The Anna Sui woman is not afraid of wild prints, she's also not afraid of pom-poms, poufs, or socks worn with pumps. Which is why the eclectic designer's Spring/Summer collection was an ideal blend of crazy and classic, merged into a kaleidoscopic show that somehow never fell into a canyon of tacky. There was a period in the 1970s when the fashions of the 1940s came back into vogue, and Sui's Lincoln Center show referenced that double retro era, but she added yet another layer to the 1940-meets-1970s hybrid with an endless swirl of color. The "Sunset Boulevard" turbans, florals, wide pants, and finally a vampy collection of black siren dresses gave Sui an outlet for ideas that in the past may have floundered. Here, she merged those thoughts into a coherent and exuberant hybrid of color and cut.
