Anna Sui's esthetic
has always been retro bohemian chic with a Bloomsbury
era vibe. These garments tell the story of a modern
day woman who has an attic filled with the clothing
and the memories of her grandmother, a grandmother
who was the coolest kid in school.
Sui's line for Fall
2011 is scrumptious and eccentric. Most notable
is the amusing bear hat, a hat guaranteed to stop
traffic even in New York City. These are untraditional
clothes made from traditional fabrics and colored
with the colors of fall.
So wear Sui and bring
on the funk and fun.
