Jason Wu Fall 2012 Collection: The New Girl

Move over, Miss Wu! There be a new lady in Jason‘s life, and her name is Daphne. I’m not surprised he’s all about her – Daphne is a delight.

For the ladies who do more than lunch, the aptly named Daphne Crossbody Warrior will seamlessly carry you from meetings to cocktails. With studs sprinkled unabashedly across the face of the bag, the Warrior is an attention-getter. Strap it across and go; you’ll need to be able to move with this baby, as you fight off envious onlookers. For the less adventurous, the Daphne Crossbody also comes in a simple, smooth version of saffiano leather. A satchel variation (in both Warrior and regular) puts an elegant spin on the style; it’s shapely yet structured and full of mass appeal. As for the Daphne Clutch Warrior, here’s a case where a tassel accessory works famously. It’s just the detail to amp up a small bag and give it that extra splash of spunk.

Touches of gold-tinged python pack allure that’s at once high-glam and neutral, and jewel-toned velvet hobos are sure to feel cozy under your arm come fall. The new collection goes all out. Mink! Exoticism! Primary colors gone fresh and exciting! And a new attitude! The Ming clutches, embellished with an opulent dragon motif, border on serious kitsch, but that’s part of their charm, no? Jason Wu is high on spirit this season, and I’m feeling elevated right along with him.
