A nice twist to the classic cabas. Vanessa Bruno honors raffia and its land of origin: Madagascar. The island is the cradle of high-quality raw material and is an expert in unique weaving know-how that is perpetuated and developed from generation to generation. Entirely handmade, Vanessa Bruno raffia bags require five to twenty-two days of work for the most complex models. This production allows Malagasy women to have access to a profession and a stable source of income.
Designer Vanessa Bruno, Paris, France:
Born in Denmark, and raised in Paris, the model-turned-designer launched her brand in 1996, unveiling the international best-seller and now iconic Cabas only two years later. Romantic aesthetics and bohemian chic style, characterized by soft tones and light, loose cuts are prevalent in her collections. Bruno’s clothes transcend trends, with timeless style and sophisticated detail, championed by the world’s fashion elite. Times fashion editor Lisa Armstrong referred to Vanessa Bruno as the designer label “fashion editors actually wear”.
