Anna Sui isn't known for her handbags, but this season I think they deserve a mention, as does her entire collection.
While I've always loved her prints and her embellished whimsical style in general, I've never been a huge fan of boho or the garish 60s vibe that often dominates her palette. But Fall '10 is definitely Anna Sui's season.
Combining the best of Art Nouveau and rock'n'roll pop influences, Sui took her collection to another level with designs inspired by Charles Rohlfs (an American Arts and Crafts furniture designer).
Most of the Sui bags have a streamlined carpet bag shape that bodes well for young starlet appeal. The contrast of mauve set on lizard is the kind of funky detail sure to win over the yummy mummy à la Mary-Louise Parker/Weeds types as well.
And this cool take on the doctor's bag should satisfy the most style conscious fashion girls. Brava Anna, keep on rocking!
