New York: This season, art and nature were the major themes that Anna Sui incorporated into her always vintage-inspired, bohemian-glam line. A mix of historic art styles and movements largely influenced the collection’s prints, patterns, and sweater motifs. An intarsia knit pullover depicted a mountain landscape, exemplifying the workmanship-oriented, true-to-material ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th century. A series of flapper dresses with geometric sequin designs and seam placements were the epitome of Art Deco. Sui’s usual show staples of crochet, heavy jewelry, patterned tights and knee-high boots were as present as ever, giving every ensemble a look that was quintessentially Anna. There were also the utility vests, contrast sleeves and aviator hats that can be spotted on most runways this season. The collection was particularly appealing, maybe because so many “of-the-moment” elements — like mixed patterns, layering, fur, and fabric-piecing — already happen to be part of the designer’s personal aesthetic.
