New York: Always the punk at heart, Anna Sui spiced up her classical references this season with ice-blue wigs, bondage choker necklaces and fishnet leggings, which served as interesting foils to scarf print dresses and sweetly embroidered lace separates. The designer’s beloved vintage costumes were in play as well in the form of Renaissance poet blouses, enameled cameo necklaces and tapestry florals. Sui’s S/S 13 collection was at its best when she indulged completely in her predilection for mash-ups, insouciantly pairing neoprene motorcycle jackets with dirndl dresses or Victorian tops with motocross trousers.—Nina Stotler
