Hugo Boss.

Weds. 09/10/2014.

Hugo Boss.

Graphic. Sexy. Sharp. Sensual. Bold. Those were the Watchwords of the Striking Spring 2015 Hugo Boss Collection. Jason Wu got off to a Inauspicious and Rocky Start at Hugo Boss. It was Inelegant, Awkward, Unflattering. But here, This afternoon, Wu hit the ground Running, Fast! A Sleek Sheath of a Dress to open, Striped in Dizzying Asymmetric lines made a Chic and Minimal statement but also was Strong.

Not that this collection was Faultless, just less faulted than Fall. The Scalpel sharp coat that followed the opening look was also Winning raves, and the effortlessly elegant Sensuality of a V-Neck sheer Ribbed top paired with a Skirt with a Plisse pleated sheer overlay was Fetching to the Nth Degree! This Overlaying of Plisse pleats was one of the things that particularly got out of hand in this exhibition... At times it looked Exquisite, Take Leila Nda's Contoured Sleek dress in Black, Wickedly Sexy and Spot on, but when done on the trio of dresses in Sky Blue, White and Lemon Yellow all over white underlayers, It had a Queasy making feeling. Not good,

What was good...??? A Crystal encrusted sleeveless top in Black with Trousers that was Totally Magnificent and a Louche Narciso-like mix of the Tailored and the Relaxed. A Boxy Bonded Leather suit with a Cropped Trench jacket that was Repeated later in a slightly less Boxy style, but both were Boldly Apt for the season. Also in evidence, A Winning Trench that was practically Unembellished, save for the Two button up top. Minimal in it's most Rigourous form!

Ending with a Bang with some Deliciously Beaded dresses, Most Notable, a Sinuous Sheath in an Elaborately Intricate Colour Block pattern in Pastel tones on Kinga Rajzak, brought the show to a Convincing and Satisfying close. From this outing, the future is looking good for Wu at the House of Hugo.

That's All.
