NEW YORK — In the end it all comes back to Bauhaus. The lines, angles, and primary colors favored by the approach to art and architecture that flourished in Weimar Germany have a way of focusing attention back on the what really matters whilst jettisoning the superfluous. This much was true Wednesday afternoon for the BOSS Spring / Summer 2016 runway show staged at 245 Park Avenue in the late 1960s skyscraper by Shreve, Lamb & Harmon, the architects who famously designed the Empire State Building. On the afternoon a quartet of models at Next including Julia Fleming, Lineisy Montero, Vera Van Erp, and Binx featured on the runway for Jason Wu’s latest women’s ready-to-wear collection for the German brand. Suiting is part of the BOSS legacy and as such featured throughout the collection, adapted with a lightness of touch for spring. There were moments of poetry as well, most notably in the semi-sheer organza dress in zest yellow worn by Julia Fleming. Danke schön, BOSS!
