In his latest Hugo Boss Spring 2016 womenswear collection, Artistic Director Jason Wu reworks and refines the tailoring DNA so synonymous with BOSS.

“The tailoring aesthetic doesn’t just come from a jacket or a suit per se,” Wu said backstage to WWD. “Look at a shirtdress that’s been really well-tailored.”

Airy panels of sheer technical organza was a great tool for giving breathing room and modern movement to sharp shirts and structured shift dresses, displaying a minimalist femininity.

More classic takes on tailoring included clean, loosely structured jackets and cropped wide trousers that felt fresh in stark white. The collection also included square, structured top-handle bags in multicolored geometric patterns contrasted the bright, clinical hues with a touch of craftiness.
