New in! SUNO sneakers – available June 15th.

SUNO NY sneakers SS12

We are excited about the new limited-edition sneaks’ from SunoNY 

These canvas shoes are very affordable priced at just USD $65 and come in two styles — lace-ups and slip-ons — printed in Suno’s signature patterns.

SUNO is a New York based womenswear label founded in 2008 by Max Osterweis in collaboration with designer Erin Beatty. The collection was launched in Spring 2009 after post-election violence threatened to damage the economy and industry in Kenya and for a long time they have been known to use vintage Kenyan textiles that Osterweis had been collecting for years. They created their first small collection, produced predominantly in Kenya. SUNO has evolved its business to include production in Kenya, India, Peru and its home base of New York.
