Anna Scholz evokes 'Wonderland' themes of exploring new terrain

Aug '09
Popular plus size designer, Anna Scholz has dubbed her latest collection “Wonderland” in keeping with the fantastical prints and colours that she favours. In addition, multiple worlds and eras comingle in the collection, lending it a sense of playfulness and possibility.

BRAVE NEW WORLDS
This collection's prints conjure computer game landscapes and technicolour, otherworldy gardens. Jungle cat prints romp alongside geometric graphics. Blocks of bold brights buttress cosmic swirls.

Past and future also mingle in Anna's designs which often combine retro details in fresh new silhouettes. A swingy 50s style coat is modernized with a bold black and white Pac-Man print. Her 70s style maxi dress with wide pointed collar is updated and fresh in an earth tone mosaic print.

Such re-imagined classics further evoke magical “Wonderland” themes of exploring new terrain or slipping through a portal into a bygone era.

MAD FOR COLOUR
The first instalment of Autumn-Winter 09 pieces on the web shop are indeed colour-driven and bold as well as featuring all the easy glamour and effortless sex appeal that fans have come to expect from Anna Scholz's plus size designs.

Anna's new mosaic print on buttery soft silk is a study in understated cool. The earth tones of the print exude a subtle, low-key glamour in the form of a silk wrap maxi dress and in the clean, straight lines of a shorter kaftan dress. The new paisley print is a brilliant mix of neutrals mixed with bright pink, red and purple on a sumptuous silk tunic dress.

Further, a swingy 50s jacket in the black and white Pac-Man print puts a grown-up spin on the current rage for computer graphic patterns. Warm autumnal yellow, red, taupe and beige swirl in large geometric shapes on the roomy but feminine hip-length body of Anna's silk satin sequin kaftan. Her black and white leopard print silk satin pieces with gunmetal sequins impart a cool prowess as does a zebra print in plum and nude on delicate georgette.

For a casual but sharp look, the new collection's comfortable knit staples with plenty of feminine sass are not to be missed. Indeed the season's colour blocking trend is brought to justice in alternating blocks of hot pink and black on Anna's supple viscose jersey belted dress. Black zigzag stripes add a jolt to the sleeves of a flattering wine-coloured wrap dress. Yummy cotton cashmere pieces will be cozy all season long. And adorable tiger and French bulldog graphics on chic slash neck Ts are funky layering pieces.

THE PERFECT PLUS SIZE LOOK
The use of luxury fabrics and cut to create an elongated elegant silhouette is a hallmark of Anna's plus size designs and curvy women's clothing. Sumptuous double silk caresses the skin. Printed viscose jersey pieces have a surprisingly weighty, expensive look and feel. Just a touch of stretch gives both movement and structure to classic tailoring pieces.

Attention to detail andthe perfect fit are always a priority with Anna-- herself a former plus size model. The empire waist and wrap style of the new silk mosaic maxi dress slenderizes the plus size figure. The cross front and gathered empire waist band of the new ripple print dress flatter the bust and waist. Ruching down one side of the side-gathered dress play up curves and give the dress texture without looking bulky. Anna always incorporates these flattering “tricks” into sexy, contemporary plus size fashions.
