Nine West x Karen Elson

Anna Sui x Andrew Bolton x Steven Meisel x Jack White

It’s no secret that Anna Sui is a fashion industry darling. In 2009, Sui joined the ranks of American legends Bill Blass and Ralph Lauren when she won the CFDA Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award. And now the widely admired designer is working on a book about her 20-year legacy. She is collaborating with Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton on the bulk of the text while Steven Meisel has provided the introduction and Jack White (fearless front man of the White Stripes and husband to longtime Sui model Karen Elson) created the preface. Sui herself is contributing the foreword and over 400 images of her best moments in fashion. “The process of compiling and reliving favorite memories from my career was very gratifying,” Sui told WWD. The book will be published by Chronicle Books this Fall and is sure to include images of every supermodel from Naomi Campbell to Agyness Deyn in Sui’s sometimes bohemian, sometimes rocker but always cheerful designs. See some of our favorite images from the book below.
