SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PBteen, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE: WSM) portfolio of brands, today unveils an exclusive home collection in partnership with Anna Sui, the iconic fashion designer known for her trendsetting originality and instantly recognizable designs. The Anna Sui for PBteen Collection draws inspiration from Anna Sui’s iconic fashion designs from current and archived ready-to-wear collections, as well as her own interior projects including Sui’s fashion showroom, her New York City apartment and favorite furnishings from her own teenage bedroom. The dynamic collection is Sui’s first interior design collaboration, including furniture, bedding, lighting, decorative accessories and gear in her striking color palette and signature aesthetic. The collection of over 50 pieces, with prices ranging from $16.50 to $1,099, is now available at PBteen.com and PBteen stores nationwide.
“Anna Sui’s unparalleled originality and bold, free-spirited aesthetic translates into a collection that inspires our customers to express themselves through creativity and personal style.”
“I’m so excited about my new collaboration with PBteen. It truly features all the things I loved growing up…and still do! I created two different looks. One is based on the art nouveau feel of my boutiques, and the other one is inspired by the chinoiserie style you’d find in my own apartment.” Anna Sui
The Anna Sui for PBteen collection is a mix of romantic, ornate, bohemian and sophisticated aesthetics. Incorporating Sui’s love of Art Nouveau, the Flight of Fancy room is avant-garde, balancing multi-dimensional patterns and dramatic hues with feminine detail. The Flight of Fancy Quilt features sateen multicolored paisley with lace embroidery detailing. The black wicker Oversized Butterfly Wall Décor is a special piece inspired by Sui’s childhood headboard. Decorative accessories, including the Live Your Dream Pillow and Embroidered Boxes, add rock ‘n roll appeal, while the Butterfly Wall Hooks and Ooh La Love Artcomplete the fanciful design.
The Moth Ombre room features chinoiserie-inspired style with gilded lamps and ornate wall hangings. Based on a vintage piece from Sui’s teenage bedroom, the black Anna Sui Vanity is bold and glamorous, bringing elevated drama to a room, while the Peacock Jewelry Holder and Unicorn Graphic Pillow reflect Sui’s love of whimsy and bohemian charm.
“Through our partnership with Anna Sui, we created a truly unique home collection by reimagining Anna’s personal vintage treasures as well as her signature prints and patterns into beautiful décor and furnishings,” says Jennifer Kellor, President, PBteen. “Anna Sui’s unparalleled originality and bold, free-spirited aesthetic translates into a collection that inspires our customers to express themselves through creativity and personal style.”
