Vanessa Bruno: handbags for contemporary women.
Vanessa Bruno is the perfect definition of French chic. With its collections of women's clothing, accessories and handbags, unpretentious but always with elegant, clean lines and of the moment, the French fashion house targets women who are independent city-lovers but who also have a romantic dreamier side.
Between Danish minimalism and Parisian glamour.
Vanessa Bruno, the daughter of a Danish top model and a French entrepreneur, began her career as a model in Canada before turning her hand to designing. In 1996, the young woman decided to launch her eponymous brand in Paris and opened her first boutique in 1998, offering fellow women collections of clothing inspired by her origins, resulting in a blend of Scandinavian influences and French chic. Very quickly spotted by the big names, amongst the designs to which she owes her reputation is her iconic sequined tote bag, one of which is sold somewhere in the world every 30 minutes.
Far from the style of lavish show typical of most fashion designers, Vanessa Bruno fashion parades are just like collections by the Parisian House : discreet, elegant and simple. The young ladies who walk the catwalk resemble typical Parisians, ordinary women you could see every day on the street, and that, anecdotally, is where the designer recruits her models, thanks to chance encounters. Amongst the die-hard fans of the contemporary pieces, we can name Charlotte Gainsbourg, Vanessa Paradis and Lou Doillon, who was also the brand's muse in 2010.
Handbags designed for day-to-day.
Handbags have made a big contribution to the reputation of the House, proving to be the perfect daily companions of numerous fashionistas, who love their elegance and practical nature. Whether worn over the shoulder or carried by the handles, whether a saddlebag, satchel or cross-body version, all the bags have one thing in common: timeless style, with sophisticated detailing and unorthodox colours. From classic cotton to softer, cosier fur, and handbags in leather, plastic and even straw, these It-bags come in an infinite number of versions in a multitude of different colours, from understated and discreet to bright and flashy.
Numerous designs of women's handbags have helped make the House of Vanessa Bruno popular, adapting perfectly to your outfits for day-to-day and having the edge of being true fashion accessories. The following are amongst the most emblematic:
