Tranoï New York 2016 Fashion Brands

TRANOÏ has informed us that they are thrilled to welcome the following brands to The Tunnel for the first time at Tranoï New York during NYC market week.

Brandon Sun

Brandon Sun
New York-based luxury fur outwear and ready-to-wear label, Brandon Sun will debut at Tranoï New York with a collection that amplifies the signature cool girl aesthetic in a display of slick hardware, punk inspired studding, and insouciant furs. Entitled “Mnemosyne”, the collection finds inspiration amongst the post-punk influenced subcultures of London during the 1970s. Iconic rock bands, such as Siouxsie and the Banshees, and their motivation are resoundingly parallel to our own disaffected youth. 

“Mnemosyne” rebels against normalcy – it is the insistence of individuality and independence. Brandon Sun captures this through a collage of mink – shredded, printed, and deconstructed; luxurious navy dyed Russian sable; ultra cozy merino shearling and silky lamb fur. The uniquely singular approach to fur by Brandon Sun is the translation of intellectually avant-garde concepts into tangible pieces for real life.


Byronesque, the leading authority in contemporary- vintage fashion and subculture has teamed up with Life in Perfect Disorder to create a limited edition collection of premium vintage T-shirts featuring a dream team of designers. This collection is an anti-fast fashion homage to vintage designers from 20 years ago or more who changed the course of fashion for the better; from the likes of the Antwerp Six, Yamamoto, Westwood to Montana or Kawakubo to name a few. The hard-to-find t-shirts have been carefully sourced by one of Byronesque’s vintage specialist partners, Patrick Matamoros of Chapel NYC. The designs capture the iconic history of each designer in more detail. A portion of sales will be donated towards a fashion student’s graduate show to encourage the next generation of designers to be as imaginative as our fashion heroes. Attendees won’t be able to miss this presentation right at the entrance of Tranoï New York and will even have the chance to get captured in the designer T-shirt of their choice.

Katie Gallagher

Katie Gallagher
Katie Gallagher is celebrated for her attention to detail, superior craftsmanship, and creativity. This Fall/Winter 2016 she debuts at Tranoï New York with her second all-black collection entitled “Veiled”, in which she combines bold leather jackets and military inspired trousers with delicate lace, cashmere, rompers and long slitted silk skirts. Gallagher is inspired by black, the hue that has no hue. Secretive, unknown, mysterious. Black, the darkest color yet the color with no color at all, represents both full absorption and complete absence of light, evil and elegance, beginning and end, a completed cycle.

Gallagher’s monochromatic collection relies heavily on textures and subtle details, featuring elements of gothic architecture, stained glass, and Harry Clarke illustrations. Recalling her initial and first all black collection of Spring Summer 2010, Gallagher’s latest collection includes reworked pieces from SS 2010, completing her line’s cycle. Stained glass-inspired lace textures and hairpieces recall cathedral elements, graveyards, and old Catholic rituals. Gallagher pairs twisted seams and twill tape with velvet ribbons and zippers, defining her Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
