The Show: Brandon Sun
The Theme: Dark, layered and defined
The Color Palette: Back, dark green, grey, and navy.
the inspiration behind the choosing these hues was based off the mystical interiors by Axel Vervoodt, as well as from Wabi Sabi influences of simplicity and humility.
The Signature, Standout Look: Brandon Sun for fall 2013 was truly a ready-to-wear collection that could have stepped off of the presentation platform and into the New York City streets, something that Bill Cunningham would have absolutely loved to immediately photograph. Deep V’s, high slits, and intricate back detailing were most present but most noted was the layering of different fabrics and textures, while still keeping with the contours of a women’s shape. The combining of fabrics, like sheer mesh with fur or silks with knits, all of the same color scheme gave these looks a bold monochromatic feel. The slouchy yet defined collection can be transformed from fall to winter easily, whether it be adding or shedding a layer, you will be city slick in any one of these pieces.
The Show: Josie Natori
The Theme: Chinoserie Inspired by 1930s Opulence
The Signature, Standout Look: A nostalgic feeling took over the Josie Natori Fall 2013 presentation as models posed in front of an abstract floral folding wall with retro yet glam hair and makeup. Although the color palette drastically varied, it was the intricate embellishments and embroidered dragon patterns that gave these garments a subtle richness that was the standout, and signature of the Natori brand that made each piece a collectible.

Fresh for fall 2012, Josie Natori presented an oriental-nuanced collection, updated to fit the modern woman. Many pieces were cinched at the waist with an obi-like belt, alluding to the kimono. Elegant drapery, fitted trousers and reversible wraps were paired with Japanese bell sleeves, leather and fur, while edgy black and white printed silhouettes were kept simple and loose. The color scheme, though multifaceted, served the collection well, resulting in a surprisingly coherent palette of dark purple, green, tan, red, orange, grey and white – all accented by black, of course. Natori’s Asian influence rings crystal clear, one cannot help but think of the “Mongolian nomads, Kublai Khan, Marco Polo, and the traders on the Silk Road” which inspired her. The grande finale was a graceful black floor-length dress with a sheer back adorned with a romantic design of flowers.
