New Line ‘Grey Jason Wu’ Announced


Jason Wu has made it known that a new sister line, ‘Grey Jason Wu,’ will be soon be released, available for purchase June 15 both online and from retailers including Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. This new line is said to be inspired by Wu’s friends, and aims to be a seasonless wardrobe for all seasons – a simple, refined line lacking fuss while maintaining style.

“As the Jason Wu collection evolved over the last few years, I felt that there was room for a sister collection that very much addressed the needs of women who look for a beautiful, seasonless wardrobe that is neither too edgy or sweet. There is a sense of relaxed sophistication with thoughtful details that is the basis for Grey Jason Wu.” This was the statement made by the designer via instagram, where he has shared several photos of the sketches for the upcoming collection, as well as a pile of clothing labels.

The designer took this opportunity to take part in collaborations, beginning with the American artist Hunt Slonem, who is known especially for his paintings of birds and bunnies. “I’ve always loved the idea of collaboration, and with GREY Jason Wu I have the opportunity to work with some amazingly talented people,” Wu captioned one sketch for the sister line. “For the first collection, I asked artist Hunt Slonem to be my first collaborator, and I’ve translated his famous bunnies into printed chiffon, a multi-colored jacquard, and embroidery on knitwear. Hunt’s work is charming, full of life, and so clever-qualities that perfectly sum up GREY Jason Wu.” Examples of this collaboration can be seen below.
