For the last 30 years, New York-based designer Anna Sui has been making a major impact on the runways with her part bohemian, part colorful cowgirl, part rock & roll designs. To celebrate her illustrious 30 years in the industry, Sui is releasing a retrospective book, titled Anna Sui, and a three-piece capsule collection of archival looks for Anthropologie. To be specific, Sui mined her colossal archives and selected three of her favorite dresses from past collections to re-issue. “These were everyone’s favorites from my list of ‘greatest hits’!” says Sui. Her choices?

The capsule collection will arrive in select Anthropologie stores in November; however, all three are available online at Anthropologie.com now. The dresses retail from $388 to $498.
