Anna Sui F/W 15

In the hands of a lesser designer a collection based on Vikings would begin and end with literal Norse references and a slew of oversized furs; thankfully Anna Sui has always taken the road less traveled. The designer’s starting point may have been The History Channel’s steamy historical drama, Vikings but Sui merged the source material with her own hippie sensibilities. Models sported tribal face-paint courtesy of Pat McGrath as they stomped down Sui’s runway in mixed prints and geek glasses. Working working an array of psychedelic patterns into an appealing melange, Sui channeled the groovy vibe of the late sixties as much as the wild spirit of the Viking age. Moments of beauty came when Sui fully embraced both of her motifs: dressing Xiao Wen Ju in a smocked blouse and embroidered blouse that looked straight out of the Biba years and closing the show with Jamie Bochert in an oversized horned helmet of the knit variety.
