“Nature versus man-made” is how Jason Wu described his resort collection, citing the work of artist Mike Libby — who combines taxidermy with watch parts — as his main inspiration. In Wu’s hands, the results were more charming and less strange, with touches like crystal bug adornments and botanical embroideries. He used a lovely hand-loomed guipure lace for a sleeveless top with matching shorts, and teamed a white T-shirt, its neckline embellished in crystals, with a crochet striped skirt. For evening, Wu amped up what he called “trompe l’oeil” effects with lingerie-like details, such as the faux beaded lace slip that peeked through the slit of a floor-length black gown.
