French New Wave. Godard. Anna Karina. These were just a few catchwords that Anna Sui named backstage to describe her fall lineup. She loved the graphic aesthetic of Godard’s films — particularly his set designs, 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 dresses were layered over collared shirts or thin, patterned sweaters and paired with beaded neckties for a masculine-feminine look. Faux fur jackets and coats added volume and texture to some of the Sixties-esque striped and printed frocks. Lightweight sweater dresses, worn solo or under cardigans and little jackets, showed up in bright, contrast colors with cropped sleeves and matching knee socks.
