Fashion is cyclical, but Anna Sui has always done Anna Sui. That doesn’t mean, however, she isn’t open to new influences. “We just did the collaboration with Opening Ceremony, and were looking at their grunge collection — so we decided to put some touches of that into resort,” she explained.
As a result, Sui featured vintage floral prints, kimonos, plaids mixed in with feminine details, lingerie touches, burnt-out velvet dresses and the occasional Victorian touches to bring about an eclectic mix of looks. One standout: a long-sleeve, green floral chiffon dress featuring multiple slits. “It’s our Naomi [Campbell] redo,” Sui said. It felt like the Nineties all over again, choker ribbons included. But in a good way.
