"Everything is really romantic and dreamy this season," Anna Sui said at her showroom. "It's much sweeter than Fall." Or, to put it in terms of Sui's beloved musical references, maybe we could say Resort is more Beatles than Stones. The designer turned out long ruffled peasant dresses, lace-trimmed bed jackets, and velvet burn-out tea dresses with flutter sleeves in a palette of dusty pinks, pale blues, and sea foam greens. Prints were mostly a variation on florals—there were roses, nosegays, and posies—but a cheeky cherry print (paired with a matching oversize brooch) stood out. It had a fanciful element that suits Sui and the season.
