Some Suno

Some Suno

>> I still have a TON of things to plough through and just to clarify, I'm not at New York Fashion Week for my blog so unfortunately, my no. 1 priority is here, not the blog.  I will be squeezing in as muchie as possible though.  First up, am I predictable or what?  I very nearly didn't walk into Suno's presentation at Mac x Milk studios on Saturday because I was rather pre-occupied with err…fish tacos and getting hold of Gary Graham who was presenting next door.  That said when no less than three people said to me "Suno is So You", and given my track record of being highly predictable with my taste factor, I took a gander…

And… what do you know…

…Suno-Tastic.  Suno-Sunny-Delight.  Sassy-Suno… let's suggest some more shall we? 

For some reason, their website does funny things to my ickle PC but I gather that Suno takes fabrics from Kenya artisans and imports them here to do all the design/development work.  I'm reminded of ASOS' upcoming Africa project which uses a small production unit in Kenya called Soko.  Except with Suno's pieces, plenty of effort has been put into the shapes and print mixing so that ethnic origins aren't the primary eye-catching point.  It's pretty much a smorgasbord of prints here that are ripe for intermixing.  I've learnt my lesson well and truly now.  No more fish tacos and yes, siree, you can read me like a blank sheet of paper.

    I love the mixes of patterns. A great collection. Love the way they have combined the prints so cleverley. Like you said the collection is so not just about the prints, there is so much more there.

    LOL. It does remind me of you. Great shapes and colors and layering. I like that there’s a whole lot going on, but none of it makes me dizzy. Design at its finest.

    Ah yes! I thought you would post about them here! 😀
    I hadn’t heard about this brand before and I’m so impressed! I spent some time googling them and the kanga fabrics were made in Kenya thus supporting people that have a lot of need for it. The designer has spent about a decade or so in Kenya studying or working with the fabrics and decided to design 2 years ago. I looked up their other collections (look for them on facebook, the site isn’t working with me either) and I love them too but so far I think this is the best. Can’t wait to see what they’ll do next.

    Oh My gosh Susie! thanks so much for sharing this. Not much has been tickling my fancy recently and the Suno collection is just astounding. I really need (not want) some, if not all, of these pieces in my possession. Absolutely brilliant and great styling too!

    Oh wow, it looks even better up close. Lovely clashing patterns.

    those patterns are fantastic, and with structure too! there’s nothing quite as disappointing as a lovely pattern and a disappointing lack or architecture to a garment. the last shoe are a treat, too.
