Spotlight on: Suno

In boho luxe, Fashion on April 4, 2010 at 3:34 pm

Over the weekend, I popped into Barneys just to browse and, of course, came home with a new purchase-from Suno -a small New York based clothing line full of tribal prints and flowing textures. Suno, founded in 2008 by Max Osterweis, not only delivers fresh prints but his company employs fairtrade Kenyan artisans to carefully recreate the patterns and samples made in New York. His mission is to  raise awareness for growth and stability in a region plagued by violence. His Fall 2010 collection is inspired by late 1960s American interiors, traditional East African textiles, Klimt, and travel. Here are some examples of his brilliance at patterns and more so, mixing patterns.

Looks from Spring/Summer 2010

The blouse in the bottom picture is my newest purchase.

Suno was just featured in the April Issue of Vogue.

  1. Cute stuff! I love the ruffled shoulder on the blouse you bought.

  2. Oh no! I want the blouse and the dress!
