The Suno Fall 16’ collection offered a multiplicity of textures and patterns that added a new boldness to the brands aesthetic. Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis’s theme this season articulated ‘twisted traditional’ in a way that combined free-from silhouettes with an assertive femininity. High necklines, turtlenecks and bows drew attention to the neck and shoulders. Sleeves fell loose and hung low, accentuating the waist where fabrics fit tighter.
Plaids were emphasized heavily by expanding widely across fabrics, which created a certain zoomed-in look. Mixed tones of brown, blue and red paired with denim and wool, made the garments feel refreshingly familiar. Metallic floral detail and gold lamé fused with black made the dresses look daring yet delicate. The pieces exposed very little leg as only hints of the calf and ankle are revealed where the fabrics fall short.
Suno’s upcoming season offers conservatism with modesty and instills confidence that the distinctive textiles bring out. The stripes motif that reoccurs throughout creates universal symmetry that balances the overall collection. The theme innovatively illustrated the integration of new with old by enhancing what we already knew and leaving us with a revamped perspective.
We caught up with Morgan Taylory’s Danielle Candido, Nail Lead for Suno:
“So the line for Suno was this broad palette of color, texture and material. Like there was lamé, denim, wool and plaid. So we really wanted to find a way to ground all of that. So we took a real nice earth tone, “Latte Please”, the best way to describe it is chocolate pudding. It’s not a dark chocolate, it’s not a light tan, but it really brought together all those colors. The story of the line itself went from street wear to high fashion, and so we needed a color that could do casual to sophisticate it. So we used, Morgan Taylor’s Latte Please, two coats of it on the natural nail and beautiful natural length it’s so sharp and such an unusual choice, you don’t think of brown in that sense. So like the women who would wear the line, she’s got her own statement and her own way of doing things.”

This look was all about creating a graphic, yet chic style. By crisscrossing the beautiful, velvet satin ribbon, it helped bring an element of texture to the ponytail.
