It's also quite popular in Paris and France, and since I am a huge fan of the Parisian style, that makes it even more appealing to me. The brand also has quite an interesting history, founded in 1996 by Vanessa Bruno, who was only 24 years old at the time. However, she was alreadt quite familiar with all aspects of fashion by then, being the daughter of a Danish supermodel as well as the founder of the French fashion brand Emmanuelle Khan.
I personally am yet to buy a Vanessa Bruno piece that fell apart, so all the Vanessa Bruno pieces I have, have been great investments for me.
Here is a pic of Vanessa Bruno herself, for those of you who are curious:
