Epitomising the minimalist aesthetic in effortless luxury, The Individual is an ode to clean lines, rich fabrics and considered design details. Creating standout pieces inspired by colour, print and Spring Racing our Designers Becca Morgan, Alexie Thompson and Anthea Nicolaou talk about their influences for each of the capsules.

Alexie Thompson, Head Designer



VM: What influenced your capsule?

Alexie: My main influences for the capsule were a range of striking, vintage black and white fashion photographs. I was particularly inspired by Horst’s iconic fashion photography after viewing a retrospective exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum last year.


VM: What was the inspiration behind your chosen fabric?

Alexie: I wanted to create a monochromatic look for Derby Day and mixing solid and sheer fabrics. The combination of something that’s quite sculptural with a sheer layer over the top gives a twist to a classic races look. I selected a specially bonded two tone fabric to create sculptural forms. I also chose an embroidered organza which had a semi sheer nature and a stripe like pattern which added a modern edge.


VM: What is your favourite piece from the collection?

Alexie: The cross back embroidered organza top worn over the fluted hem strapless dress. This look is modern but with a flirty back detail. The longer top plays on proportion but the sheer fabric means it does not look too heavy.


VM: How do your pieces fit into a modern wardrobe?

Alexie: These pieces can be worn together or taken apart and styled into different looks. It is this versatility that makes it modern.


VM: What are your spring racing essentials?

Alexie: For me spring racing is all about putting together an original, eye-catching look. The only essential is to look polished and make a statement on the day.


Becca Morgan, Designer

VM: What influenced your capsule?

Becca: Fabric is the starting point and inspiration for me. I love selecting an unexpected fabric and letting it stand out within a design that’s feels distinctively modern.


VM: What was the inspiration behind your chosen fabric?

Becca: For this collection I’ve chosen a fabric that has a two tone textural weave with a pattern visually reminiscent of heathered jersey. I wanted to use something sculptural to create a unique and polished collection. I’ve chosen soft and subtle colours that are perfect for spring.


VM: What is your favourite piece from the collection?

Becca: The one shoulder wrap dress is definitely a favourite piece. A wrap is a classic element that is flattering on all figures and hides imperfections. I’ve updated this timeless wardrobe staple with off shoulder detailing to make a more contemporary statement.


VM: How do your pieces fit into a modern wardrobe?

Becca: A modern wardrobe is all about versatility. Pieces like the Melange Front Slit Culottes and White Mesh Skirt can be taken seamlessly from day to night with the right accessories. They can even migrate into polished and effortless weekend wear by pairing back with a slide or sneaker.


VM: What are your spring racing essentials?

Becca: Keep your key clothing items a focus, a beautifully designed garment only needs a few simple accessories to compliment it.


Anthea Nicolaou, Designer

Anthea Nicolaou

VM: What influenced your capsule?

Anthea: Silhouette, dimension and modern appeal are three qualities that I feel strongly for when I design so I took this opportunity to explore these ideas and create pieces that encapsulate this.


VM: What was the inspiration behind your chosen fabric?

Anthea: I love fabrics that are sculptural so I chose a bonded twill fabric that allowed me to create modern, structured silhouettes and a double weave crepe that allowed me to achieve a softer drape that still has a sculptural edge. Both fabrics are flat, modern and minimal so the focus is all on the silhouette of the garment. I am a great believer in well cut garments so this was an important consideration. For the colours, I chose a palette of ink and magenta. Everyone loves black but ink can be softer and feels new this season. The magenta is beautiful and rich in its own right but also looks stunning with ink. Plus, a bit of colour never hurts on Cup Day!


VM: What is your favourite piece from the collection?

Anthea: It’s hard to choose just one but I would say that my pick is the Bonded Twill Strap Dress. It can be challenging to achieve harmony within asymmetry but I think that this dress has a beautiful balance despite being asymmetric. It is modern, intricate and ageless.


VM: How do your pieces fit into a modern wardrobe?

Anthea: Each piece was designed with the intent to be modern and timeless so I think that they fit perfectly within a modern wardrobe. They are occasion pieces that work not only for race wear, but for party season, weddings and events. The Crepe Double Weave Bodice and the Bonded Twill Fluted Skirt can also fit into any modern wardrobe as separates to be paired with more everyday pieces.


VM: What are your spring racing essentials?

Anthea: Be impeccable from head to toe. Hair, makeup and accessories are just as important as the outfit. And some form of headwear is a must but opt for something modern and less traditional.

JESSICA NAPPER / Knitwear Designer

“This season knitwear is a huge trend and there is so much versatility in the pieces. I’m loving the rib dress because it is just so effortless. Layer it with a longline jacket for the office or simply wear it with a belt for the evening.”

“I love the Stripe Trapeze Top because it covers two new season trends – pinafore necklines and pinstripes! Perfect to wear with cropped flares or wide leg pants.”

How would you describe your personal style? 

My personal style is very mixed,  but I usually just wear what I love. That could be something from any style or subculture, from vintage to high fashion to street. I like to take inspiration from wherever I can and just make it my own.

Every outfit looks better with?

You can never go wrong with adding a hat to your outfit, it’s usually an unexpected piece and gives real life to an outfit.

Who are your style icons?

I take inspiration from Jane Birkin’s eclectic and bohemian 70s style, Lou Doillon is another icon I admire for an androgynous yet classic look.

What pieces from the S15 collection can you not live without?

The Cut Out Midi Dress, the Drapey Twill Culotte and the Cotton Twill Cropped Pant were phenomenal, as well as the strappy platform sandals, which were some of the coolest shoes I have ever worn.

Emily May Baker


New Zealand born beauty, Emily May Baker has stamped her presence on the Summer 2015 Veronika Maine campaign. Featuring in campaigns for the likes of Gucci and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as gracing the pages of the world’s top fashion titles, Emily’s features are unmistakable as she brings a feminine strength to the new season collection.


What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

I’ve received a lot and I’ve also learnt a lot! The one piece of advice that’s stuck with me is – “mum and dad know best”. They are always right! Well 99% of time… I also try to live by the mindset that attitude is everything – be soft, kind and loving.

How do you keep you’re energy levels up while on a shoot? 

I like to make sure I prepare fresh healthy meals before the shoot so I can have them throughout the day, of course plenty of water and just starting out the day with a good mind set!

How do you describe your off-duty style?

Relaxed, casual and most importantly comfortable. It’s rare to see me out of my gym gear.


What do you like to do in your downtime?

Spend time with the family, I don’t always have the time to see them because of all my travel with work, so when I do I really treasure the time. While I’m at home in New Zealand I also love to spend time at the beach, cooking, camping & generally just chilling out. The one thing I cannot do without is fishing – that would be right up there on the top of that list!

What are your wardrobe essentials?

Activewear, leather jacket and anything black and white!

What’s always in your handbag?

My favorite Celine bag is always full – however I would never leave home without my iPod, headphones, lip balm & perfume.

How do you stay balanced and calm when you have so much going on?

Regular exercise and relaxation, I try to find a balance between work and play. But I love my job so it’s not too hard to stay chilled. Everything in moderation, balance is key!


What piece from the S15 collection can you not live without?

I loved Stripe Off Shoulder Top and the Double Weave Wide Leg Pants!
