Jason Wu Returns to NYFW with Spring/Summer 2020 Line
Jason Wu is back from his two-season break from the runway, and his new collection is a token from the designer’s summer vacation on the islands of Mykonos and Mallorca
This summer, the New York City-base Canadian-Taiwanese designer Jason Wu decided it is high time for him to take a step back and recalibrate. To help facilitate this said recalibration, Wu took himself on an end-of-summer month-long trip to the islands of Mykonos and Mallorca. Going there with a clear intention to let down, laze around and luxuriate in the heavenly sun and sands of Italy, he realized how important it is to press pause on the grind from time to time, recharge and figure out exactly where you stand and where you want to go in the future.
