Anna Sui showcased a nostalgic collage that mixed the Victorian age and late-’60s counter-culture, obtaining a kaleidoscope of colours and materials with a wide variety of accessories that ranged from round sunglasses to passementerie belts, ethnic jewellery to maxi canvas haversacks. The long printed hippie dresses and lace and needlework frocks were great. Folk blouses and frayed hot pants were paired with lace-up boots while the shapes ranged from loose through layered to tapered. The clash of colours and materials was emphasised by tie-dye effects and Art Nouveau-style prints, ethnic motifs and esoteric symbols, for a joyful homage to female freedom.
