Anna Sui Envisions a House Dress-Heavy Spring 2021

Looks from the Spring 2021 Anna Sui collection. 

Home is where the heart is — and in the case of Anna Sui’s Spring 2021 collection, it’s also where the flowy, apron-inspired pinafore frocks and crochet lace-trim Teva sandals are. 

Inspired by the designer’s childhood, as well as the Depression-era watercolorist Charles Burchfield and the French Impressionist painter Berthe Morisot, Sui dreamt up a collection with a homespun feel. Fashion’s favorite quarantine garment — the house dress — appears in several iterations, from covered in soothing mauve florals to embellished with intricate eyelet details and embroideries. Other household wardrobe staples featured include quilted jackets, printed shorts, embellished sweatshirts and negligée maxi dresses. There were even old T-shirts reimagined with tie-dye, which Sui made in partnership with a Philadelphia-based textile design studio that works with deadstock clothing.
