A little birdie told us that the beloved French fashion designer Vanessa Bruno is set to open up her first L.A. boutique on Melrose Place in a few weeks, which of course we responded to with giddy glee followed by serious sorrow for our soon-to-be emptied bank accounts. In anticipation of this exciting new development, we wanted to give you a little amuse-bouche of what is to come by sharing her amazing fall '10 lookbook for the Athé collection. Think lots of effortless slouchy trousers, essential shearling jackets, cozy cable-knit sweaters, and enough lace-up wedge boots to shake a stick at. In short, the Athé line is the epitome of that Parisian brand of insouciant chic we all envy, so feast your eyes on this lovely lookbook, and come July don't forget to stop by!
Vanessa Bruno, 8448 Melrose Avenue (at North Croft Street); opening soon.
