The Winter Olympics may have just begun, but let’s talk about the only event that matters right now: Fashion Month. Already my social media feeds have been taken over by all of the NYFW-related #FASHUN. I am beyond excited to see all the offerings from all the greats as well as finding new labels to love and I am also cheering for all our incredible Aussie exports who are showcasing overseas this year, with the likes of Dion Lee and Zimmermann in NYC and Christopher Esber representing this sunburnt country of ours at the Annual Woolmark Prize in Milan (good luck, Chris!).

As the first cab off the ranks, I’ve chosen to review Brandon Sun’s Fall 2014 collection. This is the first time I have heard of or seen any of his work and I am incredibly impressed. With a quick background check I’ve discovered New York-based Brandon previously interned at Calvin Klein and worked at J. Mendel and Oscar De La Renta prior to starting his own label. This is only his third year of showing a collection at NYFW and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more from him in the future.

Brandon has mastered the art of mixing his textures and fabrics, something that so often comes across as too heavy and disjointed, and has worked to create the perfect collection for the modern urban dweller. The wholly monochromatic colour palette was broken up by metallics and beautiful sheer details.

While I can’t complain about the amazing warm weather we’ve been having in Sydney lately, I wouldn’t mind rugging up in some of Brandon’s wares in the cooler months!

Take a peek at my favourite looks from the collection...
