The Secret to Mixing Prints

New York-based label Suno has been one of the biggest rising stars on the American design scene primarily for its inventive take on prints -- from Kenyan-inspired textiles to elaborate beading. The label drew an impressive crowd for the unveiling of its Fall 2011 collection over the weekend that even included Anna Wintour, so it's safe to say that the designers behind the brand -- Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty -- are relative experts on making prints work in any wardrobe.

Here, Beatty describes how print-mixing "isn't rocket science," but can have its challenges. Her tips on getting it right include keeping all the colors in one tonal family, as well as thinking of textured fabrics as prints in their own right.
