Now in his fourth season as artistic director of BOSS Womenswear Jason Wu leads us into Resort 2016 with a fresh, new direction.

In true spirit of the BOSS aesthetic, this season merges the minimal simplicity we have come to know so well with softer shapes and textures.

Inspired by contrasts
For this collection, Wu looked to an important and recurring source of inspiration for BOSS Womenswear- the interplay between the natural world and man-made structures. Inspired by patterns formed on the surface of sand dunes, gentle ripples and waves flow within the strict, precision-cut lines of coats, dresses and tailoring. The motif emerges in three different ways, each creating a distinct look and personality.

New season, new colour
In a departure from the intense shades of the past season, the Resort palette begins light and airy with sage green, grey and white. Later taking a more sartorial turn, understated black, grey and camel ground sharp, tailored silhouettes. And making a bold entrance, bright brick red appears - not only as graphic block accents, but as daring head-to-toe looks for when only the ultimate statement will do.

Into the night
As day turns to night, the BOSS woman makes an effortless transition into the evening. Graphic inverted lapels and altered proportions offer a new twist on the iconic trouser suit, while the essential white shirt is given a night-time update in a sleeveless silhouette with a distinctive high collar. An iconic feature of tailored menswear, the cufflink is now an identifying feature of the modern BOSS woman’s closet, used as a button on tailored coats, jackets and shirts, as well as to fasten a bag or clutch.

The accessory
A collection wouldn't be complete without a standout accessory and this season the BOSS Bespoke bag returns as the must-have style of the season. The bag is presented in versatile and understated shades of black, navy and caramel, while a new colour-blocked interpretation is introduced for new impact.
