After Givenchy unveiled its winter collection with postcard shots from Berlin, the attention continues to float around Germany as we move on with our collections reviews. This time, it’s the legendary German fashion house, Hugo Boss. We’re about to review one of the most respected Boss designers, Taiwanese-Canadian designer Jason Wu, who is beside designing for Michele Obama, can also make a statement on the runway and every page of the Hugo Boss winter collection 2016 look book. Many would think of the group to be dull or too high or even lacking personality.
And here’s presumably why they think so, fans of clean-cut looks are a whole separate consumer category. Being one of them, I think it’s tough to give us something we will adore every time we put it on. It is not easy to discover a piece worthy of our admiration. One of the ideas can be the lack of diversity in clean-cut clothing, the best examples usually being showcased on high fashion catwalks. Clean-cut fashion needs to get perfectly because it’s not only about the look, but also the fit! So, patterns, quality, and fit are what we’re looking for.
The creamy white coat is the crown of the collection clean lines bordering perfection and that almost-bathrobe look … irresistible. Cardigans of the same style, skirts flowing down up to the knees, the comeback turtlenecks are in the core of the looks. If you are not a fan of turtlenecks or covering too much of the body you’re so proud of, you can invest your attention into the skirts instead. They are well-constructed and can easily be mixed and matched with more revealing pieces.
The color palette of the Hugo Boss winter collection 2016 line-up is very dark, just like most of the pre-fall collections we see now. Creamy and grayish whites, black, dark navy blue, peachy pink, and microscopic gray are what we are treated to this time. Jason Wu has sent many intriguing clothes down the runway and red carpets, but the clean lines and the right amount of appealing modesty have always been a final note to his collections. Just one thought, he designs for the First Lady, there must be a major reason behind it. Wu’s aesthetics is too entirely in tune with Boss’s design and heritage. A match made in heaven.
Something tells me the devoted customers of Boss would like this, let us know, if you’re one of them. One last question, why are all models covered up? A fantastic choice is the amount of cleavage we see … that is none. Most of the pieces are long sleeved and completely necked. Add dark colors to this and you get the new sexy, mysterious, sophisticated, strong …, and these are lovely when they’re visible on your outfit. The upcoming fashion show recorded for February will be Wu’s 5th for Boss. The German label has been serving us with modern and cutting edge designs that have proved to be delicately elegant and timeless, and we can’t wait to see more!
