French designer Vanessa Bruno launched her eponymous in 1996 at the age of 24. Her sophisticated, elegant clothes are the epitome of the luxe, carefree Parisian style. Bruno’s muse Lou Doillon completely embodies the spirit of the brand; the French model, singer and actress epitomizes the eclectic aesthetic. There is definitely a youthful spirit to her versatile designs: leather skirts, slouchy grey jumpers and chunky ankle boots all hang beside more feminine options like silk georgette floral dresses. Bruno perfectly blends softer pieces with tougher, more androgynous designs creating a quirky, energetic look.
Vanessa Bruno has since developed her brand, creating diffusion line Vanessa Bruno Athé, which focuses on essential basic items. In 2010 Bruno also opened two new stores in London and Los Angeles, securing her place in the international fashion market.▼
