Surely you've heard that French cult-fashion designer Vanessa Bruno has just opened a brand-spanking-new boutique on Melrose Avenue and trust us when we say that the sleek new shop is as gorgeous as the immaculate clothing on display. But now that the fall collection has just arrived—along with her amazing new handbag line—there's really no excuse not to hit up the VB store and blow your September paycheck. We've been obsessed with her yummy knitwear that's great for layering on a chilly SoCal autumn evening, and her leather camel trench coat is the perfect riff on the season's must-have outerwear. And we would be remiss if we didn't swoon a little over the delicious new handbags; The luxurious leather, suede, and canvas pieces are super-stylish in a very under-the-radar kind of way—it's the perfect anti-statement fall investment piece. In short, we are totally in love with Vanessa's fall offerings and promise you will be, too.
Want to step up your handbag game for the new season? Just tell us in the comments of this story who your French fashion icon is, and we'll hook up the most inspired answer with a Vanessa Bruno Cabas Tote Bag.
