Veronique Branquinho Pre-Spring/Resort 2016



"A return to simplicity and to an uncomplicated lifestyle"

 Veronique Branquinho x Ronald Stoops 

"I need a really simple pace in my life.
 I just long for simple, authentic things.
 That’s why I said with this collection, 
instead of making a whole story, 
let’s just focus on 15 dresses. 
This is how it started – with a return to simplicity. 
I think that there was a feeling of nature that was connected to that. 
That’s why we decided to go to a forest with the girls and the dresses. 
Like with my A/W15 collection, 
there are words hidden in the dresses: 
love, hope and faith. 
And in a skirt there is "wild at heart", 
like the song or the movie by David Lynch, 
which I really love. 
It’s also a really nice state of mind — 
it’s an option to be wild at heart. 
To be free. Freedom from the rules."

"It’s always been a twisted relationship between fashion and the industry. 
It’s a creative thing, 
but it seems like all the figures and numbers have taken over. 
And I think we need to find a balance. 
I think when I started I was much more confident about designing and 
now it’s about rules. 
This collection was an emotional thing; 
I asked myself, 
'where do I come from? 
When was I really happy?' 
Because I am happy in the moment of creation, 
and I really love it, 
but this whole thing is tough. 
Especially because, 
even if I'm good, 
I'm still just a little studio; 
I have nothing to compare with the big brands. 
I’m not really playing on the same field." 

"One of the things I said to myself when we started was that
 I really need to find a way that I feel happy working in the industry, 
but also that I connected with people that I love, 
I trust. I just want to be surrounded by them, 
in both life and work. 
It makes it so much better. 
 I need this to be anchored. 
I love what I do — I love my job. 
Because I am happy in the moment of creation."

  1. Here's some illustrious, ingenious, incisive ‘Quid-Pro-Quo’ scenarios
    you maaay wanna consider before picking-up your writing utensil
    for the next bombastically-brilliant-chapter of thy book:

    High, girl!
    While I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
    you shall find in our 24 blogs a gobba (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this mortal sinner yeeeeers to compile:
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear - neet, packaged, concise.

    Nevertheless, wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no
    with an IQ much higher than K2,
    and an extraordinarily, sawcy, rowdy victory??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with an excellent bullshot dectector):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love -
    jump into faith...
    and you'll see with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a passionate, prolific iconoclasm where you’ll find
    astronomically prodigious,
    immeasurably extensive,
    monumentally tremendous,
    stupendously substantial,
    infinitely irresistible,
    (XnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX… )
    deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big House.
