Vanessa Bruno grew up immersed in the world of fashion. A 1960′s Danish supermodel whose parents were the founders of Emmanuel Khan. She started her line at the age of 24. Worn by superstars like Nicole Kidman and others who adore her sophisticated tailoring with playful and confident styling. Her motto is “easy clothes for difficult girls”. This attention to detail and playfulness evident in her Tresse bag.

Vanessa Bruno Large Pocket Bag
Vanessa Bruno is a name that is seldom mentioned over at TBF. Although she is relatively new to the world of handbags (her first boutique was opened in Paris back in 1991), I am rather surprised that her name doesn’t pop up more often. Personally, I find many of her designs to be quite lovely. But, as with any designer, there are also ones out there that fall just a little bit short. One such bag is the Vanessa Bruno Large Pocket Bag. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the shape of this bag. It is structured, yet soft. I like the magnetic flap closure and I like how it tucks neatly behind the pocket located on the front side of the bag. I even like the cute little buckles. What I don’t like so much is the textured leather this bag is made of. I love soft leather, but I prefer leather that has a smooth appearance. This leather, however, gives the impression of elephant skin. Now who would want a handbag that looks like an elephant? I can safely say I wouldn’t. If only it were made of a smooth grain leather. Then it would rank with the other, more lovely, Vanessa Bruno handbags out there.
The Vanessa Bruno Large Pocket Bag measures 17″ x 13″ x 4.5″ and has a 9″ strap drop. It is available in Noir (black) and Persian (red).
Find it at shopbop.com, where it retails for $1,055.

Vanessa Bruno Athe Slouchy Tote
How many times have you searched for a well-made tote that’s spacious as well as universal for everyday use, plus retails for under $500. And not designed by Dooney or Coach. Not like I have anything against those brands, but on most occasions when I get a “help me find�? type of email the person on the other end says, please no Dooney or Coach. Can you blame them? Everybody and their mom, grandma, sister, aunt, maybe an uncle and even pet own a coach type authentic bag or (unsightly) replica.
Anyway, if on the hunt for a non-signature everyday tote, look no more, check out this Vanessa Bruno Athe Slouchy Tote, it’s going for a mere $334. Such a great find.
The slouchy-style body is dressed in black leather (only avail in black at this time) and features double arm straps that is just the right length to carry on your arm or over the shoulder (drop 8.5�?). Other decorative features include the canvas panel detailing, buckle details on the corners, studs at the top, press stud fastenings, and a small zipped pouch pocket on the inside. The bag measures in at 13″ width x 13″ height x 8″ depth. So it’s the perfect size to carry really anything – laptop, files, wallet, etc. Again, only $334!
I love this tote, actually I’ve fallin’ head-over-heels for this whole outfit. The skinny jeans, sexy Vanessa Bruno Athe top, Christian Louboutin pumps and the Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace. All which can be found at net-a-porter.
