spotlight: suno fall 2009

our first encounter with Suno NY by Max Osterweis was several weeks ago and we blogged about his use of kangas and african print here. this fall, Suno takes a walk on the wild side - lots of mixing and matching, clashing and more clashing, and some african print thrown in for good measure. as we've said before, many designers are looking at africa much less literally (i.e. they're not simply making ankara skirts) and are now incorporating it with a mish mash of other influences. here's a closer look at Suno's fall '09 collection:

I really like the attitude of these pieces! It has an urban African vibe that's very fierce!
