Brandon Sun Spring 2014

I say this twice a year, but when I attend a show during fashion week that features separates and day wear, I'm always a bit relieved. Evening glam is fabulous for a runway, but a girl needs some everyday inspiration, too. Brandon Sun's spring collection was my breath of fresh air this season. The architecture of his clothing, that featured very little fur this season (Sun is known for his fur finesse), successfully showed off his ready-to-wear chops.

I'm a big fan of all the black, white, and gray tones shown during New York Fashion Week, and enjoyed seeing it all grouped together on the Sun platform with bits of bold orange and a more mellow green hue.

Models took turns walking the rectangular platform 
The inspiration for this collection was the Japanese female samurai, but I liked how Sun kept the Asian influence subtle yet strong in silhouette. The lines spoke of clean minimalism while the details were enhanced with a variety of patterns, fabrics, and colors. As one of the newer designer entering the lists of fashion week, Brandon Sun is clearly a talent to watch.
