I love this collection! The inspiration behind it – late 50′s early 60′s Paris – is such a youthful, exciting era! Everything was new and about youth… She makes this her own in quintessential Anna color and pattern. Too bad it’s so hard to find in the stores now…
Anna has conjured up looks out of old Black & White French Films from the 60s! Typically Anna sees everything in colour and what a beautiful colour palette it is too. The show was amazing from start to finish, I particularly love the talented models dancing when the lights came on – Inspired!
Derivative issues, for me. Too much ironic recycling of what were bad looks in the first place. I’d like to see her do something tasteful. I know that’s not what she’s known for but you can see she has the skills to do it. I’m throwing down that challenge… Anna Sui: Do an exercise in restraint.
Wow! What a fun collection! I’m not quite sure why it works so well–the clashing prints and squared shapes should just be loud and boxy, but instead everything is oddly harmonious and pretty flattering. I think it’s all in the proportions and tones (SO much nicer than the mess at J Crew). And while I’d never wear one of these ensembles as is, I would love to have any number of the individual pieces.
