ANDREEA ANGELESCU 24 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | DECEMBER 2017 Runway Report arful The two topknots mirror the oversize ears of iconic Disney character Minnie Mouse. ODD BALLS Two youthful top twists play to the eccentric side of beauty at Anna Sui. —KARIE L. FROST F amed Italian fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli knew how to throw a party; her dalliances in the Surrealist and Dada art movements ensured that personalities like Salvador Dalí and Jean Cocteau would make an appearance at her soirees. The cast of characters at these parties was eccentric to say the least, and modern-day designer Anna Sui fi nds inspiration from these decadent gatherings for her fall/ winter 2017 show.

The resulting style is youthful, a little sassy and above all, eccentric—a look that would fi t right in with Schiap's most famous friends.
