In only eight seasons, SUNO has become the place to be on NYFW's first Friday. Everyone packed into Milk's tiny show space from the Courtin-Clarins girls to the Russian street style starlets to Jenna Lyons to, well, everyone. The scene inside was extra jammed because the center row of seats that usually divides the runway was taken out to make room for the prop tee-pee and scattered white rocks that set the stage for the more baroque, nature-inspired fall 2013 collection.
Things started off in black, a color not usually seen on SUNO's runway, with striped loose trousers, a smart quilted jacket, and a truly cozy looking floral trim sweater. The floral trim was a motif of the collection, appearing on striped shirts and shirt dresses.
Things on the whole were shinier than seasons past--from a gold brocade look to some Swarovski embellished pieces at the end that added a new level of sophistication to SUNO's cool girl modus operandi.
The flat ankle boots by Nicholas Kirkwood for SUNO evoked East-London, and gave the collection a streetwear slant, as did the center-parted low ponies that editors tend to favor during fashion week.
