The Clothes: Demure, almost prairie-like separates in dust tones. Boxy tops were paired with oversized bottoms for a loose, summery silhouette, and most dresses featured a tiny cut out to reveal a slice of skin. As always, there were tons of prints; this season saw blue and white stripes, florals in orange, metallic, and pastel, and a cellphone print that was a bit weird, but just right in that SUNO way. A standout look was a matte sequin dress worn by Ophelie Rupp on the runway that was beautifully crafted and dressier than most SUNO offerings of the past.
The Hair & Makeup: Models had one 1940s-style twist in the front of their hair that was made into a chic bun by Odile Gilbert. MAC artist Carole Colombani created a “desert girl” look with brown and neutral tones on the eyes and contour around the cheeks to liven up the face.
The Soundtrack: Joy Division meets techno. Why is techno the de facto backbeat for NYFW?
The Vibe: The coolest place to be on a Friday night. Milk was bustling.
The Front Row: Everyone, literally. Solange Knowles sat with Jenna Lyons (dream team!), while Bill Cunningham snapped away next to Lynn Yeager. Phil Oh, Susie Lau, Garance Doré, Daphne Javitch, Kate Foley and the OC team, Shane Gabier and Chris Pieters of Creatures of the Wind, Pamela Love, Hamish Bowles… and every other New York fashion fixture you can imagine.
Celebrity We’d Most Like to See Wearing this Collection: Solange! But she already was wearing SUNO in her front row seat. We love you, Solange.
WTF Moment: At least 75% of the people in attendance were wearing SUNO. Was there a giveaway I missed?!
