Bland & Boring LØV, Kate Bosworth for Vanessa Bruno
Vanessa Bruno clothings have always been pretty bland and boring - Parisian style clothes that match much of England's perennial dull and gray skies or Paris's dusty grey streets in winter.
This fall, Vanessa Bruno has enlisted the help of Stephanie di Giusto to direct a short film featuring the beautiful Hollywood star Kate Bosworth titled LØV for her fall winter 2011 collection.
No doubt Kate Bosworth has her looks rooted in Scandinavian heritage with her piercing blue eyes and blonde hair, however, this did no help to make the Vanessa Bruno fall-winter collection stand out in any shape or form. I was more drawn to the short little puzzling story which ended in a standard love scene..
Heart-warming and lovely the Norwegian landscape may be, the clothes resembled oversized coats with boring granny knits and patterns with unflattering fur collared trimmings in bear brown and beige colours. The only pattern observed in the collection was thick, broad stripes in earthy shades of browns and beige that made even the skinniest runway models look boxy and fat.
Would you like to look like a boxy striped bin for Christmas?
