Ajok For Jason Wu Pre Fall 2020

Jason Wu is an interior design junkie. His home in New York is immaculately appointed in a modern style by Andre Mellone, whose studio space Wu is now sharing for his showroom. The designer loves to sift through design books, browse galleries for rare vintage furniture finds, and visit iconic homes around the country, which he did just before beginning work on this pre-fall collection. Wu was in Houston and arranged for a private tour of the Menil house. Built by Philip Johnson in 1950, the modernist home featured interiors conceptualized by couturier Charles James, who added rich, romantic touches like hot pink satin finishes on the master closet doors and Rococo-style mirrors and chairs.
The Menil house is a visual and physical representation of Wu’s aesthetic: modern and minimal but also quite romantic. He brought the two sides together successfully here in this contemporary-priced collection. The offering was tightly edited and included clean, sophisticated suiting, subtle prints, and silhouettes that weren’t overly soft or sweet. A graphic black and white print on a boxy overcoat stood out, as did an easy white cotton blouse with a low V-neck and voluminous sleeves. There was a confidence to the execution that was previously missing. Wu has been busy building his own house and it seems like he’s now ready to open the front door and let everyone in.
