Anna Sui Spring/Summer 2013 RTW – New York Fashion Week

You can always expect the unexpected, the punk and bold from Anna Sui and like always, this year too, the designer managed to surprise at New York Fashion Week. Trying to always bring together the good and bad girls, Sui always manages to create a solid theme that is different from all the others. For the Anna Sui spring/summer 2013 collection, she drew inspiration from French history and interior designer Madeline Castaige, who is well-known for her love affair with blue, leopard-print carpets and all-things Deuxième Empire. Mixing French touches with 70s-inspired punk details, Sui managed to create the bold image of the Anna Sui girl, who, regardless of her look, always stays a lady.


Denim and chambray were the focus of the Anna Sui spring 2013 collection, which came heavily layered with her signature poofed crinoline dresses, rompers and chiffon tops, all featuring dizzy prints and the iconic blue color. There was an entire line of denim and chambray shorts, shirts, vests, dresses and leggings that came embellished with pearls and jet beading creating an alluring Baroque vibe. Dresses were always matched either with pants or leggings, and there was plenty of room for fishnet ripped tops, jumpsuits and red and blue plaids. Motorcycle jackets, breezy separates, skull cameos, pointy sweetheart shoes and neon wigs gave lots of attitude to the collection. Definitely not for faint-hearted!
Apparently, the technicolor hair dying is still going to rule in the upcoming season, as the Anna Sui models walked down the catwalk wearing pieces of blue, pink and lilac hair in the front part of their heads, while the rest of the hair was gathered into a polished ponytail. The face was bare and natural, and the models had cat eyes colored in the same hue as their wigs.
