For the Hugo Boss Fall 2015 Womenswear Collection Artistic Director Jason Wu continued the marriage of man and nature that has continually inspired the aesthetic of his vision for the BOSS woman. The combination of curves with straight lines and streamlined silhouettes with fundamental elements makes his third collection for BOSS Womenswear truly unique.
Jason Wu’s highly-anticipated third collection for BOSS Womenswear focused on the industrial beauty: A strong focus on sharp cuts and innovative fabrications combined with streamlined silhouettes and fundamental elements.
“In the atelier, there are no scissors. Everything’s laser-cut,” he marveled before his show. Thus inspired, Wu layered an industrial motif onto the tailoring. This gave the clothes graphic impact, coats and dresses crafted from blocks of fabrics, often featuring precision arcs and curves. These were particularly bold in charcoal gray and “traffic cone orange.” The fabric blocking proves an important treatment; in keeping with the industrial motif, Wu developed several corrugated materials that inserted interesting texture into the mix. He also worked in moments of softness, in crepe sheaths with intricacies of cut and more fluid dresses in what appeared to be textured knits.
