Vanessa Bruno

The Daughter of a Danish supermodel and the founder of French fashion house Cacharel, it's no surprise that Vanessa Bruno began her design career at age 24. This model turned designer combines all of my favorite fashion elements. Whether it's a white linen blouse with a lace inlay or a pair of butter-soft leather shorts, Vanessa Bruno is the epitome of effortless chic. I think my first Vanessa piece was a blue canvas sequined bag I bought on the Belgian coast almost 9 years ago. After years of waiting, Vanessa opened her first boutique in the US last year in West Hollywood (this location I'm sure was chosen to cater to her ever growing number of celebrity clientele). Fingers crossed for New York and a US online shop next!
