“It’s all about texture,” said Jason Wu of resort, which nicely evolved his sophisticated, ladylike proclivities with a new sense of ease. Working a silhouette that was long and lean, the designer amped up his play with surfaces. For example, he combined a coated basket-weave cotton with tweed and satin on one dress, which was also embellished with black caviar beads and mico-sequins in the form of botanical motifs. (This is resort, after all.) It may sound busy, but Wu executed these looks with a sense of control and graphic precision for an impressively clean effect. Equally striking was his take on denim. Rather than go for a classic jeans fabric, Wu used a denim-treated silk for chic dresses and skirts. It brought a new refinement to the American sportswear staple.
