Fashion designer Jason Wu, best known for designing looks for Michelle Obama for two inaugural balls, debuted his lingerie-inspired Spring 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week on Friday.
Going in a bit of a different direction than the norm, Wu opted for light, pastel colors and flowy, sheer fabrics, giving both a sexy and relaxed look. He managed to steer away from the often bold blues and reds that are more typical of his pieces, remarks Senatus.
"I've been loosening up in the last couple of seasons ... just taking the idea of the body in a very different way," Wu told AFP (Agence France-Press) after the show, reports Global Post.
Some of his pieces included lace-up corsets paired with military jackets and trench coats, as well as more relaxed looks such as slouchy sweaters paired with skirts.
Wu was recently appointed to the title of creative director for Hugo Boss women's wear. It seems that his success has only climbed higher since designing the beautiful draped, one-shoulder chiffon gown and shimmering, bold red gown for Michelle Obama the past two inaugurations.
Keep an eye out for Wu's collection come Spring 2014.
