Here in New York designers are showing their resort collections with many more than usual opting for full-on seated fashion shows rather than showroom appointments—a three-week schedule that has Elle editor Robbie Myers wishing for more time in the office.
Helping lead the charge is Jason Wu, who staged his largest resort collection to date at the St. Regis hotel. “It’s a full collection, and it’s become one of our biggest seasons, and it’s really important," said Wu. His pleasing lineup of tweed short suits, straw boaters, striped pullovers, and jabot-adorned evening looks will no doubt help his growing international business. “I’ve been to Japan, I’ve been to China — I’ve been to six countries in the last month and a half,” Wu said of his company expansion plans.
