Miss Wu by Jason WuPosted: July 28, 2012
2013 can’t come soon enough for fans of Jason Wu. The famous designer is releasing an affordable ready-to-wear line with Nordstrom called: Miss Wu.
The line may be targeted at a younger demographic but is by no means a cheap or trend-dependent teen line. Miss Wu still keeps with Wu’s signature sleek, feminine shape and boasts 60’s-inspired patterns and bright colours. Jason Wu describes the Miss Wu girl as “mischievous, she’s feminine, she loves fashion.”
The line includes sleeveless blouses, colourful party frocks and leather jackets. Wu continues his thoughts on his new line, “A lot of my friends would certainly be the Miss Wu customer. You know, the 20-somethings that are on their first or second job and really are quite serious about fashion, but can’t afford a designer price point all the time. So this is something that’s really great for them. Because it’s still a collection of great pieces to add to your wardrobe that are meaningful, not throw-away, but also it’s something that can be very wearable.”
Jason Wu explains that the line is slightly more relaxed and downtown than his eponymous designer brand. The 40-piece collection will be available in 49 Nordstrom stores and online in January 2013. Pieces range from $195-$795, a drastic reduction from Jason Wu’s designer line prices.
While the line has yet to be revealed to the public, Jason Wu is already talking about an expansion. Two seasons of Miss Wu are already mapped out with a plan for accessories to follow.
