Last week during the Guardian Sunway Pyramid new store unveiling event, we were told that there will be another event the next following week on a special collaboration with Anna Sui for Guardian Malaysia X Anna Sui Luggage Collection. Needless to say most of the girls verbally RSVP-ed themselves for the event because who will say no to Anna Sui?!
Every year Guardian will come out with a loyalty programme just for Guardian shoppers, whereas you will get stamps to collect and then make a purchase at a special price on promoted items. This year, Guardian Malaysia partnered with Anna Sui to develop a few exclusive design luggage collection. According to Christina Low, Marketing Director of Guardian Health and Beauty Sdn Bhd, the luggage collection was inspired by Anna Sui perfume, butterflies, roses, colours of bright pop art, fuchsia and orange. And each design was inspired by different events in Anna Sui’s career.
Here are the stories behind each design, as provided by Anna Sui herself:
24-Inch Trolley Bag
The pattern comes from a Mid-century modern tea towel, with a barber shop quartet theme. It originally appeared in Anna Sui’s Fall 2012 collection, which was inspired by the work of Charles and Ray Eames, and their collection of Folk Art Americana. It’s customized with Anna Sui slogans, perfume bottles and lipstick tubes.
20-Inch Trolley Bag
The butterfly print came from Anna Sui’s dresses in her Spring 2009 collection. The colours of the original pattern were quite similar to the way they are on the luggage. Some of the butterflies have been replaced with bottles of Anna Sui’s Romantica fragrance.
The rose bordered stripe design was originally done-up in black and white, with red flowers for a dress in Anna Sui’s Spring 2007 collection. It remains one of the most iconic Anna Sui prints. A runway shot of the dress is on the cover of her new book, The World of Anna Sui.
The pattern is derived from various Anna Sui cosmetic boxes over the years.
