If you’ve ever pined for the effortless chic achieved by French chicks like Clemence Poesy then we’ve got great news for you and your wardrobe: hot French label Vanessa Bruno has finally opened its first stand-alone shop in the UK.

The boutique, located on Grafton Street in London’s Mayfair, will open its doors to the public at 1pm today and will carry the label’s ready-to-wear collection (think slouchy blazers, perfectly-tailored trousers and light-as-air blouses), the diffusion range, Athé, shoes (we call dibs on the wrap-around ankle boots!) and accessories, including the iconic sequin-trimmed Cabas tote.

The uber-cool designer was there to welcome A-listers Poppy Delevigne, Margherita Missoni and Charlotte Casiraghi at the launch party last night, where the fashionistas supped on champagne and browsed through rails of gorgeous clothes. The London launch coincides with the brand's third fashion/film collaboration with Lou Doillon and the opening of the LA store. We know Bruno devotees including Kate Bosworth and Rachel Bilson will be as delighted as we are!
