Inspiration : The SUNO Girl
Hello to all the Fashion Lovers ; It’s always a great feeling to be here with some good news. Today I decided to write about a very inspirational brand ( Especially for myself ), that I’ve found lately. I have no idea if any of you have already heard about it, but to be honest, I just found about it a few days back. SUNO is the one I’m talking about. Here’s some details about the brand, for those who don’t know about it.
SUNO is a New York based womenswear label founded in 2008 by Max Osterweis in collaboration with designer Erin Beatty. The collection was launched in Spring 2009 after post-election violence threatened to damage the economy and industry in Kenya, a long time second home to Osterweis. Using vintage Kenyan textiles that Osterweis had been collecting for years, they created their first small collection, produced predominantly in Kenya. The collection was represented in its first season by Opening Ceremony, Maria Luisa, Enny di Monaco and Ikram. It’s available at more than 60 retailers worldwide, including Opening Ceremony, Ikram, The Webster, Net-a-Porter.com and Harvey Nichols.
I can say I’m a BIG fan of this brand. I love the way they mix those unique prints and fabrics together, while the clothes are fresh, but vintage at the same time. Those traditional fabrics reminds me of the clothes back in the 70′s, my most favorite era. About the prices, well maybe they’re a bit high, but I can surely wait for the sale time, and then if I found my favorite piece, I can order it online. And by the way, I found out about this amazing brand on my favorite online store, La Garconne.
And finally, here are some beautiful pieces that you can check out. Once again, I’m so in love with those colors and prints. But how do you like it ? Hope you’re inspired by the collection, the same as me.. Have a nice weekend all and enjoy your shopping ! xx
