Fine Print

In case your restless schedule leaves little time to travel and even less time to stalk ethnic finds along the way, Suno is your one-stop shop for perfectly outrageous ensembles. The mishmash of fine prints and disparate textiles slay me. I'm itching to rip into my stash of fabric remnants pronto.

Oh my gosh -- so weird. I'm writing a post on Japanese textiles and Suno right now -- and you popped up in my rss feed. Are the colors and patterns insane? Love them. I highly recommend taking a look at Wafrica also: http://www.wafrica.jp/.

Such fun patterns, but the grey blue lipstick? That's a little too much slaying (as in dead) for me...

OH my gosh, love this stuff, and anything from Africa actually. I have a textile from Kenya that is my go-to Fall scarf; can't wait to bring it out again, just a few more weeks!

Saw this line at Opening Ceremony last time I was in New York and it was super rad!

Funny that you post this, because
I just read a great article about the designer at HandEye Magazine (http://www.handeyemagazine.com/node/43)
Very inspirational!
And while you are visiting HandEye also read up on Vlisco.

I love all sorts of handprinted textiles, and the Suno shapes are amazing, and the pieces at Opening Ceremony were all one of a kinds!
(but also hella pricey.)

Thanks!

Also just had this thought- this photo shoot reminds me of the Junya Watanabe runway show from last season with the exaggerated head ornaments...

I would imagine that If *MOI* was stylin' the Suno, I would try not to make it look too much like Junya?

What do ya'll think?

AWESOME links, Susan!! Thanks a million and I now have my afternoon reading (and drooling) material. The hats certainly seem "inspired" by Junya's, but since I'm always game for anything obnoxious piled high on the head, seeing another designer's take on it makes me giddy. But yes, given that both lines have the same concept (ethnic textiles, wild patters, unique shapes), it is a bit too close for comfort in the did-they-rip-that-from-Junya category!
