My second 10-minute sketch for the Sketchbook Project: Anna Sui RTW SS’12, pencil and pencil crayon. I’m not getting the intensity of colour I like with pencil crayons. I might switch it up and use my watercolour pencils sparingly. I kinda like how this is turning into a mini experiment and the 10-minute limit is manageable. But I must admit, it is stressful. Ten minutes goes by REALLY QUICKLY! ack! and I usually have my iPhone counting down the time beside me – no pressure!
Here are some of my favourite looks from the collection. Lots of prints and colour and 40’s glam. Anna Sui has a style that’s distinctly her own. It’s always fun and flirty and just kawaii. I also love her branding. Her logo and product packaging is adorable and so is her website. I visited her NoHo store when I was in New York and it is almost exactly like the experience on her website.
