PARIS–Vanessa Bruno’s girl for spring is a bit boho, a bit mod, a bit DIY, and always cool. Mod minis looked like they were made of hipster quilts–nostalgic floral prints I had as my bedspread when I was five sewn together with squares of shimmering silver. Bruno amped up the mod-factor with open-toe knee-high boots. Shagadellic. Images of trucks then wove their way onto patchwork tops and dresses for a literal boy-meets-girl vibe.
There were solid basics, too–slim pants in chartreuse, one of the colors of the season, and sleek white leather jackets and matching pants–but it was those patchwork minis and T-shirt dresses that charmed me. I found the fringed wool ponchos less charming (maybe the heat had something to do with it) but someone with a truer hippie streak than me won’t be disappointed.
