Anna Sui, F/W 15
Fashion designer Anna Sui is known for her creations that always satisfy avid fans who adore luscious, one-of-a-kind prints. The theme for her collections evolves, of course, but I remember taking a style cue from her runway show in 2012 and it´s accenting little printed dresses with bright tights.
For this year´s cold season though, Anna Sui´s fashion inspiration is about looking like a Viking princess in Scandi-print dresses, tops and skirts worn in the most untamed way possible, which includes your hair and makeup.
Notice that the looks in this collections speak of comfort and creativity — both worlds can cross.
1. Jacquard mini dress
Step back to mid-century in this folkloric print dress featuring a mix of lace and cotton-blend jacquard print. Complete the look with wine-hued leather accessories.
2. embroidered peplum top + wide-leg pants
This look exudes Scandinavian-inspired prints and pattern and it also boosts comfort in a way that you can move easily. The bottom looks like it´s a skirt but it´s actually a wide-leg pant.
3. Ann Sui
Anna Sui proved that printing Scandi-patterns on a silk is doable and that the result is totally fashionable. This vibrant print dress is made of silk-chiffon and it features a silhouette — billowy sleeves and a crocheted scalloped hem — that really make you think of the past. Wear the dress with flats or dress sandals.
4. Floral-Lace Fit-&-Flare Dress
Who would have thought that a fit-and-flare dress is also a Viking princess` favorite? Thanks to its lace and seam combo.
5. Bargello Blouse
Update your denim look with a hint of a Scandinavian-print. Wear this slouchy drape, modified chevron print blouse with high-waist, flared-hem denim pants.
6. Scalloped Scarf Print Dress
This is probably one of the best ways to revolutionize a drop-waist dress I´ve seen so far. The print of this silk dress is truly one-of-a kind.
7. oversized top + brocade high-rise shorts
If you´re enjoying the sun, these high-rise daisy-brocade shorts are great to update your summer prints. Wear it with an oversized top.
