It’s New York Fashion Week 2014 and it gives me great pleasure to feature 2 West Village NYC mothers who I’ve been obsessed with their bohemian city chic style and very wearable day to evening clothes.
We met early last year at a Kirna Zabete event when I found the most perfect form fitting Veronica Beard scuba bustier jumpsuit. It was love at first sight…
Veronica Beard– a brand known for jumpsuits and blazers, has now perfected the dress as per W Magazine—one that I will add to my Fall 2014 shopping list.
Designers Veronica Swanson Beard and Veronica Miele Beard were thinking about the kind of hip girls who party on the drag between the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Troubadour in West Hollywood. The design duo, who are sisters-in-law, presented their latest collection at The High Line Hotel on Wednesday. “It’s about marrying bohemian with rock ‘n’ roll,” said Miele Beard. The outfit that best exemplified this glam lifestyle was a slim tuxedo suit cut from metallic gold foiled denim. Elsewhere, the sister-in-law duo riffed on quintessential Saint Laurent motifs with lace-up safari tops, languid charmeuse wrap gowns, and batik-printed maxi dresses. While the flashy fare had definite nightclub appeal, it didn’t feel as relevant as some of the lineup’s more practical, everyday pieces. Highlights included a neoprene-bonded leather biker jacket paired with on-trend gauchos, as well as fringed tapestry sweatshirts and a camouflage jacquard parka coat with a detachable raccoon collar. No terribly groundbreaking ideas here, but overall these were real clothes you could picture real girls wearing right now. As per Style.com
