I recently had the chance to visit Chantelle Allonby, head designer and creative director of Veronica B, to check out their latest range for XYNZ magazine. Their SS14 collection, 'Dripping in Gold' is their first that features all clothing and accessories designed by Veronica B themselves. Key elements include chunky chained bracelets, glistening body armour, metallic leather and a pop of hot pink. Read on to find out more about the label & the new collection!
Veronica B stems from Maureen’s (owner of label) very own middle name, with the initial of her last name. She mentioned the name and it just stuck. Veronica B, if she was a real person, is the epitome of who we design for and keep in our mind. As we develop, so does she.
The Veronica B woman is someone who likes the finer things in life, but is also fun and down to earth. She doesn’t do things by halves, she works hard and partys even harder. Not only is she adorned in gold and sparkle, her heart and personality radiate such beauty too.
The collection is inspired by empowering women, and the sexuality a strong women has. Think Cleopatra, Grace Jones, Beyonce… we wanted everyone to feel in charge and powerful in this seasons looks, because that is what being a women is all about.
The white and pink bralettes, I want both of them! I would even love one made in soft black leather. This piece is perfect for summer and I've been coming up with lots of different tops and body armour pieces from the collection I could team with it.
We have just launched a very impressive new website where you can buy everything! Plus you can find our stockists here.
We have some exciting stuff coming up; our dog accessory range for Veronica B will be launching shortly, and we have also been working really hard on a fine jewellery collection, which is looking very beautiful. I would love to grow Veronica B as much as possible, potentially into homewares next! Watch out, it’s a Veronica B takeover!
