If you're looking for a well-priced take on the season's lacy little tops and lingerie-themed looks, Vanessa Bruno
just might be your girl. She's always had a knack for sussing out the trends in an approachable way. If the styling seemed a bit much on the runway—lace knee pads, anyone?—the collection will be broken down at her boutiques and at department stores into risk-free wardrobe updates. The pieces most likely to make the transition from catwalk to selling floor included the perfect little boleros and bed jackets with the season's bold shoulder, which could be worn over just about anything. Slouchy silk jumpsuits with drawstring waists and white Victoriana shirts with what looked like hand-tatted lace should also do well in stores. Some pieces had too much of a bottom-of-the-vintage-bin feel, and others were weighed down with bulky bits of yarn and appliqués, but otherwise this looked like a savvy distillation of one direction fashion's going for Spring.
