Gone are the staples of Pop, punk, psychedelia, and New Wave. Victorianna, the collection presented by Anna Sui last Monday, transports us to a punched-up, frosted land of edgy springtime confectionary delight.
Anna explained in a preview, the Spring SS20 show was about prints, fabrics, and a totally new colour palette. Together these blended elements painted a modern and unapologetic picture of femininity. Effortlessly showing that fanciful and light-hearted aesthetics can steal the imagination in an environment saturated by streetwear and dark embellishments. With layered, over-flowing botanical elements, Sui’s women looked confident and positive as they floated down the runway set to the soundtrack of bluesy meditation. All while keeping Anna’s relaxed energy and colourful eclectism.
An additional touch to a collection full of dreamy saturated pastels, show-stealing sunglasses styled seven looks: look 6 and 14 featuring aviators embellished by a little heart on the bottom left corner of lightly tinted lenses; and look 9, 17, 32, 38 and 47 featuring bird wing sunglasses in shades of lemon curd, pale pistachio and dusty rose – like the confectionary colours of fancifully frosted cupcakes.
