Anna Sui Fall/Winter 2012-2013

Anna Sui showed a collection full of clothes that told there own story. The clothes had precision and polish. The stories within the collection were caftans inspired by those worn by Elizabeth Tayor, commercial art of Fellini favorite John Alcorn, the valentine card illustrators Walter and Naiad Einsel and the Todd Oldham book about textile designer Alexander Girard. Plenty of stories but it all worked well in this presentation. There were also some folkloric touches that Sui is good at like the handcrafted owl applique which was attached to a velvet varsity jacket over brown corduroy shorts that is a look perfect for Twiggy.

A beautiful glittery plaid shift topped by a matching coat and paired with kitten heels looked perfect for the Jean Shrimpton type. Anna Sui on the long run in this season made sure she created clothes that would walk off the runway and be worn in the streets. And you know what? That she did a great job!
