Key fashion notes “We love fashion. Our style is always bright and carefree, but at the same time versatile, because on any one day, we can visit a job in progress, attend a meeting or have to do something with our children. In winter, we love men’s, wrap around coats worn with pants or midi skirt, and classic, flat and above all comfortable ankle boots. We also love fine wool sweaters and a silk scarf tied at the neck can make any look extra special”. An infallible shopping tip “We always include in our wardrobe: white shirts, black and white jeans –straight, narrow or boyfriend-, running shoes and blazers. For the evening, we choose tailored pants or a simple LBO –Little Black Dress-, worn with a spectacular pair of shoes. We also rely on really nice earrings to add a highly personal touch to any look. In general, we prefer timeless clothes, combined with the newest accessories”. Verino: Love at First Sight “What we value the most is its perennial elegance. It is in perfect harmony with our business philosophy and our personal style when it comes to clothes. Quality fabrics, elegant lines and functional designs. It is a classic label which never fails and in which it is worthwhile to invest”. Recommended RV Purchases “This season, an alpine sweater and wool, hounds tooth designs, like a skirt we photographed, are absolute musts. We also love a pink silk scarf dress and a divine warm coat and black sequined, Victorian-style ankle boots can be a special treat”.
