Sui's girls are usually accessorized to the hilt, and there were a few fab wheelies in a carpetbagger velvet print, but some models hit the runway sans belt, bag, or hat. The lack of add-ons allowed for closer inspection of the clothes themselves, and this season there were some knockouts. An iridescent midnight-blue wrap dress puffed out below the waist, right on trend. Equally of the moment were a striped wool jacket and knickers worn with a ruffle-front ivory blouse. Meanwhile, Sui's metallic Jacquard dress will make you wish for the days, not so long ago, when boho was the biggest thing.
