Jason Wu’s Four Seasons

June 26th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Over the last few years Jason Wu has made a habit of taking supermodels to the world’s finest eateries – Karen Elson at Indochine, Stephanie Seymour at La Grenouille, Christy Turlington at Mr. Chows, an impressive lineup and a concept that has provided Wu’s ads with an appealing visual signature. For fall Wu and Adriana Lima head over to fabled Manhattan restaurant, The Four Seasons. Considering that The Four Seasons is the birthplace of the “powerlunch” it seems like an ideal spot to showcase the sophisticated and expertly tailored F/W collection. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shoot Lima against the restaurant’s impressive Mies van der Rohe designed interiors and Adriana looks right at home perched in a corner of the pool room.

Like A Boss

June 6th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

When Jason Wu took the creative reigns at Hugo Boss, he infused the storied brand with a dose of excitement. The fashion world waited with baited breath to see just what Wu would come up with and his streamlined fall collection didn’t disappoint. Given that Wu’s F/W runway was full of the kind of trend-proof wares that will remain relevant for decades to come, it’s only fitting that his debut campaign for BOSS maintains that timeless feel. Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and styled by Joe McKenna (Art Partner) with creative direction by Wu, the Hugo Boss fall ads are refined and character driven – a move that is unsurprising considering that Wu launched his collection with a corresponding film.

Fall’s players include a dynamic and modern femme embodied by brand muse, Edie Campbell and a rugged male lead portrayed by Scott Eastwood, the dashing son of Hollywood legend Clint and a rising star in his own right. By centering the ads around these archetypes, Wu instantly grounds the BOSS ideals in the kind of classicism that feels contemporary. Edie’s versatility shines as she poses in tailored overcoats and dresses, while Eastwood lends his shots a touch of Hollywood panache.

If the sleek campaign looks different from what we’ve come to expect from it’s no mistake. “This is my first campaign for BOSS, and we wanted to take a fresh, different approach,” says BOSS Artistic  Director Jason Wu. “The HUGO BOSS tradition is in tailoring, which is always present, but it’s important that this campaign not only shows the BOSS clothes, but evokes the BOSS lifestyle.”

It wouldn’t be campaign season without the sight of Jason Wu enjoying a meal with a supermodel. This season the lovely lady is Karen Elson and the locale is Indochine! Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and art directed by Patrick Li, the campaign is a winning addition to a stellar series. Clad in slinky dresses from Wu’s elegant spring showing Karen captures the allure of the Wu woman – sexy, modern and always ready for an evening on the town.

The Silk Road

November 19th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

It’s difficult not to have a soft spot for American Vogue‘s actor + model editorials and over the years the magazine has given us more than a few memorable pairings; Gisele and George Clooney, Gemma Ward and Josh Hartnett, Liya Kebede & Andre 3000, the list goes on. For the December issue Vogue takes things to the next level, enlisting Kate Moss and this year’s Oscar front-runner Chiwetel Ejiofor for a Mario Testino (Art Partner) helmed story that takes the pair to Istanbul on a romantic getaway. Sporting resort looks from BurberryJason Wu and a bit of SS14 Proenza Schouler as styled by Tonne Goodman, the pair looks resplendent. With architectural wonders like the Çinili Köşk as the backdrop and Testino showcasing the beauty of Istanbul in every shot the story also serves as an especially chic travel diary. 

See the full story on Vogue.com including a look behind the scenes with Tonne Goodman

Dinner for Wu

June 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

After Spring’s jaunt to La Grenouille with Stephanie Seymour, fall finds Jason Wu at another of New York’s venerable restaurants with a supermodel companion. The line’s sleek Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed ad, art directed by Patrick Li and shot at the fabled uptown outpost of Mr. Chow features Christy Turlington and is the second in Wu’s appetizing series. In the colorful campaign shots Turlington sits perched atop a booth looking resplendent in designs from Wu’s tour de force ‘Extreme Femininity’ collection.

When asked about the Turlington collaboration Wu stated, “I’ve been so privileged to work with such talented models and women who continue to inspire me.” Turlington personifies the essence of the Wu woman- formidable, feminine, and always glamorous. Christy’s comments were just as complimentary, “I always love working with my friends Inez and Vinoodh and it was great getting to meet and spend some time with Jason.” Sounds like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Wu’s Spring Fling

January 17th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

For his spring collection Jason Wu looked to the sex appeal and visual impact of Helmut Newton‘s photographs, so naturally when it came time to create a campaign Wu wanted visuals every bit as powerful as those Newton created. The bar was set high, but who better to handle the task than the dream team of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin handling photography, Kate Young styling, Patrick Li art directing and the one and only Stephanie Seymour striking the poses. Shot at La Grenouille and seeped in the kind of old school glamour that never loses its appeal, Wu’s campaign is as good as it gets. The designer himself even joins in on the fun, sharing space with La Seymour in an instantly iconic shot.

February 2nd, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

For his line’s very first campaign Jason Wu focuses on the silhouette. Shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Joe McKennathe ads starring Julia Frauche are as elegant and beautiful as we’ve come to expect from Wu.

The 50s couture inspired pieces from the spring collection look look flawless, as does Miss Frauche. Chosen for her unique mix of fragile beauty and strength, Julia served as muse for the images – fitting given that Jason’s S/S 12 runway was the very first one she walked in New York.
