Get ready to give Vanessa Bruno a big New York welcome. On February 7, the Paris-based designer will open a pop-up in Soho—a venture that, she says, could be a prelude to a permanent New York store. “Of course we have plans, but I don’t want to rush. And I want to find the right place. I love so many different areas in New York that it’s hard for me to choose,” says the designer of a potential New York outpost. (In addition to ten boutiques in France, Bruno already has stand-alone stores in L.A., London, Spain, Japan, and Australia.)
Bruno, who’s been making regular trips to New York since childhood, loves Manhattan’s melting pot of personalities and styles. She hopes to express this in her store—with a Parisian twist, of course. Stationed in a loft at 131 Greene Street, the two-floor pop-up will feature Bruno’s Spring ’13 collection as well as items from some of the designer’s favorite French shops, like Diptyque (“I love their packaging and I wear their perfume”) and Ladurée (“It’s beautiful, high quality, and their macarons are the typical Parisian sweet”). French film company MK2 will also contribute a special project, and books from Bernard Chauveau will be on offer.
According to Bruno, “nomad” is the concept behind the store, so nothing will be permanent—that includes the walls. Apparently, they’ll all be mobile and printed with Bruno’s ethereal Spring ’13 images of Stella Tennant (above), which were shot by Mark Borthwick. While the boutique certainly has a French focus (“I just wanted to bring the Parisian spirit to New York for a month!” says Bruno) the designer has created one particularly patriotic item: a limited-edition, American flag-embellished version of her signature sequined tote. She’s only made 50—one for each state.
Vanessa Bruno’s pop-up will be located at 131 Greene Street and runs from February 7 through February 26.

Harper’s Bazaar Russia’s Fashion Editor, Maria Kolosova, has a magic touch—or at least a quick way with sleight of hand. Snapped in Paris by street-style photographer Vanessa Jackman, Kolosova looked front-row ready in what looks like a skirt and sweater—and that’s actually a brocade Sportmax dress. Leave the illusions to the pros; copy her get-up with equally chic separates. We’ve gathered pieces from Vanessa Bruno, Karl Lagerfeld, T by Alexander Wang and more, that are sure to do the trick.

For the last short film she shot for designer Vanessa Bruno, Kate Bosworth bent over backwards—literally. She scaled 40-foot fir trees, rode horses, and did backflips, all in the name of Lov (that’s the short’s title, naturally). For their latest collaboration, Moonlight, directed by Stéphanie Di Giusto (who also did Lov), Bruno keeps the moment going, walking on ceilings, riding motorcycles through the desert, and living in an illusory house. One can only imagine what she’ll be doing for the next one. Moonlight debuts below.
