The S.Nine by Susanna Soo line mixes New York style with French couture details

S.Nine by Susanna Soo

With a pedigree as impressive as Susanna Soo’s, it’s no surprise her designs have a legion of fans. The Parsons School of Design graduate has worked for Diane von Furstenberg in New York, a period in which she won the 2008 Arts of Fashion Award at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) for a sketch of her own collection. She has also apprenticed for French couturier Anne Valerie Hash in Paris. She then took those experiences as inspiration for her S.Nine by Susanna Soo line, which mixes New York style with French couture details. Designed for the modern woman, the line’s signature draping techniques give each garment a sense of style and function. Her distinctive dresses, tops, and skirts are perfect for special occasion dressing.

NUAN cashmere is a good choice for luxe dressing


Cashmere has to be one of the most luxe fabrics you can find, meaning cashmere is a surefire way to ensure you look effortlessly elegant. If you are looking for a piece to increase your festive fashion repertoire, consider NUAN. NUAN is the label of Irish-born designer Caoimhe Ryan, and it offers unique, 100 percent pure cashmere products, including undyed and unbleached “eco cashmere” yarn (cashmere in its raw colour). NUAN’s signature Coco Collection has designs that marry intrecciato, or basket-woven knit, with accent fringing. Caoimhe says she believes in the notions of “slow fashion” and “investment dressing”: in short, purchasing less clothing, but choosing high-quality items made with great care that can be worn for years.
