Anna Sui's New Bedding Line Was Inspired by a Trip to India
As we saw last fashion week, designers get some really weird, niche inspirations for their clothes and collections, like Mary Katrantzou's No. 2 pencil dresses. But Anna Sui isn't one of them—or, she wasn't when creating her new bedding collection.
Instead, Anna found inspiration for the newest leg of her home line (luggage came first) while on vacation with her nieces in India. When Anna took the girls to explore a woodblocking factory, she fell in love with the bold, geometric prints they stamped out onto paper-thin saris, and figured it would make a cool look on more plush bedding, too. (Check out her moment of inspiration at left—that's Anna with the black hair and bangs, but sadly no cartoon light bulb over her head.)
We think it works. The line, which ranges from $53 for a pillow cover to $423 for a dorm set, looks very cozy but still stays true the baroque, eclectic look of Anna's clothing collections. With her signature black and purple color combination heightened by elaborate patterns and borders, the bedding's anything but sleepy—in a good way. (It'd give any room a hip boutique hotel sort of vibe in three seconds flat, which we really like, since those interesting and funky—but not dirty hippie—home goods can be really hard to find.)
