Vlov-Quingquing Wu for Spring/Summer 2012 was a lesson of flawless simplicity that can fill a man’s wardrobe with precious basics and desirable statement pieces. The show at Lincoln Center during MB Fashion Week in NYC was a charming parade of blues, blacks, whites and greys in nice, easy-to-wear fabrics put together in loose and fitted styles, for casual and corporate looks. Some of them seemed to be inspired from workers’ outfits, others from traditional Asian costumes while others from sportswear and hipsters’ attires. I spotted a lot of pajama-like shirts, wide pants and Bermuda shorts, smarty-cut jackets and blazers, and excellently tailored pieces. Among the features that stood out and grabbed the whole attention were the nude color duos, the electric blue monochrome items, the white suits and the shiny fabrics in darker shades. Minimal as they were, some of the looks could be called futuristic, stressing more the very need for convenience and mixing it up with modern-age elegance. The quest for comfort played a major role, making those clothes very attractive to young, active people with an urban lifestyle and fast moving routines.
