Wants: Vanessa Bruno Crêpe de Chine
16/01/2012 § Leave a comment
Smartly tailored, but luxuriously draped, Vanessa Bruno has such a way with crêpe de Chine that I almost want to forbid anyone else from using the textile. Rather impressive when you consider that Bruno started her collection in 1996 at the tender age of 24. This romper and shirtdress are perfect examples of her virtuosity, and have me fantasizing about warm summer days when all you can bear to have on your body is the softest whisper of silk. With any luck, I’ll be in one of these pieces.
We really have to pause and ruminate on how good this striped shirtdress is. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’ve got a bit of a shirtdress addiction, and this really hits the mark. The boatneck, the placket, the tabbed sleeves, the drawstring waist and the pattern is simply gorgeous. Mariah is a lady who can never have too many stripes in her life. Stripes and shirtdresses, shirtdresses and stripes. Best of both worlds, really.
