June 6 will be a big day for designer (and Michelle Obama favorite) Jason Wu, as he launches a revamped website, where he will present his 2012 Resort collection, and debuts an e-boutique that the fashion set has been waiting for. First in the shop will be a selection of four handbags (a tote, crossbody, shoulder bag and clutch) available in seven hues and three fabrics: python, calf leather and a natural canvas with goatskin trim and only through the site. The color palette ranges from the electric violet and red to a sultry Bordeaux and neutral tones of sand, black, and (a perfect for post-Memorial Day) white. The website will have a page dedicated to documenting Wu's craftsmanship, giving a behind-the-scenes look at how his garments are made, and it will also house all his social media platforms—Facebook, Tumblr, and his new Twitter account under the name "Miss Wu." Above, Miss Wu Mini bag in cotton canvas with goat skin trim, $1,295; jasonwustudio.com.
