Modo for Jason Wu Introduces the Miss Wu Collection

New York, September 24th, 2010

For Spring/Summer 2011 Modo for Jason Wu will introduce four new optical and five new Sun Styles all incorporating a whimsical new icon in the form of a tiny, wide-eyed owl named Miss Wu. All styles incorporate the new Jason Wu icon in subtle etchings on the temple and on the left temple tip. One of the designer's favorite animals, the owl will provide a playful accent on his eyewear and also appears on the hardware of his Ready-to-Wear and accessories, all the while calling a familiar "Wu...Wuuu".

After the success of the Mia last season it will now be available in two new colors. Feminine notes and total harmony mixed with twists on retro-inspired details are the creative expressions of the new collection. The style names were inspired by iconic women of power and substance.

A range of innovative ophthalmic frames add a touch of glamour to every new style:

Charlotte - is a metal retro-inspired oval optical with a strong feminine feel. Chic Colors such as Ebony, Rose Gold, Mahogany and Silver complete the style.
Virginia - also a retro-inspired metal optical, this rectangle is slightly androgynous feel. Colors available: Ebony, Rose Gold, Mahogany, Silver.
