Artistic Director Jason Wu shows the fundamental elements and the future of BOSS at NYFW, with paired back appearances and streamlined silhouettes.
NYFW: Boss AW15
The male aesthetics of Boss’s Womenswear have been integrated perfectly with the chic new age women in mind. Edie Campbell is dressed in a envy inducing black two piece suit, with a soft but tight waist and elegant cigarette trousers as timeless menswear pieces are effortlessly transformed into contemporary womenswear pieces to hold onto. Construction of sleek dresses that fall effortlessly with boxy shoulders and slinky slips, with innovative fabrics woven together; plasticized finishes and tulle overlays. Techniques used by the masterminds behind this collection made the differences that you may, or may not have noticed; sharp cuts, raw edges, unique fabric treatment and metallic yarn earns the Boss team a sparkly golden star for attention to detail.
Set inside an expansive bright white space for an industrial space with finesse, no exposed brick work and rusty copper pipes in sight for Wu’s take on industrial beauty. The white surroundings made the colours of the collection pop gently, with vanillas, musty reds, delicate blues and of course a hefty portion of black. Hair pulled back in a gentle pony tail and bare minimum make up proves once and for all that less is more. Accessories compliment the idea of bringing together the male and the female with contrasting pieces such as appropriated cufflinks and briefcase shaped handbags.
The woman Wu has created is strong and fearsome with her strong lines and fierce walk, the city is truly her kingdom. Prepped and ready for the boardroom, the black tie events or even the school run, these pieces are for the impressive all rounder.
