When crazy-talented Suno designer Max Osterweis decided to put his screenwriting skills aside for a stab at fashion design in 2008, we went crazy for the Kenyan textiles and ethnic-bold prints. The San Francisco-to-NYC transplant has managed to knock us off our feet once again—this time pairing up for a killer resort '11 collection with fellow local designer Erin Beatty.
