Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Academy of Art University Menswear Spring 2012 Collection - Photo by Luxury ExperienceDesigner Qingqing "Richard" Wu and the Academy of Art University give menswear an edgy, contemporary, urban feel for Spring and Summer 2012, as seen during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.
 

Designer Qingqing "Richard" Wu said of his VLOV Spring/Summer 2012 Collection, "This season I was inspired by the letter V, for both its graphic and graceful simplicity. To achieve my silhouettes, I have incorporated laser-cutting techniques and finish on high tech wool, creased linens and embossed fabrications. My color palette is divided into two themes, grey representing introspective elegance along with blue and white representing hope."
