When a show opens with Karen Elson in a feathered headdress, prepare to mentally transport yourself to Coachella. Such was the vibe at Anna Sui's Spring 2014 show, where hippie-chic reigned supreme. There were bell sleeves, kimono jackets, and fringed anything (we counted vests, shorts, and a bikini top). The color spectrum was heavy on nude and tea-stained shades as well as sapphire and amethyst, although some glam snuck in: the last three dresses — worn by Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, and Miss Elson again — all featured gold lace, and a sequined pair of shorts snuck into the mix. We're hoping all of the runway accessories (the jewelry was made in partnership with Erickson Beamon) are produced for the headdresses alone. The dramatic piece worn for the finale look had a Game of Thrones vibe to it that'd be too good to pass up at retail.
