Cathy Horyn: Jason Wu’s Collection ‘Just Didn’t Work’


Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn: "Jason Wu’s homage to the photographs of Irving Penn just didn’t work. The draping of evening dresses — full-skirted deb numbers, trapezes and so forth — was clunky and labored, and one strapless silk dress had a huge swell of fabric on the model’s arm, as if a muff had crawled up her elbow. Was Mr. Wu being cheeky, as someone on Twitter suggested? Maybe, but I don’t think irony is his special gift." [Heard on the Runway/NYT]
