There was only one pantsuit at the Boss Spring 2015 runway show, but tailoring and highly structural elements lent the  a professional edge. Jason Wu, the designer behind the menswear-inspired label, repeated the same workwear silhouette through three different looks: a belt-cinched sleeveless dress, long-sleeved dress, and skirt and shirt combination. Clean hemlines fell above the knee and the same white shirtdress was layered with various graphic print pencil skirts. Midway through the show, the black, white, and pastel blue and yellow professional looks gave way to garments of Wu’s forte: eveningwear. Bodices became fitted, necklines plunged, and sheer hemlines dropped below the knee. The designer experimented with a few fabrics, including pleated tech tulle and creating a felt bustier, but overall kept the collection in line with Boss’s tailored reputation.
