Jason Wu’s Junior’s Line Get’s A First Lady Reveal
Jason Wu continues to woo the oh-so-fashionable masses with the announcement that he’s been slogging away all summer on a new juniors diffusion line to be called “Miss Wu.” — *cue the swooning.
WWD reveled that the 40-piece collection, to be sold exclusively at Nordstrom, will feature shifts and A-line frocks “with touches of Mod.” Think sixties icons Jane Birkin and Marianne Faithfull, says Wu, “Those girls had that certain something-something that really felt right for the image of [the Miss Wu] girl.”
Wu went on, “This collaboration has an appeal not just to a younger set of women, but to a broader set of women and at prices that are approachable.” And while, the line won’t exactly be Wu’s Target collaboration “approachable,” Miss Wu will be priced lower than Wu’s ready-to-wear line — think $195 – $795. The collection is set to appear in January… unless of course you’re the First Lady, Michelle Obama. In which case you get to done a Miss Wu green checkered “modern weave dress” for a recent campaign event in Cincinnati, Ohio.
