New talents – Eleonora Bruno Spring Summer 2013 “Jungle” collection

On May 3rd, spring has arrived in Florence.

No, there is no reference to the climate, but only to the creative ferment that has blossomed at Le Printemps – A Spring Liturgy, the event in which the FAST students (School of Fashion Accessory Studies and Technology) presented a sort of debate/meeting between their collections with those of three guest designers: Mazzanti piume, Florentine company specialized in producing handmade fashion creations with feathers since 1935; Jewelry Green, the jewelery brand of Clelia Stincheddu and Giulietta Piccioli; and Eleonora Bruno, a talented emerging hat designer.

 

 

The event has been a pleasant occasion to meet Eleonora Bruno, visionary Florentine milliner born in 1987, who launched her independent project Ely B. by Eleonora Bruno in 2009, getting in a few years quite a success being selected for the Vogue Talents exhibition in Milan (September 2012) and among the eight finalists of the H&M Design Award 2013.
Finally I can talk to her at the end of the event, when she’s free from friends, colleagues and new fans. With her long hair worn on one side and the dark eyeliner she looks like a countess portrayed by Tamara De Lempicka, but soon I realize of being in front of a humble person with a strong personality.

You can define Eleonora Bruno hats as “compositions to wear”: she is a supporter of the return of hats into women wardrobe, and in the particular setting of Le Printemps event, she presented the spring summer 2013 hat collection with a new capsule collection entitled “Jungle” featured by large floral elements, woven straw and unexpected chromatic contrasts.

After the first questions about training and the experience with the Italian Vogue, we talked about her fashion-artistic activity and creative process. She revealed that usually prefers to be guided by her instinct; she likes to combine colors, materials and different elements without making sketches, trying to keep the first idea as original as possible.
Her works speak a very strong and joyful language, easily attributable to Anna Dello Russo exuberant style, but despite the sincere admiration that Eleonora has for the iconic Italian fashion editor (ADR is her most important supporter, she recently put Eleonora head-piece in an editorial for Vogue Brazil), during the creative process she doesn’t think to a muse in particular, trying to interpret the customer’s desires according to her inspiration.

Among Eleonora Bruno’s future goals she would like to continue to develop the clothing line and the male line (in addition to winter capsule collection presented recently), but in the meantime her hats continue to travel the world between editorial and boutiques, and is common to find them on the heads of famous designers and fashion icons conquered by her explosive creativity.

As the French say… chapeau!

  1. Ho incrociato le prime volte Eleonora negli uffici del Polimoda dove lei studiava e io facevo uno stage e già ricordo che indossava delle sue creazioni..l’ho poi rivista con gioia a settembre a Palazzo Morando per i Vogue Talents e ho potuto ammirare le sue creazioni!
    Davvero originali e creative!!

  2. Secondo me lei è bravissima. Ho visto le sue creazioni per l’H&M Design Award e l’ho trovata strepitosa.
    Non faccio fatica a credere che Anna Dello Russo l’adori.
    Resto sempre affascinata dalle persone che indossano bene cappelli e copricapi, ancor di più se bizzarri. Ahimè però, al netto anche delle stravaganze, purtroppo non sto bene coi cappelli e quindi mi limito a invidiare chi può sfoggiarli in maniera credibile.
    Meravigliosi quello con le piume effetto Ziegfeld Folies, quello coi fiori, il Cactus e quello di madreperla.
    A Firenze sempre cose interessanti, eh!
    Buon weekend Ale

  3. che belli !anzi bellissimi !

    Adoro le signore con cappello , purtroppo accessorio diventato da noi un pochino desueto o riservato alle grandi occasioni, mi delizio guardando quelli di Kate Middleton e parenti, e delle frequentatrici di Ascot .
    Penso comunque alla Signora Marina Lante dell Rovere che potrebbe essere una ottima testimonial.
    delizioso quello in paglia e quello con le calle , e molto carina l’idea della foto di sfondo che hai realizzato.

    Buona domenica Alessandro
