Rafael Cennamo, Brandon Sun: Glamorous and Edgy for Fall 2012 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen   
rafael cennamo fall winter 2012 collection 13.jpgDesigner Rafael Cennamo and Designer Brandon Sun wowed audiences with their glamorous yet edgy Fall 2012 Women's Collections as seen by Luxury Experience during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

 

For Fall 2012, Designer Rafael Cennamo created an enticing collection of eveningwear utilizing a color palate of neutrals: black, grey, steel grey, gunmetal, midnight blue, winter white, white gold, ivory, moonlight, and brown, interspersed with colors of rose gold, red, teal, and sapphire.

Structured, asymmetrical, strapless, off-shoulder, and one-shouldered looks set the platform for Fall 2012 where he incorporates silk, tulle, silk chiffon, crepe, silk Swiss burlap, beading, embellishments, and embroidery to add visual appeal to his 24-look collection.

There were many collection highlights including his very glamorous Black Crepe Draped Back Dress with Silver Fox Shawl, and a sophisticated and sexy Sapphire Blue Backless Draped Sleeve Gown, which featured a demure front and a surprising deep-vee plunging back. His brown Silk Swiss Burlap Beaded Gown was another highlight of the show.

Two "show-stoppers" though were his Red Layered Bias Cut Gown, a slinky little number in vibrant "look at me" lipstick red color with narrow layers of raw edged silk, deep vee-back, and pooling train; and his Winter White Silk Draped Back Gown for the bride who wants to make a memorable entrance.

Speaking with Rafael Cennamo after the show, we learned that this was his second season presenting at the prestigious Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, and that this talented Venezuelan/Italian born designer now calls New York his home.

Parsons School of Design in New York graduate Designer Brandon Sun took his inspiration from "sword wielding heroines" incorporating, "a tale of peaceful ferocity" - "Silent Assassins" for his luxury fur accessories and clothing for women "who are today's initiators, leaders, and innovators. These are ageless clothes that quietly define strength and pragmatism, versatility, fearlessness; freedom." The Autumn/Winter Collection of 16 looks features a color palette of anthracite, black, varying shades of grey, ivory, and dusk-rose.
