SUNO SS12: One of Everything Please

This post is brought to you by Susie Lau of Style Bubble

If I had to sum up Suno’s debut runway show at Made in one single nut shell, it would be WANT ONE OF EVERYTHING please.  I don’t however do single nut shells very well so basically all you need to really know is that Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty have once again stepped up their print game and literally brought as much as possible to the table – in fabrications, in separate options, in colours, in textures and of course in their prints which have now made a definite aesthetic shift away from Suno’s Kenyan production roots.  What made it all gel together was the fact that where anything looked slightly muted such as a striped shirt was quickly counteracted with something that catches the details magpie eye – a lovely bit of broderie anglaise, watercolour prints, a bold bird flying across a lemon yellow wrap dress – anything that makes you look again.  Once again, you can’t quite tell what specific period or theme the duo are referencing but perhaps that’s the point when you could read it as anything from an English rose who runs a jam making class to 70s Gunne Sax girl, with the intangible twist of course.  Like I said, ONE OF EVERYTHING PLEASE.

    The metallic orange fabric/color of those shorts is to die for, and it contrast so well with that vintage floral print. Really wish they would had been a skirt though. The contrast paneling on the other garments is really lovely.
