Ladies Who Lunch: Brandon Sun Fall 2012!

A graduate of Parsons School of Design, Brandon Sun began his design career at J. Mendel working closely with Gilles Mendel on the ready-to-wear, tailoring and fur collections.  After 5 years, he joined Oscar de la Renta  as the Design Director of the fur division.

In 2011, Brandon Sun launched his signature collection which was picked up by retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.  His collection has continued to grow from a line of luxury fur accessories to a complete line of clothing for a sophisticated and confident clientele.

For Fall 2012, Brandon Sun took his inspiration from the heroines in the Chinese epic Kung Fu movies he grew up with and titled it “Silent Assassins”!  Sun tried to capture the elegance and violence that are juxtaposed in the films.

Using a color palette of blacks, ivories, greys and dusk rose, Brandon Sun layered furs over chiffon skirts and gabardine pants.  The contrasting of soft fabrics with leathers, wools and armour-like accessories created an image of femininity and strength!
