Surf’s up for Anna Sui: The designer is teaming up with swim label O’Neill to put a retro spin on a 16-piece collection, which will include bikinis along with dresses, bell-bottoms, and footwear. Sui pulled motifs and silhouettes from the ’60s and ’70s for the collection, and she also looked back into her archives to influence the designs. Sui’s signature butterfly print will be featured throughout the collection. Dropping in April, Sui’s collab will sport prices below the $100 mark and will be available on the O’Neill website, in their shops, and at the Anna Sui shop in New York. “I have always been drawn toward the Californian free-spirited lifestyle, which is at the core of the O’Neill brand,” The designer told WWD. “My Bohemian style translates into their surf culture and sportswear perfectly.” Haute tides!
