While their Holiday 2018 collaboration was all about glam and formal statement dresses, their spring line embodies the season with whimsical vibes and inspiration drawn from dried poppy florals and thyme.
“Flowers have been an ongoing theme in my career. It’s in every single one of my collections, so I wanted to do that for this,” Wu told OprahMag.com. “I wanted this to be a totally different side of Jason Wu.”
The designer—who counts celebrities like Diane Kruger and Michelle Obama as clients—explained that his penchant for creating clothes with show-stopping floral prints is actually something he gets from his father.
“It’s so deeply rooted in my history. My dad is a really avid gardener. He had an amazing garden, and I grew up around it and have always been so infatuated by it,” Wu said.
Priced from $59.95-$149.95, each of the line’s 26 pieces can easily be dressed up or down. Whether it’s with a pair of cute sandals or comfortable heels, the pairing possibilities are endless for the line’s dresses, tees, blouses, blazers, trousers, and skirts.
Wu’s personal favorite piece? The notch collar wrap dress—because, as he put it, it’s “quintessentially me.” (And we totally agree; we could definitely see Meghan Markle—who’s previously worn some classically Wu designs—rocking this look.)
As with his Holiday 2018 Eloquii collection, Paloma Elsesser—a top model, body positivity activist, and now, Wu’s muse—serves as the face of the collection.
When it came time to design the clothing, Wu told us he approached it like he would any other project—regardless of size.
“I designed this collection the same way I design every other collection: I want it to look elevated and beautiful. To me, price point and size don’t really come into consideration when I design,” Wu says. “I think the design approach and the philosophy is the same. It’s about providing women with the most beautifully made clothes.”
Everything from the Spring 2019 Jason Wu x Eloquii collection is available to purchase today in stores, on Eloquii.com, and via Stitch Fix, Rent the Runway, Gwynnie Bee, and Nordstrom.com. You can check out the rest of the collection below.
