Matching is SO overrated. At least that’s the case with Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty, the founders of New York label Suno. Since its inception back in 2008, the brand has won a well-deserved cult following for its mishmash of fabrics, colors, and exotic patterns, all of which are sourced everywhere from Kenya to Peru to its home base in Manhattan. It’s easy to swoon over the eye-popping goods at Fashion Week and on stars like Solange, but it’s decidedly tougher to work up the spare change to snag a Suno original for our own personal wardrobes. Until now, that is, because Max and Erin are the latest additions to Uniqlo’s Designer Invitation Project and are officially joining forces with the mega-retailer on a capsule of pattern-perfect designs. Filled with floral motifs and stripes that take cues from “Japanese Americana” (as well as their own runway pieces, as evidenced above), the collection is a total prints PARTY, and everyone’s closet is invited. So who’s in!?

Priced between $19.90 and $39.90, each of the items is definitely more affordable than the goods prancing down the catwalk, and this wallet-friendly quality also means we don’t necessarily have to play favorites. Between the sleeveless blouse, the bright blue maxi, and the prim collared shirtdress, this colorful collection just might be the breath of fresh air our spring uniform’s been waiting for. And the best part is, the mix-matching possibilities here are ENDLESS. Suno is all about pushing the boundaries, after all, so go ahead and rock the floral-and-striped shirt with polka dot pants if you want to! Or you know, don’t. It’s up to you. Regardless how you plan to style ’em, better start plotting your picks, because the collection hits Uniqlo stores and online starting May 20.
