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.
