One of the most exciting shows I got to peep at NYFW was Suno's collection for Spring 2013.
The people watching was almost as good (almost!) as the clothing. Garance Dore, Bill Cunningham, Caroline Issa, Solange, and Anna Wintour! Every time we turned around a new name was blurted...would make for an excellent drinking game actually.
We got to poke around backstage, partake of the hair and make up prep/frenzy, and popped into the Cut/MADE photo booth. Hilarity ensued.
The highlight, which I for some reason had to be talked into, was posing for a pic with Suno designer Max Osterweis, one part of the Suno duo, which includes Erin Beatty. Thanks for talking me into it ladies!
Now for the fashion......the Spring collection echoed the decadent Kenyan textiles that made up the initial Suno collection, but in a more muted palette of grey, layered on yellow, pastels, florals and stripes. They have not lost the whimsy though, throwing in a floral splattered track suit and cell phone dress (which shouldn't work, but totally does) for good measure.
Personal favourites included the corn blue embroidered separates and a chic cream gown, replete with ruffles and dainty straps- an absolutely perfect pairing with the forties inspired waves and twists models sported.
And now, for some photos from the pros to do the collection justice.
