For Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard — the sisters-in-law behind the eponymous brand Veronica Beard — it all started with a jacket. And this season they’re paying tribute to what is still their best-selling item with a special-edition capsule collection inspired and created by four women whom they admire: SoulCyle founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, author Jill Kargman, model Michelle Ouellet, and actress Jessica Paré and stylist Cristina Ehrlich. “We were always inspired by these women,” Swanson Beard told us at the shopping event to celebrate the capsule’s launch. “And we thought it would be great to do a capsule with four very different women that we love as people and have great style and embody something that is the Veronica Beard brand.” Each jacket has its own special, unique twist and represents the woman who helped design it — and while we love them all, we have to say we’re partial to the navy and black tuxedo jacket that Jessica Paré designed with her stylist Cristina Ehrlich. “Our Double Breasted Tux is a classic,” said Paré. “It’s perfect to throw on over jeans or dress up for evening.” And her co-collaborator Ehrlich agreed: “It’s an easy key piece. It’s day; It’s night, and there’s nothing chicer than navy and black and nothing sexier than a tuxedo jacket.” Love the piece? Head to veronicabeard.com to shop their jacket, which retails for $895, plus the other three — and be sure to hurry! There’s a very limited quantity.
