Jason Wu has become a household name in the United States, and his creations are a favorite with America’s recent and much favored First Lady, Michelle Obama. Jason Wu combines his signature impeccable elegance with a dash of color and opulence for his latest collection for Atelier Swarovski. The delicate yet decadent pieces are rendered in jet black crystal and the more striking Lava with its fuchsia, pink and siam crystals offset by a steely gunmetal finish. Wu’s collection features earrings that drip with crystal and magnificent beaded statement necklaces finished with ribbons for a feminine touch.
“The pieces are a study in contrast, with chainmail, metal and delicate crystals.”
