Asia travels; the British musical comedy “Chu Chin Chow,” and AnnaMay Wong — the first Chinese-American movie star — looking Mod-ish in“Piccadilly” inspired Anna Sui’s playful fall collection.

Suilargely stuck to one theme — chinoiserie meets Twenties Art Deco — withclothes that would look at home in both speakeasy and opium den, or onfans of Sui’s irreverent point of view.

There were severalflapper and cheongsam dresses and pretty embroidered silk pajamas that,when teamed with fringed scarves and great Mongolian lamb fur coats, hada boho attitude. The tweed jackets were also charming, executed softlylike a knit cardigan. Colorful Art Deco-inspired boots and tasselednecklaces added to the fun.

The few men’s looks, such as anembroidered tuxedo jacket over ruffle shirt and pajama pants,complemented the show’s exotic vibe.
