Anna Sui & Anna Sui Jeans by Gilmar
In 1993 Anna Sui's Spring collection filled up
Bloomingdale's Lexington Avenue windows
interspersed with my artwork. The Visual Director,
Robin Lauritano had a hunch that
Anna and I were a match. She was right!
Since that time we've collaborated on countless
projects. My work has appeared on every
imaginable type of fashion product including
umbrellas, raincoats, knapsacks, sweaters, silk
scarves, metal belt buckles and jewelry.
My interpretation of Anna's papier mache hat
head was promently featured in her pivital 1994
Silver Peruvians collection and is the Anna Sui
Jeans by Gilmar logo.
The head remains etched in glass above the
door of her Soho boutique.
