Today during New York Fashion Week (NYFW), fashion designer Anna Sui virtually unveiled her “Heartland” collection for Spring/ Summer 2021. During the pandemic and like so many of us, Anna Sui has spent most of her time inside, in fact, more than she ever has since childhood.
In her collection statement, Anna states: “It is about “comfort, security, the smells of delectable meals and desserts being made with care, the space to think about what is happening in the world and the people I love.”
The beginning of Anna Sui’s short film starts with an image of delicious pie. It’s a meaningful sentiment that led to the beautiful “Heartland” lineup that was homespun in spirit and sweet-as-pie.
For the collection, Anna Sui was Inspired by depression-era watercolors of Charles Burchfield and French Impressionist painter Berthe Morisot. Throughout the show, she delivered a chic play on clothes that exuded comfort without forsaking style and Sui’s irreverent brand of American cool.
With a DIY touch, Sui offered pinafore, lace, and negligée maxi dresses, and embellished sweaters. Teva sandals added to the outfit.
Her thought for the collection is clothes with a homespun feel that included comfortable dresses with eyelet lace and trims, old t-shirts reimagined with tie-dye, and other beautiful homemade things such as quilts.
