proof.
