Jason Wu recreated Tulum in his new collection for Spring 2021
In the middle of the Big Apple, the renowned designer of Canadian and Taiwanese nationalities paid tribute to one of his favorite places in the world: the paradisiac beach of Tulum, located on the Mexican Caribbean coast.
Why was Jason Wu inspired by Tulum in his latest Spring 2021 RTW collection?
Surrounded by tropical vegetation and white sand, as well as the sound of the waves, models like Indya Moore (the trans star of 'Pose' and LGBTTTI + activist) and Victoria's Secret angel, Grace Elizabeth, paraded with the 34 looks that make up the latest proposal by Jason Wu, under the theme 'home away from home' (home, away from home).
And it is that for the 37-year-old designer, this beach is like a 'second home' and he wanted to transform all the inspiration and the good moments that he has lived in this place into a proposal of relaxed, vibrant, and feminine fashion, which invites us to visit Tulum in style!
"For Spring 2021, I was inspired by my 'home away from home: Tulum'. I wanted to create a collection that would remind me of the bright tropical hues, which remind me of so many happy memories", Wu wrote in the invitation to her fashion show It should be noted that there were very few attendees since most of the guests enjoyed the parade virtually and from a distance.
'The theme of the collection is about escapism because fashion should inspire us and make us feel happy. It's been really fun exploring the more casual side of the Jason Wu woman, and that's why I decided to show my more contemporary and casual line for the first time on the runway, 'added favorite designer Michelle Obama.
