Fashion Bytes: Jason Wu’s #GreyOut at New York Fashion Week
Welcome to Fashion Bytes, a cheat sheet for your favorite runway designers. From style inspirations to behind-the-scenes scoops, here’s everything worth knowing at New York Fashion Week Spring 2018.
The brand: A witty take on city style, GREY Jason Wu is a go-to label for cool girls with jam-packed days. From painted bunny prints to wispy maxi dresses, it’s an elevated way to dress from day to night.
The designer: Wu shot to fame after dressing Michelle Obama for her first inaugural ball, and he quickly became a red carpet favorite for stars like Diane Kruger and Kerry Washington. In 2014, he was honored by the Parsons School of Design—despite having famously dropped out before his own graduation several years earlier.
The show: Wu called it a “Grey Out” and he meant it: everything from the fingernails to the walls to the floor was a dove-grey shade. Earl Grey tea was served (naturally) and the show included silver-grey accessories from LeSportsac. The muted colors helped Wu’s clothes pop, especially the dotted navy dress and the trench coats the color of a burnt-sienna crayon.
The F-row: Karlie Kloss arrived to greet her designer friend at 10am sharp, because even supermodels know punctuality is vital.
The verdict: Smart, easy-to-style statement pieces that are worth waking up for. (We loved the tea lattes too.)
