Designer: jason wulocation: industrial downtown warehouse, copper chandeliers, office chairs in three tonesinspiration: artisanship highlighted. jason wu continues to evolve the boss woman, inspired by archives and the savoir-faire of the house, while bringing it a new definition focus on: the ribs and curves. many pieces follow lines, done as rounded features.the dress seems to end as a ruffled tunic whilst being nipped in at the backnote: the mixture of fabrics, leather combined with crepe. the perfect black suit proposed this time in its coolest way, with loose trousersinterview from jason wu:i’ve really been playing with very straight and architectural lines for boss for the last 4 seasons. with the 50s i wanted to free that up a little bit and really work with the curves. there were a lot of curved lines that came from the idea of the 50s, with these shapes that are very womanly. i also wanted to do them in an architectural way that made sense for boss with a lot of frayed edges, throwing in a floral motif that i thought was quite new for boss. charles eames has really inspired the colours, the pop colour of grass, the orange, the fuchsia pink, they are really graphic, almost furniture-like colours. dresses are full on the front but they are more fitted at the back. i played with that idea and the different ways of playing with the woman’s body and her shape. playing with volumes is actually quite new for me at boss. it was quite strict with the shapes before so i thought it was really nice to explore something that was inspired by the 50s with that extreme curve. i am a big believer in craftsmanship, especially now when fashion is so fast, so i think it is really important to make clothes that can last a long time. they must really have the idea of beauty, beautifully made things, whether it’s embroidered lace, hand distressed fabrics or mixing 5 or 6 textiles together. music of the show, (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
