NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Though Jason Wu didn't come out on top last night, the CFDA nominee still debuted a real contender of a Resort 2012 Collection. After trying his hand at accessories three years ago, the designer has slipped swimwear — another lucrative pot — into a collection nearly twice the size of last year's. Wu credited Puerto Rico as his source of inspiration, saying, "I went there for New Year’s and a couple times last year. It’s so fun, one of my favorite vacation spots, and on the drive you always see houses in these crazy colors: pink, blue, coral, peach, all with white molding. They almost look like they came out of a set. But they’re actually the most traditional houses, in Old San Juan you can see a lot of it."
The designer created a cohesive collection that's just as tailored as it is whimsical: I'm dying to get my hands on the bandeau bathing suit and I could see a couple of the sheer lace tops making themselves at home in my closet. Check out the rest of the collection below.
