Jason Wu Fall 2021 Collection: Inside Mr. Wu’s General Store

I love a fun fashion show concept just as much as the next guy, but a food-themed exhibition holds an extra special place in my heart. On Sunday, February 14, Jason Wu kicked off New York Fashion Week as one of two designers to hold a socially-distanced in-person show. He transformed an empty storefront at 666 Broadway into the most charming bodega in lower Manhattan—complete with lush florals, fresh vegetables, carbs galore, and so, so many bottles of wine.

Acknowledging that Off-White now belongs to both of the outsider-insider poles he defines as “tourist vs. purist”—in this case, fashion fans vs. the fashion establishment— Abloh wanted to cement the brand’s continued democratic disposition. “You make a fashion brand to get a tribe of people to wear it, but my conception of the

Classy, bougie, ratchet (yeah). Sassy, moody, nasty. Megan Thee Stallion is a lot of things—as is her debut collection for Fashion Nova, which debuted on Wednesday. Ahead of the release, Meg boasted that the line would have “better representation” than most, specifically pointing out the size-inclusivity of her collection “of premium denim, luxe corset bodysuits and tops with matching pants, jaw-dropping dresses and plush outerwear,” created with “the real body” in mind.

“Everybody is not just a cookie-cutter size, so I just want to make sure that starting with this collab we have better representation with just women in general,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s not just about the model body. It’s about the real body, so this collection definitely caters to women with curves…just the girls with the little representation; that’s what my collection really caters to.”
