Wu’s Women

December 18th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

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.

Stylist: Kate Young | Hair: James Pecis (London: D + V Management , New York: D + V Management)| Makeup: Jeanine Lobell | Mancurist: Gina Viviano

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.
