Tess Bruns

Tess Bruns, otherwise known as @phoebephilofan, bridges the gap between polish and edgy grunge with colorful leathers, one-of-a-kind cuts, and exquisite suiting. If you're looking to get dressed up while feeling the comfort of being dressed down, this is the Muse for you. See it for yourself in her closet of Celine, Vêtements, and more.

What does the word "Muse" mean to you?

A Muse has a strong sense of personal style, identity, and confidence in her identity. They are aspirational while also attainable (you can’t be her, but you can be like her). Through a Muse, others can cultivate their unique sense of style and self-expression.

How would you define your style in 3 words?

Timeless, elevated, relatable 

Is there a trend or designer that you’re Musing over right now?

Phoebe Philo is my forever Muse, but ever since she departed Céline, I have looked for inspiration in her protégés, specifically Daniel Lee (Bottega Veneta), Peter Do, Abnit Nijjar (Jil Sander), and Rok Hwang. 

In your opinion, what’s the best way to instantly elevate a simple look?

I'm a huge proponent for statement accessories. I recently purchased some new Bottega zebra pumps and can’t wait to pair them with a simple tee and denim, along with a bright green clutch for a pop of color.
