The Exclusives line will specialize in carrying popular silhouettes that can be custom-made in different colors and prints to fit individual retailers' needs. “As the collection grows, the runway shows start to become more directional,” said Wu. “This way, there will always be our bestseller pieces in the showroom. It will allow me to become more experimental, and then to take, perhaps, a color or print from the runway and make it in a silhouette that we know sells well.” The collection wholesales from $390 to $780.
On the flip side, Wu's mink-heavy 15-piece fur line will be part of his Fall collection. “It will be fur garments mixed with fabric. In certain stores, they would hang with clothes, and in bigger department stores, they could hang in the fur departments,” said Wu.
