Jason Wu’s oeuvre has a refined femininity that speaks softly and carries a big stick. True to form, his spring 2017 collection is punctuated with punchy confidence: neon floral appliqués and embroidery electrify Wu’s prim silhouettes, much like the work of artist Ugo Rondinone—a point of inspiration this season—whose “Seven Magic Mountains,” a stack of neon-painted boulders, has enlivened the barren Mojave Desert in Nevada. On this dress, transparent sequins and micro-bugle beading over pale green and red threaded tendrils complement fringe-accented motifs, collectively expressing Wu’s fascination with the contrast between nature and artifice.
