Jason Wu (!!!): “that is a really cool purpose for a fashion blog”

Louis Boston (quite possibly the best store other than Bergdorf’s) hosted Jason Wu for a q&a @ The ICA (click here for ICA 411) and then a private champs mingle at Louis Boston, (click the blue for reversecommuter’s love for all things Louis)

SO many fabulous quotes…..

“Drawing is how I speak … I carry around a pile of moleskins with me.”

“A Jason Wu woman is a super glam glamazon & super feminine.”

“A Jason Wu woman is a little bitchy – doesn’t want to talk to anyone, even me” – Jason was telling a story of the first time he saw someone on the streets of NYC wearing his clothing.  He thought to himself, “that is look #9” and he stopped this cute Asian woman and said “you look so beautiful” and she was weirded out and said a snotty “thanks” and kept walking.

“I have always been a fashion nerd.”

“Social media is sort of fun, it allows people to see how the magic of fashion comes to fruition”  /  Instagram is a photographic journey and Block User is the best button.”

SO OBSESSED with this coat from Jason Wu’s Fall 2013 Collection…OBSESSED!

Jason Wu loves cooking and eating food, and would love to open a restaurant one day.  He said that “the waitresses would be total bi*ches and the food would be VERY delicious.”

Jason Wu Fall 2013 Collection is all about leather, purple, epaulets, green and winter whites.

“The fantasy aspect in fashion – you have to have it or else fashion is boring.”

Jason Wu is quite possibly the poster boy for posssessing modesty while on a meteoric rise!  Wonderful gentleman with modesty, crazy good sense of humor,a perfect amount of humbleness and an appropriate appreciation for self worth – brilliant blend!

The champs & mingle at Louis Boston was so intimate and lovely! Louis Boston and the visionary of all things fashion, Debi Greenberg, really and truly aligned the stars last night.

Jason was approachable and charming.  He was so inspirational in his talk and clearly loves life.  “Luck is nothing if you don’t go for it.”  Word Jason Wu, word.

Happy Weekend!

OsGemeos Fashion Osmosis

Os Gemeos (Portugese for twins) is a Brazilian graffiti artist duo (made up of identical twin brothers of course), with uber cool talent.  (click the blue to go their website to see more of their work).

There was an exhibit at The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) last week, inviting five fashion boutiques in Boston to infuse Os Gemeos’ style into fashion.

Louis Boston (j’adore!!), Serenella, Turtle, Riccardi and Uniform were the selected boutiques. Salon Mario Russo was also invited to create wigs and hairstyles that incorporated Os Gemeos’ art.
The hair was phenom!

reversecommuter & a model (her hair was a crazy color combination but the yellow is an Os Gemeos trademark as it reflects a yellow the twins both dream of – these brothers are too coo!).

After the exhibit it was time to hit Sam’s (reversecommuter’s fave patio in the city) for champs and oysters. Stellar evening!
