A nice twist to the classic cabas. Vanessa Bruno honors raffia and its land of origin: Madagascar. The island is the cradle of a high quality raw material and is an expert in a 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. Each bag is labeled with a leather label stating "Handmade in Madagascar".
Vanessa Bruno -- Paris, France
Raised by a Danish mother and a French father, the stylist made
the most of her various and precious origins to build her brand,
a unique Maison, intrinsically tied to the timeless aura and mystery
of the Parisian woman.
Her designs are minimalist yet sophisticated.
The fabric is cut into pure lines aiming at enhancing those modern women's silhouette. Comfort imposes itself through elegance.
Thus, in Vanessa's hands, a cotton canvas, a few sequins and a simple shape were enough to transform an everyday object into a timeless and essential fashion accessory: the iconic Cabas tote.
Since 1996 - when her brand was born and her first store was opened
in Japan - she has been designing clothes for women who are like her: independent, urban, gipsy, boho, sophisticated and elegant.
With her unique style, Vanessa Bruno offers women what they have always been looking for: being able to feel comfortable without any compromise on elegance.
Vanessa 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”
