Anna Sui Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week spring 2014 could never look dreamier and more romantic: the Anna Sui spring/summer 2014 collection was on the runway, sending out 51 goddess-like looks featuring copper wallpaper prints and charming sienna nouveau floral patterns. It was like being lost in the middle of a forest in the dark, where you could hopelessly fall in love with the dreamy mood and the fashionable atmosphere created by those charming goddesses walking down the runway, wearing otherworldly pieces with lots of fringed trims, embroidery details, watercolor effects and artisanal details. It was an unexpected collection that was setting its own trends, different from all the others, a thing that only Anna Sui could do!

The inspiration behind the Anna Sui spring/summer 2014 collection this time served the English Pre-Raphaelite paintings that she saw at the Tate Modern during one of her recent trips to London. As the designer describes her collection, “In the 1960s there was a Pre-Raphaelite revival; as seen in the romantic clothing, psychedelic posters and exotic interiors favored by rock personalities. I’m looking at English Pre-Raphaelite paintings; my color palette comes directly from their luminous iridescent canvases.”
The result of such artistic work led to a cavalcade of music-festival-worthy looks, spectacular and romantic ones that you could have long been dreaming about. The collection is based on earth tones mainly, which come accompanied by blues, fuchsias and burnt reds. Actually, the pieces were so much abundant in prints, embroidery, appliqués and other decorations that you could hardly ever see solid colors there. The fabrics chosen were light and flowing and the dresses featured lots of layers, ruffles and draping for a stunning bohemian effect.

While the stunningly decorated dresses are incredibly wow-worthy in themselves, no less spectacular were the accessories in the Anna Sui spring/summer 2014 collection. There were lots of charming headbands, necklaces, bracelets, gladiator sandals, high-heeled shoes and shoulder bags that ideally finished off those romantic outfits. Anything else needed to look like a forest goddess? Yeah, don’t forget about your natural loose hair and minimal makeup!
