Have you ever heard of SUNO?
Anna first introduced me to the label in May when she wore this gorgeous pleated dress (and paired it with her drool-worthy Prada bag). Ever since I’ve become obsessed with the incredible patterns and textiles that have made the brand so famous.
A little history…
“Max Osterweis first conceived of SUNO, a New York based womenswear label, in 2008 after witnessing post-election violence in Kenya. Utilizing the vast collection of Kenyan Kangas that he had been collecting for years, Max joined forces with designer Erin Beatty to launch a high-end collection with a conscience.
SUNO utilizes the local talent of Kenya, India, Peru and New York to create a collection of unique prints, textures and embroideries.
SUNO was a 2011 and 2012 finalist in the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund, and a 2012 Nominee and 2013 Winner of the CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear.”
Pretty amazing right? I love the idea of a collection with a conscience. But I think it’s the true beauty and craftsmanship in this blazer that really has me hooked on the label.
