The look of Anna Sui spring 2015
From research based on the official Anna Sui Pinterest page I know that Sui called the collection “Kozmik Rock Star”. Inspired the spirit of swinging London during the 60s and 70s and of boutiques like Granny Takes A Trip, I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet, Mr. Freedom, Hung On You, and A Dandy In Aspic.
Below are my three favorite images of Sui's mood board for this catwalk show. All taken from her Pinterest mood board, to view full board CLICK HERE!
As I have to create a look which is based around spring/summer inspired by Anna Sui I thought that it is important to understand what this collection was all about. Given that her collection was inspired by the 60's and 70's I have done further research of these eras to help with my design development for my spring/summer look.
Although I know that Sui was highly inspired by The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and Jimmy Page I can vision the inspiration for my makeup look to be inspired by other iconic figures of the 60's.
Julie Christie was a popular beauty icon during the 60's, also a British movie legend. I think that she can be a good person to take inspiration from for the spring/summer shoot because she is beautiful and without being over the top, which is something I personally relate to when thinking about Anna Sui as a brand. The image below is of Christie in the 60's in an editorial magazine.
