Tie Waist Dress

US $495.00

There’s so much to love about this hyper feminine silk dress: We love the subtle prints, drawstring waist silhouette, and fluid, embroidery-trimmed hem that’s a little bit longer in the back.

About the Brand

Suno is named for owner and designer Max Osterweis’ mother, in part because it was visits to her home in Lamu (an island on Kenya’s Swahili coast) that first created the impetus for the line. There, Osterweis, who had been in the film industry before launching Suno, was inspired by Kenyan cloths called kangas, which women wore as skirts and tops or wrapped around their backs as baby slings. Osterweis and his partner, Erin Beatty, still make much of their collection from kanga-like fabrics in Kenya, though they’ve since expanded to other countries, seeking out elements of the local aesthetic to incorporate into their designs in each place.
