VERONIQUE BRANQUINHO has been designing for years, but always remained slightly under-the-radar. The Belgium-born designer creates the type of clothes that you spot on a chic woman across the street, then berate yourself later because you didn’t asked her what she was wearing. There isn’t anything groundbreaking in her design, she simply creates instantly desirable and wearable pieces that look different enough to set you apart. The ability to position herself outside the A-typical is also evident in her imagery. Due to a long-time partnership with photographer Ronald Stoops and makeup artist Inge Grognard, Branquinho’s look books convey exactly what her clothes do: Immediate attraction and ease.
