French New Wave. Godard. Anna Karina. These were just a fewcatchwords that Anna Sui named backstage to describe her fall lineup.She loved the graphic aesthetic of Godard’s films — particularly his setdesigns, the use of red and blue, black and white and even his fonts.Over the top as this Sui collection was, it was colorful and playful,with some fun pieces that are sure to please. Graphic, A-line dresseswere layered over collared shirts or thin, patterned sweaters and pairedwith beaded neckties for a masculine-feminine look. Faux fur jacketsand coats added volume and texture to some of the Sixties-esque stripedand printed frocks. Lightweight sweater dresses, worn solo or undercardigans and little jackets, showed up in bright, contrast colors withcropped sleeves and matching knee socks.
