Born in Detroit, 45-year-old Parsons-educated Anna Sui never really wavers from her girly/punky/preppy/babydoll formula, but somehow, it always works. For spring 2010, Sui showed retro funky schoolgirl, with lots of plaid, zany '60s patterns and a healthy dose of fun.
The theme seemed to be circus, with a nod to Mary Quant. I'm not sold on the tights, but the dress is cute!
A little window-pane pattern suit for grown-up schoolgirls.
Styled in to a riot of color, this vest and dress would look great farther away from each other, no? Also: How cute is Chanel Iman?
The collection veered into shine, which was maybe not the best direction.
But a plaid shrunken blazer paired with matching walking shorts? Could go punk or prep, and looks pulled-together and fun.
I'm digging the little vests, and the blouses, even if I wouldn't wear them.
I wouldn't wear this either, but it made me smile.
That punchy blue blazer could just as easily be paired with dark denim jeans; the dress has a nod to the psychadelic '60s without looking dirty messy hippie.
