Suno’s aesthetic remains entrenched in its artisanal African genesis — even if its actual production has moved on to other locations for manufacturing (Italy, Romania). Rather than focusing on a specific trend or concept for pre-fall, Erin Beatty focused on material with a craft vibe. “There’s a lot of original fabric development that’s one-of-a-kind to us, and we wanted it to feel as if it had been hand-painted or hand-sewn or hand-texturized,” she said, noting a preference for a darker, more primary palette of black, navy, green and yellow, which made the colorful stitchwork and beading pop in a rich way. A roomy navy dress with bright, vertical embroideries channeled sophisticated bohemia, while lean tunics in stretchy melange knits — some with braided details — gave the layered silhouettes a soft structure.
