Jason Wu: Oscar de la Renta Heir Apparent?

>> If Alexander Wang is becoming the heir apparent to Marc Jacobs's downtown cool, on the polar opposite spectrum, Jason Wu is drawing comparisons to Oscar de la Renta — logical, since he seems to have taken over from de la Renta as dresser of the First Lady.

Commenting on the subject after Wu showed his Fall 2009 collection, both Los Angeles Times — "It's easy to see why Wu has been compared to Oscar de la Renta. The superb workmanship on his clothes is evident, which is wise in this economy"; and Cathy Horyn of the New York Times — "Without exactly duplicating the look of Oscar de la Renta, his clothes make you think of that style. This is not a negative quality; Mr. Wu’s designs seem reality-tested." [LA Times, NY Times]
