Veronique Branquinho Man Taupe Epaulet Crewneck Sweater
Details Born in Belgium, Veronique Branquinho studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. She started exhibiting her collection in the late 90s following the surge of her compatriots the Antwerp Six. Branquinho’s work has always been informed by a sense of romanticism coupled with a subtlety that has been noted by many in the industry during a time when lavish designs were ubiquitous. Branquinho brings to the table her love of literature, film, and music, making references to David Lynch in her menswear collections or having Emily Bronte poems printed onto her dresses. The underlying appreciation for other art never dulls her output though, rather enhancing her signature pieces, the Trench Coat, Knitted Sweater and Trousers are garments she has perfect throughout the years, each with its own subtle characteristics. Although military garments have been a source of influence to many designers for their functionality, history, and ethos few can attest to conceptualizing new garments with such refined eye and essentially making them their own. This crewneck sweater is a perfect example of Branquinho taking different elements from military garments and making them her own. This taupe sweater is cut cropped and features epaulets on the shoulders.
