Vanessa Bruno Spring 2013 RTW

Launch Slideshow

SHOW: Vanessa Bruno, Spring 2013

THEME: Street urbanite meets romantic vacay

ACCESSORIES: Strappy gladiator sandals

OVERALL TAKEAWAY: Vanessa Bruno added an urban street wear element to her collection this season, and what materialized were garments with a hard edge. That, and romantic garments under the same umbrella made Bruno's collection a bit confusing at time.

But while the consistency wasn't there, the practical and wearable elements of the collection were ever so present. That said, there was a jumpsuit that looked so complicated from the runway, we can't even imagine what it would be like to put on (though given the opportunity, we totally would). 

The romanticism of some looks prompted fantasies of vacations with pieces that moved easily and weren't overdone. What was most interesting, though, where the cuts of jackets. They were awkward but purposeful, which just goes to show that Bruno isn't afraid to take a staple and make it unusual and still totally wearable.
