Anna Sui Fall 2013 Runway Review

The 60s influence was graphic and in your face at the Anna Sui Fall 2013 runway show. Bold, bright, a little more geometric than we've come to expect of Sui — cleaner lines and sharper silhouettes. The show opened with a small dance number before Karlie Kloss stomped out to lead the pack. Seeing these prints is like watching a pop art show scroll by; the hosiery, too, is a show unto itself. 

These compelling details helped maintain interest as silhouettes didn't vary too much. A lot of A-line mini-dresses with perfectly coordinating coats. Done in metallic gold quilting, it definitely took on a singular personality, though, and this was a standout piece. More subdued colors and sophisticated shapes and patterns elevated the last portion of the collection. Sui's visual assault is easier to take in when it's black on black, gold on gold, white on white. Kloss also closed the show in a white laser-cut leather lace wedding mini with matching wraparound hood. Obvi.
