Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis must have been in a cheerful mood when they designed Suno's Spring 2014 collection — because in addition to being filled with bright colors and generous silhouettes, this collection was downright cute. What else could you possibly call a boxy t-shirt paired with a shiny patterned skort, or a white empire-waist top with a blue-and-white floral printed skirt, or even the straw hats many of the models wore down the runway? Cute, cute, cute.
While there was bold color splashed throughout this lineup (a hibiscus-colored top and skirt seemed to get everyone talking), a few white pieces festooned with Swarovski crystals really caught our eye. And, a sign that one of Summer 2013's favorite garments is here to stay, one of those pieces was a crop top.
The latest opportunity to buy something stylish and simultaneously support a worthy charity comes courtesy of editor-beloved label Suno. The brand is pairing up with artist Shantell Martin to offer up tees and dresses that'll be sold exclusively on the brand's site. The pieces, featuring drawings by Martin, will provide 25 percent of sales to Brooklyn-based children's arts charity Apple Arts NYC. It's limited-edition, too, so shop now: there are only 100 tees ($75 each) and 24 dresses ($395 each).
Show off your playful side in cheeky patterns that are as fun as they are on-trend. With prints ranging from lipstick kisses to beetles to butterflies, the latest offerings will turn heads wherever you go. Make a bold statement in Suno's whimsical cell-phone-print dress, or take the minimal route in Marc by Marc Jacobs's adorable ladybug scarf. Ready to get in on the action? Shopping our favorite picks from Lanvin, Topshop, Kenzo, Band of Outsiders, and more.
We've all heard it before: "Blank is the new black." Truth is, no matter what you insert into that "blank," there will always be a new black as long as each season brings another trend-filled crop of runway shows. Which is fortunate for us, because there's plenty to look forward to now that Fall 2012's florals, strong shoulders, and oxblood seem a bit last year.
Whether it's swapping those flowers for plaid, severe lines for rounded ones, or burgundy for deep blue, you won't miss last year's looks once you say hello to 2013's freshest styles. See all eight designer-inspired trends to get you ready for the chilling months to come!
If Suno's Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis are feeling any pressure as a result of winning the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear earlier this month, you can't tell it from their Resort 2014 collection. In fact, this collection seems to epitomize everything that this design duo does best: pattern-mixing, interesting yet wearable silhouettes, and an unmistakable feeling of fun.
What else would one call the first dress in this collection, which mixes brown and blue stripes and a heart print with a blue lattice? What better way to characterize the plaid t-shirt with a spray of florals around the collar, or the blue-and-white striped jumpsuit with floral patch pockets? Even the fresh eye they've turned to fabric combinations (we're referring to the polka-dotted silk-polyester blend and, of course, the short-sleeved vinyl dress) seems more like a charming wink than a commitment to experiment with new territory. Not that we would mind if they did.
The CFDA just added more than 30 designers to its roster, and with favorites like Jennifer Fisher, Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis of Suno, and Danielle and Jodie Snyder of Dannijo joining the inner circle, we're celebrating their honors with a little Summer shopping.
