"This season's show was a passport to the American Arts and Crafts movement of the late nineteenth century, bleeding into the Art Nouveau that has been Sui's default position for years." -Tim Blanks via Style.com
One of my favorite art movements is Arts & Crafts. Anna Sui has such a specific, signature look that evolves with each new season. This collection was one of the highlights of New York Fashion Week for me. Anna took her inspiration from furniture designers of the Arts & Crafts movement (Roycroft and Rolhfs) and applied it to the clothing and the accessories. It presented a great opportunity for layering intricate textures and patterns.
