twenties flair

French photographers Jules and Henri Séeberger, the Séeberger
brothers, were the street-style pioneers of the twenties 
capturing the country's couturiers creations in Paris and 
in 'beau monde' venues such as Monte Carlo, Biarritz, 
Deauville or Saint Moritz marking a reference point 
in style and fashion reportage.

The demimonde depiction of their photos represented 
the starting point of inspiration for Jason Wu's 
pre-fall 2011 (his second one and thankfully twice 
the size of his first) flawless collection.
Full of 20's and 30's detectable references like frilly 
dresses, tied collars and lowered hemlines are skillfully 
mixed with menswear and militaria touches that 
give the collection a great panache.

Jason Wu combines modern dressing with the haute couture
detailing, as a matter of fact the key attribute which made him
emerging as one the new American leading designer, harking
back to the days when women were always styled to perfection.

A true ladylike collection for well-bred women showing deco
details like dropped waists, shapes emphasizing the woman's
hourglass silhouette, Hepburn pants and two amazing coats:
a grey one-button wool and a black belted one with a sort 
of lace applique or beading.
The palette pairs black & white with soft pop colors like 
salmon pink and violet or warm red and nut brown.
