The Clothes: Trends might come and go, but Vanessa Bruno remains loyal to her taste for bohemia and the Marais. Sure, there was a slight adaptation to fashion’s current passion for the '90s, with bright red tapered leather pants and matching blazers. Yet the collection rapidly proposed yet another twist on her enduring loves: paisley prints came oversized and embroided on rolled up denim, baggy silk blouses were worn with structured frock coats, and light cotton dresses were paired with Nehru collars on cropped jackets.
The nightwear had a definite Woodstock feel to it, with lacey cutouts on floor-length, cream-frilly numbers. Slouchy cream tube purses carried by the hand also made an appearance--a potential mid-luxury it-bag if you ask me.
The collection might not be to everyone’s taste, but if Vanessa Bruno can find common traits between Lou Doillon and Kate Bosworth (her two muses), there is surely a little bit of French hippy inside of you, too.
The Hair & Makeup: Rosy/brown-ish eyeshadow. Hair was down and parted in the middle--hippy perfection.
The Vibe: Woodstock pronounced with a French accent.
The Front Row: The whole of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Marais, as well as Bruno’s hot hubby gallerist Frank Elbaz.
