(NEW YORK) “I think Karmen got a little too excited and walked out twice,” said Jason Wu while discussing the model that opened his first resort runway show. And there was a lot of youthful spontaneity that meshed well with Wu's more formal, uptown side, resulting in a 2010 collection, inspired loosely by Iris Apfel, that just felt right, all the way to the custom shoes by Bruno Frisoni. The designer signature crystal-embedded dresses were juxtaposed with featherweight blazers, trim trenches, and flattering tulip skirts. Overall, the length was shorter compared with the designer’s last few offerings, but that small change will appeal to Wu's loyal average-height clients as well as the towering chicettes and models that wear him when the photographers are looming. It's clear that Wu is intent of building a brand that will rely not strictly on his always-interesting palette, spot-on tailoring, and intelligently draped columns--with each season, the signature basics build right alongside of the press book.
