Talking Spring with Design Duo Veronica Beard

Veronica Swanson Beard & Veronica Miele Beard

Sister-in-laws Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard joined forces in 2010 to start their namesake label, Veronica Beard. We’ve been enamored with their classic yet elegantly chic collections ever since. Read on for what inspires their designs and what’s getting them excited for spring.

For design inspiration, we turn to…
VMB: The past. Movies, icons, and revolutions…what makes certain people or objects iconic and memorable?
VSB: Anything and everybody. The Internet for images and research.

Our three must-have pieces for spring are…
VMB: Our evening trek pant, leather combo top (to wear with evening trek pant), zinc bustier maxi dress.
VSB: Our tux jacket because it’s so versatile. Great with black jeans without lapel for day or with tux lapel and skinny black pants for night.

We’re obsessed with…
VMB: Rachel Weiss in OZ The Great and Powerful!
VSB: And designing for Resort and Spring 2014…

Our spring ritual is… 
VMB: Eating brunch outside. The people-watching at Pastis is always entertaining and they have the best hollandaise sauce for your eggs Norwegian!
VSB: Heading down to Palm Beach for some sunshine.

If we could have anything or a piece from the Intermix collection this season, it would be…
VMB: Camo jeans by rag & bone.
VSB: Giuseppe Zanotti ankle wrap metal heel sandal.

As the weather warms up, we’re most looking forward to…
VMB::Getting the kids outside!
VSB: Sneaking away somewhere warm and short suits with heels.

We love working together because…
VSB: We are never alone in the tough decisions. Designing is so much more fun when you have two perspectives on the same thing.

If we could have any person living or dead wear our clothes, it would be…
VMB:: Kate Moss rocking a jacket in her own way. She would come up with an incredible way of wearing it that we haven’t thought of.
VSB: And new Veronica Beard clients of course!
