Anna Sui is Sensational
-Think surprising. Think eccentric. Thing full-out funky. Think Anna Sui! Sui (pronounced Swee), a designer
now cutting a wide swath through the crazed fashion world of New York, goes wild when it comes to patterns, colors, and concepts.
Her new "flower power" collection, riots of blossoms bursting out on unconventional separates, is reminiscent of the sixties:
a sort of "rich hippie" look, geared toward the girl who bops from a casual day scene to a trendy club scene with funk and
flair. Where does this kind of inspiration come from? From music, says Sui- the very music she's heard reverberating off the
walls of small clubs nationwide, where "garage bands" have been experimenting with new strains of psychedelic sounds. New
sounds, new styles- Anna Sui is keeper of the new beat. Rayon challis blouse ($75) and skirt ($48) and crushed velvet vest
($76), Anna Sui at Soho Showroom. Earrings, Tacque, Pantyhose, Hot Sox, Shoes, Oomphies.
