Veronica De Piante Makes Tailoring and Knits Inspired by Global Visions of Home (and a 1990s Stint at Prada)


There is one jacket in Veronica De Piante’s debut collection that is a perfect reflection of the designer herself: It is a double-breasted duchesse-silk style with two flap pockets and a third one on the left side of the chest. Then emerging from underneath the lapel is a wide band with intricate black-on-black beading in a minimalist pattern, created by artisans working from a refugee camp in Jordan.

“Initially I had thought, I’m gonna take that beautiful embroidery from Jordan, and I will make, I don’t know, beach cover-ups and blouses,” she said at a preview appointment inside the expansive West Village town house she shares with her husband, children, and two lovable dogs. De Piante had initially started toying with the idea of launching a label three years ago. “That paused, obviously, and I’m glad it did get paused because it gave me time to reflect and really think about what I wanted to do with it,” she explains. “And I really thought about it, and I was like, I don’t really wear any of that stuff. That’s not who I am.” Friends encouraged her to explore her own point of view.
