Backstage at Vanessa Bruno Fall Winter 2013

Friday March 1st, 2013 – Grand Palais

There was a certain confidence in the model’s step at Vanessa Bruno’s Fall showing,  and with good reason. With her eponymous line growing exponentially in the past few years, Vanessa Bruno has set her sights on the American market, first with a pop-up store bowing during NY fashion week and, later this year, her first U.S. boutique opening in the Big Apple. You get the sense that VB was all about getting down to business, with opening looks featuring masculine suiting that were reworked into flirtatiously youthful pieces.

Pinstripe suit jackets and trousers paired with white-collared color-blocked shirts introduced the collection. Knife pleats on billowy skirts, blouses, and dresses were sharp and sexy while the use of grommets along the hems of mini-skirts will get no complaints from boyfriends and husbands. Cleavage baring V-necklines on a few looks offered a little flesh-baring for all, looking best on a shiny black number with a layered, A-line skirt construction.

For outerwear, white-quilted shoulder, pocket and hem trims on grey granite, asymmetrical coats and jackets answer the need for something fresh for fall. There was a variety of beautifully textured patterns used in tunics, skirts and shift dresses, some sporting vertical rhinestone arrangements while others taking a mosaic approach. Dark silver sequins were worked into white shift dresses in a kaleidoscopic fashion to great effect.

A harbinger of great things to come this autumn, Bruno’s immense joy could hardly be contained by this collection much to the delight of many waiting shoppers.
