An Eyeful of Fashion from Modo for Jason Wu

New York, May 10th, 2010

Modo for Jason Wu introduces its first optical collection which consists of 5 styles (Elizabeth, Viola, Josephine, Scout and Jane).

The names were inspired by characters from literature that are representations of women of power and substance. Overall the optical collection carries on the tradition established with the launch of the sun collection: a focus on subtle design details, matte finishes, understated branding and fashion forward yet wear-able shapes. The materials include handmade Japanese plastic with double-brushed stainless steel details.
Jason Wu designs for the fearless, modern woman who is strong and yet not afraid to embrace her softer side. The optical styles reflect this attitude through gutsy yet feminine shapes with textured metal details such as the Viola and Jane. The deeper, larger shapes like Scout and Josephine are a bit more neutral but the muted pastels with soft matte finish add a feminine quality.

The colors include semi-translucent crystals in aquamarine, topaz, rose, olivine, noir, plum, and richly textured tortoise.
