Loco for Suno



For me, the best on show at NY Fashion Week was Suno. Fresh, cheeky and all about an eccelctic print-on-print mix, Suno is seriously making me swoon.

While I love the threads, it's also the story behind Suno that makes this label one of a kind. Suno was formed in 2008 by Max Osterweis who has spent the past decade collecting vintage textiles from Kenya. Today, Osterweis employs pattern makers in NYC and local talent in Kenya for his fair trade, artisanal workshops. So, it really is no exaggeration to say that each garment is a piece of art!

Anyway, I'll have one of each thanks - including a pair of killer pins so I can get away with those shorter-than-short minis!


  1. hey you have the pins to pull them off! what are you talking about ; )
    gorgeous stuff though im in love too. those colours and pattern are so fun!! x

  2. Hi!

    Thanks for featuring us back in August.

    If you liked Suno Im sure you will be interested in our latest collaboration with Patternity :)

    You can check it out here:

    Patternity is, as the name suggests, all about patterns. As well as allowing visitors to browse and share these through their archive Patternity also develop and source their very own brand of patterns. These are then applied to both objects and clothing, as can be seen on their fantastic kaleidoscopic wall, which they have guest-curated for Supermarket Sarah.

    I have attached a press release for you to look at, as well as sending you over a link of exclusive "making of" video and images. If there's anything else you might want, then please don't hesitate to get in touch. We'd love to be featured again on your super blog. of

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Have a nice week!
