In 2011, Brandon Sun launched his signature collection which was picked up by retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.Â 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 â€œSilent Assassinsâ€!Â 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.Â The contrasting of soft fabrics with leathers, wools and armour-like accessories created an image of femininity and strength!
