Stopover in Capri with Vanessa Bruno

Event | June 18th, 2021

This summer, Vanessa Bruno invites you on an exhilarating journey under the sun and the sweetness of southern Italy, in Capri.

Guest of honor at the "Rayons de Soleil" exhibition at Bon Marché Rve Gauche, she unveils an exclusive pop-up in the heart of the store that recreates the unique atmosphere of Capri. Discover an exclusive fashion and lifestyle capsule, a deliciously poetic scenography that highlights iconic models revisited.

Vanessa Bruno invites you for an intimate stroll through the streets of Capri and reveals her hidden addresses and her summer must-haves.

Summer must-haves by Vanessa Bruno

What are your sunny summer essentials?

Absolutely essential: a shirt dress in light blue and white striped cotton voile, to put on over your swimsuit. It is ideal, because if you add a pair of flat sandals and a raffia belt, it immediately becomes very chic. Over a swimsuit, I also like these skirts which take up the idea of a sarong, to be associated with a blouse for a stroll around town. And then there is obviously the large crocheted raffia tote bag, with a touch of sea blue or solar lemon. Finally, a scarf tied in the hair, à la Jackie O ', a retro nod that I particularly like.

Genie dress, 195€

Bulles tote bag in embroidered raffia, 195€

Spaggia pareo, 59€

The must-haves to have in your summer suitcase for a stopover in Capri?

In the evening in Capri, we attend a wonderful ball of women all ready to go out, each prettier than the next. It was with this unique atmosphere in mind that I created this long buttoned dress, V-neckline, in aerial ramie with balloon sleeves. I imagined it entirely embroidered in multicolored tones as if bleached by the sun but also in an immaculate white version, in homage to the symphony of white dresses inseparable from the island. To complete the look, an organic coral red polish by Kure bazaar, an Eres swimsuit, pieces from lem.lem, the brand of Liya Kebede, and a Diptyque citronella candle that completes the atmosphere of Capri.

Ristana lace dress, 495€

KURE BAZAAR, Coquette ecological nail polish, 16 €

ERES, Swimsuit Effigie, 310 €

DIPTYQUE, Citronnella Candle 190g, 52 €

For a summer under the sign of Dolce Vita, Vanessa Bruno reveals her favorite addresses in Capri

What are your favorite addresses to dine like at the "nonna's"?

Restaurant Le Grotelle and its spectacular terrace suspended above the sea.

Restaurant Da Paolino, under a sky of lemon trees.

Torre Saracena a beach for lunch by the sea with a swim as a bonus.

What is your itinerary for strolling through the streets of Capri?

I like to leave early in the morning and move away from the buzzing village to start the long walk that leads to the Villa Jovis. There, we are immersed in the authentic Capri of its inhabitants, surrounded by nature, we come across sublime abandoned villas. Everything is magnificent: the smell of the paths, the bougainvilleas, the jasmines ... Then, I descend by a small path which leads to the Lysis villa and I end at the Arco Naturale, facing the majestic cliffs that fall into the Mediterranean. Heavenly.

Raffia hat, 95€
