Sui has been the back of my mind for quite a while. I own one piece, which I bought from her Soho shop in 1993: it’s a pistachio-colored pleather jacket in a funky lab-coat shape, with covered buttons.
I wore it many a spring and, even though the pleather is now cracked and relegated to my closet, I can’t throw it out because it reminds me of some early happy trips to Soho.
In recent years, though, although I always pop in to Sui’s shop, I haven’t been interested in her line. Her outrageous prints and shapes had become a little cliche, in my opinion, and needed to be refreshed.
Sui has done just that. Although I’m not fond of her St. Pauli girl looks, I’m loving her Mexican-inspired embroidered sheaths and her raffia sandals. Here are some of my favorite pieces:
Just a few inches longer, please, before it hits the shops!
The Erickson Beamon jewelry makes this dress less bare, more wearable for day:

Love the colors and the fringe detail at the bottom:
I'd like the scarf (worn here as belt) from this ensemble:
Just perfect for the beach:
When's spring, again?
