Paris-based designer Peter Wu parlays broad experience and sensitive savoir faire into the launch of his namesake women’s wear label. Born in Los Angeles and raised in Taipei, Taiwan, he attended Brown University followed by Central Saint Martins, establishing early on an adaptive mindset marked by keen observation, exposure to culture, and progressive training. Fresh from receiving his honours degree in women’s design at CSM in 2011, he was accepted at Lanvin as an assistant stylist, where he advanced to a full-time position in 2013 following a brief period in the studio of Christophe Lemaire. Since leaving the maison, he has been focused on realizing his own collection, which he will present to select buyers and editors in March 2017 during the Paris FW17 ready-to-wear season. Quietly luxurious and uncompromising in detail, the clothes have been conceived for self-assured women who desire an alternative yet timeless approach to elegance and ease.
