Take It Easy This Fall With Vanessa Bruno
Slinky dresses and slouchy coats were the order of the day at Vanessa Bruno, whose Fall 2014 collected featured sporty elements like lacing, zips, and decorative seams alongside innovative fabric choices, from textured fish-scale minidresses and skirts, to a chiffon-topped bomber jacket that rippled around the creases.
The outerwear was luxurious, from the gray leopard coats that opened the show to a cream felted wool jacket with fur-trimmed hood that topped a minidress. Short biker and bomber jackets were never in short supply. Underneath were slinky silk dresses in graphic camo-esque print (in khaki or blue) and city shorts, all teamed with studded Birkenstock sandals, oxfords, or pointed slip-on mules. The color palette was muted; pastels, murky greens, black, and navy, and the silhouettes simple and timeless. There'll be no shortage of chic French girls lining up for these laid-back must haves.
