Oh, Anna!

As previously reported, the near-goddess Anna Sui has designed a collection for us penniless day-laborers, available at Target starting in mid-September. Images have come out of that collection, and I flipped out over most all of them. Check out the full slide show from NY Mag's blog, The Cut.

However, Nylon Mag later reported that several of these looks are borrowed from past Anna Sui shows. Is it just me who's left feeling a little cheated? I mean, the woman says she's using the ladies in the Gossip Girl cast to inspire her collection, but she just rummages through stuff she's already done in order to find pieces that are vaguely reminiscent of her alleged muses? Let's not lie, I'm excited to buy ALL OF THOSE PIECES and have my own (affordable) versions from her ready-to-wear lines, but where's the design challenge in that?

I'm left disgruntled and sans any satisfactory conclusions. Thoughts?
