SUNO FALL/WINTER 2015 NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
Suno opened with a somber black coat—which is quite intersting because we normally do not see black at Suno. before launching into a narrative invoking both English and Caribbean references. It was a shift in tone that felt like progress for the label, the contrast was evident in such standouts as a pair of otherwise decorous floral tea dresses with scandalously high sheer godets and a ribbed sweater dress with coated stripes that read sexy (again, not usually a Suno signature). Fair Isle sweaters topped skirts made of flyaway strips of wool that recalled, in the best possible way, scrubbers inside a car wash; the flags of the Caribbean translated into all manner of stripes.
The designers deployed fur for the first time, mostly as an accent; on one coat, mink was invisibly pieced together in a colorful flower intarsia. Demure dresses in floral jacquards and hand-embroidered tulle—the latter made in India, as per Suno’s commitment to global artisan sourcing—looked just as rich. Perhaps the liveliest look was a pair of silk skirts with dangling ribbons inserted into pleats that danced as the models walked. Come fall, they’re likely to inspire a more benign sort of madness.
