BRIGHT 60s SWING
New York: Anna Sui’s love of the 60s shone bright this season with a wildly colorful outing of fun, retro ensembles that would be at home in an Austin Powers romp while still addressing several must-haves of today. The most on-trend of these pieces included colorblocked silk pajama pants, crochet minidresses, and intarsia knit cardigans, while bright zany furs were pure streetstyle scene essentials. Matched sets were also approached with a new sense of energy, resulting in checked trouser sets trimmed in harlequin stripe ruffles, and Sui resurrected the classic patterned velvet coat with tapestry-style motifs and an easy A-line fit.—Nina Stotler
