Jason Wu Spring 2012
>> Jason Wu's Spring 2012 runway could have been treacherous — it was slick, white, and texturized like shingles — but the models made it through like pros, minus a slight slip-up or two. Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, and Liu Wen trailed out in a collection rife with peplums and mullet hemlines — the latter on jackets, skirts, and even evening gowns.
The theme for the season, Wu said, was “clean and couture — but with some very quirky elements.” Hence the Pop Art colors — chartreuse, "shocking pink," and electric blue; a collaboration with New York graffiti artist Kaws that produced the floating petal print used throughout; and the appearance of sporty "chiffon" windbreakers. Wu also worked with Tom Binns — the jewelry designer's first collaboration in a decade — on swingy long earrings with clusters of safety pins.
