INSPIRATION: The collection, entitled “Sunset on the Strip” is where glam and rock meet in the form of “the ultimate California girl.” She’s the effervescent life of the party who still manages to exude sophistication with raccoon fur stoles over silk charmeuse, bohemian accents paired with architectural leather, and boyfriend jackets coupled with jacquard bustier dresses.
PALETTE: Electric blue, amber, black, navy, bordeaux, gold, aubergine, camo, and tiger print.
TRENDS: Floral prints, jacquard, charmeuse gowns, oversized coats, cigarette pants, moto jackets, the signature Veronica Beard blazer.
WHO WAS THERE: InStyle’s new fashion news director Eric Wilson, fashion stylist Gemma Lucy Sheppard.
WHO SHOULD WEAR IT: Lupita Nyong’o, who looks great in everything and was spotted in the sisters’ Scuba bustier jumpsuit, Ashley Madekwe, Sevyn Streeter, editors looking for “the perfect uniform” with a balance of sensibility and edge.
PLAYLIST: “Made to Stray” by Mount Kimbie, “Sunny” by Pillow Talk, “Little Bit” by Lykke Li.
