Style.com gives their take:
"Wu's Resort show was full of reliably pretty dresses, among them a print chiffon frock peeking from underneath a navy trench and a short strapless number in three-dimensional petals. What really felt fresh, though, was the lemon silk shantung blazer that he opened with, as well as the blue tweed pantsuit he sent out a little later on. They weren't necessarily the first pieces of tailoring Wu has ever put on the runway, but they conveyed a message."
Once again we feel we have to point out that style.com's being a bit diplomatic here. Don't get us wrong, they hit the nail on the head with "reliably pretty." It's just that all that talk of "fresh" looks conveying a "message" is perhaps overstating it a bit.
There's a reason Michelle Obama put his name on the map: he makes inoffensive, attractive clothing, perfect for a first lady or politician's wife. "Reliably pretty." Not necessarily the kind of stuff that's gonna light up a Vogue cover, but it's all tasteful and well done.
