I am not a fan of sequins. Not at all. But I do have a crush on really thick linen and I need light bags. A beautiful but heavy handbag is no option when you travel a lot since all technical equipment goes already in there. I knew Vanessa Bruno’s bags for quite a while but never thought of buying any (too shiny!). But when spotting this one, I kind of fell in love with the color and material and thought about taking off the blue/greyish sequins once home and substitute them by leather straps. But as you can see I have been too lazy so far and here we are. It has been one of the best bag buys ever! Super practical, goes with everything, not delicate, very light! I might give it a new look in Fall.
So, that’s the bag and this is Vanessa Bruno’s home in Paris. You might have seen the sofa picture already on Pinterest a while ago but I thought the other pictures of this series would be equally nice. They are photographed by Birgitta Wolfgang Drejer specialized within interior and lifestyle photographing and who has published four books so far. The mood and captured light might mislead to the perception that this apartment is located in any Scandinavian country but the thing is Vanessa Bruno is Italian and lives in Paris. For more pictures of her place, please have a look here.
