The use of natural fabrics, the intricate details, and the unique prints use make each garment timeless and versatile. Elegance, authenticity and wearability are the three rules they focus on.
The new Veraroad collection speaks about life perceived as a journey, a theme that turns out to be very pertinent to the time we are living. This means not so much that wanting to know, wanting to understand or arriving at your destination is the most important, as is knowing how to enjoy the journey itself and feel the continuous wonder and emotion in walking your own path. Characterised by heavy floral prints exhibiting flowers as an elegant luggage that hosts us.
