Leave it to creative queen Anna Sui to present a captivating collection of ’60s-inspired prints, patterns and rich velvets that Hollywood hippies like Kate Hudson and Vanessa Hudgens will find irresistible.
Get ready to inject your wardrobe with a Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band vibe thanks to designer Anna Sui, who has brilliantly reinterpreted the era for you in her fall 2016 collection. Sui takes inspiration from the British pop art look of the album cover as well as from the fabulously hot ’60s store, Biba, which London girls flocked to for its selection of bohemian meets psychedelic meets art nouveau meets rock ‘n’ roll fast fashion.
Biba was all about the look of the moment, capturing the style of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and all of their trendsetting wives and girlfriends. Now Anna has affectionately updated those looks for the modern woman with a 60s state of mind, who wants to wear richly patterned and colored dresses with matching swingy jackets to work, play and wherever. These looks are for the woman who wants to stand out from the crowd in patchworks and floral, pussycat, peacock and butterfly prints.
Anna loves to mix contrasting patterns as well as textures like chiffon and wool houndstooth, velvet and “Victorian” fur. Crushed velvet and satin are staples and colors like azure, plum, magenta, forest, blush, cassis and jade are so delicious and addictive, you’ll never, ever want to go back to neutrals.
So take a look at Anna Sui’s ’60s-meets-new-Millenium Fall 2016 collection and let me know how much you love it!
