Mixing patterns, colors, and textures possibly better than any other designer, Anna Sui once again proved why she is queen of the catwalk. Her clothes had a wearable, vintage-esque vibe, but they were also clearly rooted in rock-and-roll with a whimsical sensibility. Sui’s ability to seamlessly mix different points of view is astounding. Nothing looked as though it was overly styled, but the amount of work put into pairing fringe with bright hues to achieve memorable looks is impressive.

Heart print tights, statement-making chunky shoes, and several Pocahontas inspired numbers worked in harmony, portraying looks that harkened back to Gustav Klimt. Directionally, this bold show covered a lot of ground, but Sui tied it all together. The bird motif was interspersed throughout different looks, and the show seemed to speak to high art. This was clearly the designer’s vision of frenzied fashion amped up in a playful drama.
