Retransforming the Hugo Boss line, Jason Wu recently presented his first collection for the house and Dress To Kill was there to see the launch in Toronto.

The collection was made with traditional menswear fabrics for the modern day woman and cut with sharp precision to give the silhouettes an architectural shape. Refined and neatly styled from over coats, to strapped dresses, to the classic suit, Wu played with textures to give the collection the substance and juice we all love when getting dressed for a breezy Autumn morning. The palette was strictly neutral with hues of black, charcoal, camel, ivory and hints of blush pink to lighten up the fluidity of the line. Some pieces were intricately beaded with finesse for a more formal approach and others seemed as if you took an amazingly perfect pair of trousers from your boyfriend and popped on a killer pair of pumps and tailored blazer with a leather belt at the waist for accentuation, while maintaining the minimalistic esthetic of the brand. The new image of Hugo Boss is surely making noise in the industry and has quickly been compared to vintage collections from Jil Sander and Clavin Klein when both of these designers were at their creative peak and seemed like the right move for the house to take.
