SunoSpring Summer 2015 New York

Runway Review
9/6/2014 Faith Cummings/fashionwirepress.com

Art coursed through the veins of Suno's latest collection with Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty looking to American artists Georgia O’Keeffe and Louise Bourgeois. The femininity the aforementioned injected into the industry in the mid-20th century was refreshing to the design duo, much like the fresh designs they sent down the runway for Spring: brimming with the prints synonymous with the brand coupled with an Americana sensibility.

If you've had your fill of stripes up until this point, you should brace yourself as designer after designer is embracing the classic pattern. It was shown here on boxy knits, a striking tunic, and a billowing halter maxi dress, in colorful bands of diverse widths. The print then returned in a more subdued grey and white vertical variation on an easy jacket, strapless ankle-grazing frock layered over a rolled-sleeve shirt, drawstring trousers, and a knit poncho that felt effortless when layered over cotton separates.

There were a couple of crisp looks that abandoned all frills for clean lines and an even cleaner palette. Naturally, those ensembles gave way to more prints - vibrant check patterns and blurred florals. Osterweis and Beatty took a dip in high-fashion territory with pieces that were whimsical, but not necessarily functional - roomy waistbands, relaxed fit shifts, and an eyelet skirt accented with a tied-sleeve detail hugging the hips.

The most fun was had with mixed patterns that spoke to Suno's signature: floral prints playing against a black and white square arrangement. A modern skirt and dresses with scarf hems showcased the hard-to-miss contrast, while frocks and blouses in a windowpane sequence that broke through to a dizzying maze print went for visual inundation when layered over a dot-emblazoned skirt and pants.

The lineup felt a little less eccentric than collections from Suno's past, but it had enough of the brand's signatures to feel both new and fresh.
