Jason Wu is a master of all things youthful and pretty so it was a refreshing surprise to witness elegance radiate from his Fall collection that transported us to the lavishness of the Qing dynasty. We’re especially drawn toward the ornate accessory selection—bags, shoes and sunglasses—that celebrated his Chinese roots.
Through February 29, accessories from the Fall collection will be available for pre-order on Moda Operandi and will arrive between July 2 and September 24. With that, we’ve curated distinct pieces that have sparked an urge in us to flip through Chinese history books for more of the delicate patterns Wu incorporated into the collection.
The decorative appeal of this embroidered box clutch is as fascinating as the rich Chinese history. The colorful hand embroidery against the crisp red satin elegantly stands out. There is a certain grace in this bag that seems fitting for ladies of utter class.
Wu adorned the sides of this peep-toe pump with traditional Chinese embroidery. The delicateness and refinement this pair exudes beckons images of graceful women during the Qing dynasty.
Carry exquisiteness with Wu’s Ming Hobo Bag. We love the bag’s antiquated appeal as well as the intricate embroidery on the body and hardware.
Walk like an empress in this velvet pair that comes in black and gold or burgundy and red. The gold piping on the vamp and stacked heel is eerily old-worldly but intriguingly quirky.
