Anna Sui Fall Winter 2019-2020 New York. Anna Sui is one of New York’s most beloved and accomplished fashion designers, known for creating contemporary original clothing inspired by spectacular amounts of research into vintage styles and cultural arcana. Sui joined New York’s intensely creative cultural underground in the 1970s, forging important relationships in the worlds of fashion, photography, art, music, and design. Anna Sui’s love of vibrant, psychedelic posters from the Sixties and Seventies influenced her cheerful, campy fall collection. Bright faux fur coats, tweeds, embellished knit cardigans, and silk dresses – are the look of Anna Sui Fall Winter 2019-2020 collection.
Sixties pop poster backdrop set the tone for Anna Sui Fall Winter 2019-2020 show. “Poptimistic,” she called it for fall, pulling vibrant colors from the works of Gary Grimshaw, Victor Moscoso, Milton Glaser, Carl Lundgren, David Palladini, as well as Disney illustrator Mary Blair and cartoonist David Weidman into the collection. As the show started, models emerged against the poster wall backdrop.
A nubby pumpkin-cord button-up skirt and jacket nicely offset a wonderful purple feather trimmed metallic jacquard floral frock. Floral blooms aplenty— printed on ruffled blouses and technical outerwear as well as in burnout velvet, sequins or metallic jacquard on modest but eccentric dresses — were a counterpoint to a few textural plaids, velvet, animal prints or solid offerings, like a green mohair and faux fur coat. Sui topped the girls off with vibrant tights, punky wigs, fluffy hats and chunky, buckled mary janes from John Fluevog to add to the cheerful, slightly campy vibe that was rooted in major sixties and seventies nostalgia.
