Suno Fall 2012: The Softer Side of Print Mixing

Fairchild Archive

The Scene: Suno's Friday night time slot at downtown Milk Studios made for some seriously good people watching. Within the rowdy crowd, we spotted neon leopard print dresses, round sunglasses and rogue champagne flutes (from the lobby bar, no doubt). In short, exactly what we'd expect from fans of the playful, print-heavy line.

The Look: Designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty stretched their brand beyond its Kenyan-focused roots this season, offering tame and ladylike pieces (florals, polka dots) with their trademark punchy standbys (bold stripes, tribal prints). This new, softer side proved Suno can be experimental and buoyant in more ways than one.

Pieces We Want: The show's closing looks—especially the skirts. For such a standout piece, the sequin black pencil skirt sprinkled with a rainbow of flowers would work for a zillion different occasions and outfits. Striking but adaptable, it echoed the very reason why we love Suno.
