Out of everything Bruno put on the runway, you could picture her new Hollywood pals appreciating the easy drape of a tropical-print silk dress, with its substantial helping of upper thigh. Either that, or a bold floral all-in-one straight out of the Beverly Hills Hotel circa the fifties. What they'd take a pass on: fluoro plaid knit bikinis and a white mesh maillot.
In its little-bit-of-this, little-bit-of-that attitude, Spring lacked the strong focus of Bruno's Fall collection, with its terrific outerwear. But she gets a pass this once for being an independent designer with a growing international business.
