A Sunday in the life of Jason Wu

23 June 2009

Ever since Michelle Obama stepped out at the Inaugural Ball swathed in a dreamy one shoulder Jason Wu chiffon gown, things have come on a long way for the 26 year old US designer. Despite the craziness that has surrounded his rapid accension to the fashion big league, Wu insists that there's still one day a week where he needs some downtime from the Wumania to ‘do all the things in the city that I never get to do'. So every Sunday he sleeps until noon, grinds his Starbucks coffee beans without fail, and cosies up with a week's worth of magazines to catch up on. His weekend wardrobe consists of pieces by the likes of Levi's and Band of Outsiders, almost always in dark colours, and he won't go anywhere without his failsafe footwear: ‘it's Converse, always Converse'. But it doesn't end there; Wu also loves cooking ‘On Sundays I go to Whole Foods and buy tons of stuff'. He's more than partial to a little after dinner poker every now and again too: ‘It's survival of the fittest. I'm pretty good unless I get tired, and then I get impatient.'  Phew. Wonder if Mobama's ever been round for a game of Texas Hold'Em... [NY Times]
