New York: Known for culling prints and textiles from all around the world, particularly Africa, suno designers Erin Beatty and Max Osterweis found inspiration for fall in a less exotic place – grandma’s closet. Inspired by the idea of clothes and keepsakes that “old ladies” collect over time, the duo set out to create timeless looks from an amalgamation of femme blouses, sack dresses, tunics, kimono coats and even aprons – often all layered into one look. Their signature print mixing and the addition of stuffy checked separates from grandpa put a contemporary spin on a collection that should appeal to their quirky clientele as well as more serious types.
