At the celebration of two decades of activity, Anna Sui launched the spring 2011 collection, a collection that really suits her style. The overall aspect is boho chic, with a hippie and native American inspiration.
You’ll see a variety of ethnic prints, embroidered and colorful pieces, natural and soft fabrics. The jewelry is made of sand beads, feathers, leather and other such hippie materials; chokers and forehead headbands also make us think of the 60′s-70′s . We love the large, double pocketed, suede shoulder bags, great carriers when in need.
Silk dresses are combine with large, chunky boots, which is the definition of boho-chic. Browns and blues make most of the color palette, combined with other earthy tones. Denim is the key to getting the casual, carefree look from the runway, especially when worn with hand-crocheted knits and vintage lace. Concerning shoes, wooden platforms are also present, as well as flat, comfy sandals.
The collection ends with more sophisticated pieces. Easy, floaty fabrics, in nude colors, make the models look like fairies. Speaking of which, the models of the presentation were indeed contemporary fairies, some of the most famous girls to have walked the runway: Lily Donaldson, Lindsey Wixson, Ginta Lapina, Freja Beha Erichsen, Frida Gustavsson, Fei Fei Sun, Abbey Lee Kershaw, etc.
