September 28, 2012 Paris
Actually, Bruno's sundresses and her (admittedly tricky to wear) jumpsuit would look just fine on the mean streets of Paris or New York. As usual, the designer applied just enough urbanity to this collection to make gauzy vibes viable. That was nowhere truer than in her tailoring—this season's cropped trousers and little jackets with a kick at the back will go down a storm at retail. And her bias-cut silk skirts had a low-slung, lazy cool. The seersucker stripe, frond print, and broderie anglaise threatened to tip Bruno out of her sweet spot and into saccharine-ville—a bad neighborhood. But in general she kept things sharp.
