Jason Wu Resort 2013
Jason Wu's Resort 2013 collection was inspired by the work of artist Mike Libby, whose combination of watch parts with beetle and butterfly wings influenced Wu to examine the intersection of "nature versus man-made." The result lent itself well to Wu's customarily ladylike look, but with a twist. A sleeveless white shirt, for example, formed the bodice of a dress consumed by a floral-printed chiffon skirt. Also in the mix are clusters of custom-made Swarovski crystals embroidered onto tank tops, cocktail dresses, and handbags shaped like insect bodies.
