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.

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.
