Designer Crush: Suno

I found this Suno dress on sale at Saks Fifth Avenue in the spring. I dug its retro vibe and graphic prints are part of my style DNA (see here, here and here). My love affair with Suno began with this dress, still one of my favorite pieces (the texture is divine and the cocoon-like silhouette, without being pencil and huggy,  is both flattering and functional). I love the brand’s artisanal feel, distinctive prints and quirky shapes. Suno is smart, sophisticated, grown up. There’s that bit wrong quality that’s key for me. And bonus: the brand, for those of you who aren’t as familiar with Suno, is ethically-minded, working to ensure their luxury pieces are made under the safest and fairest conditions. I have linked to the exact dress I am wearing here, plus a number of other Suno pieces that have my eye. I am also positively in love with Suno’s brocade boot for fall. It shot right to the top of my shopping list the second I saw it. Right now, I’m only seeing it on the Suno website. This is the brand’s first shoe collection and I expect this particular boot to sell out fast.

The Chanel shoes I’m wearing were procured on sale one fortuitous spring a few years back. I was in the store when a lady came in to return them. A quick hand off took place and I had my first place of Chanel shoes. Right place, right time. I love the new sling that came out last year.

I found the Alexander McQueen clutch on sale at Luisaviaroma.com, one of my favorite sites. It was significantly reduced PLUS an extra 10 percent off. It’s definitely one of those Hall of Fame purchases and goes with absolutely everything.

This shoot wrapped at Expat, a fun pop-up (when the weather is nice) restaurant in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. It’s nothing more than a few tables outside RM Champagne Lounge. Locals love it for the boozy sno-cones and just-right bites for said cocktails.
