Paris Fashion Week: Vanessa Bruno's Paris bohemians

Brunomain

Isabel Marant and Vanessa Bruno represent the two poles of Parisian chic. If Marant's brand is all sexy swagger, Bruno's is bohemian sweet. Both designers sit in the contemporary price category, meaning their pieces are generally less than $1,000, which has made them all the more appealing to women the world over in search of that je ne sais quoi.

This season, Bruno's collection was full of romantic tunic dresses, peasant blouses and chunky knit sweaters, worn with clog boots and knit hats for a look that was deliciously disheveled. More polished but no less relaxed were high-waist trousers and textured coats, which would play just as well on Melrose, where the designer recently opened a boutique, as in the Marais.
