Suno Fall 2015

by Daniel Chivu

Care for a bit of madness? At Suno, designers Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty used Bertha Mason, the more than slightly insane Charlotte Brontë character, as their starting point. The message was conveyed through busy prints and a range of silhouettes, both of which the label has plenty of experience in executing deftly. However, this time the patterns fluctuated from delicate florals to lacquered stripes; there were even a few Fair Isle knits. At times the collection had a very pretty, romantic tone, like a sheer black dress embroidered with sweet flowers or a tea-length shirtdress, that was primly belted at the waist. But there was an underlying message of madness—little dolls hung off of string necklaces, a tangled printed skirt emerged from the bottom of a vest dress. But the most outstanding pieces were the ones where the pretty met the insanity, like a floaty silk gown featuring sheer black panes that worked their way up to the waist from the hem. All topped off with a chic sporty take on the Mary Jane pump (plus coifs by Odile Gilbert, whoused Kenra Professional products on the mods’ tresses), it seems the fashion set will have no problem going insane for this latest Suno offering.
