SUUS is the brand of young designer Hana Frišonsová, who studied Textile and Fashion Design before she established her brand. "I am not sure how I fit into the fashion design box. I was always more interested in the technology of clothes production, in new materials," says Hana. Her new collection called "Mysteries" was inspired by Stanislav Lem's Solaris. "I wasn't pursuing the futurististic aspect of the book, but rather its symbolic and dream-like atmosphere. The materials are raw -- leather, knits, unwowen textile, and wood in black, gray, and dusty pink," says Hana.
Comrade says: Inspired by sci-fi yet made of materials typical for the past, SUUS's new collection is undoubtedly influenced by cutting-edge designers such as Rick Owens rather than mainstream fashion. We admire the austerity and minimalistic approach as well as the quality of materials. Long live SUUS!
