Quote of Note | Anna Sui

“I love history. I love art. I like to mix it all together, but in the end it somehow has to all make sense. I mean I love ’60s psychedelic posters, but those were originally inspired by the whole Art Nouveau movement. So it’s important for me when I see something I like to go back and find out where it really came from. That’s also a way of educating myself and understanding what I love.”

-Fashion designer Anna Sui, whose spring 2011 collection was inspired by “the dreamy twilight mood and vast heartland lanscapes” of Terrence Malick‘s 1978 film Days of Heaven. Sui will show her fall collection on February 16 at Lincoln Center.
