Anna Sui stuck to the ’60s for Spring 2015, drawing inspiration from a jacket made for George Harrison out of vintage Sanderson linens, hand-painted jackets worn by John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix, and Nigel Weymouth, who designed posters and sold them in his boutique, Granny Takes a Trip. Titled “Kosmik Rock Star,” the collection incorporates reproductions of prints found in Weymouth’s posters—think the man in the moon, kewpie dolls, the solar system, cats, and of course, flowers. Far from reserved, the collection is full of mix and match garments, including high-waisted wide-leg pants, flowing dresses, and dark denim shorts paired with a see through silicone-like shirt, white neck scarf, and denim jacket. A few men also walked the runway, one of whom donned a silver metallic jumpsuit and cosmic print scarf. The collection was whimsical and daring, but Sui pulled it together for a show filled with at least one piece for everyone.
