Catching Up With Brandon Sun At Neiman Marcus in Chicago

Brandon Sun At Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue
My buddy Brandon Sun was at Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue recently with his gorgeous fall 214 and spring 2015 collections. I call him “my buddy” because I hung out with him for hours at a Neiman Marcus trunk show a few years ago, where I styled a mannequin with one of his fabulous shearling coats. He is sweet, funny, playful and oh-so-talented! Take a look at the intricacies of his pieces. His black and white pieced leather skirt and top are a Second City Style favorite, and we showed it as an example of a great B&W fall trend.
I asked Brandon for an update on what he’s been up to. He is bridging the gap between his ready-to-wear and his couture pieces. He is known for furs and shearlings and our Michigan Avenue Neiman Marcus always carries a nice selection, but the San Francisco store has his RTW and you can order pieces from there.
His fall collection includes a large use of Swarovski crystals. He said a lot of intense and laborious work goes into producing these pieces. They are totally collectable. One of my favorite pieces is a navy shearling topper with Swarovski crystals. I told Brandon I would wear it with jeans or over a skirt or dress. “Exactly!” he said. “My pieces are designed so a woman can wear them any way she chooses.”
