The Hive Styles: Veronica Beard

We often joke we wouldn’t have a store if it weren’t for Rag and Bone and Veronica Beard. While we have many brands we love (we wouldn’t carry them if we didn’t), the pieces we can’t seem to keep in stock or that sell out in days are inevitably by one or the other. The latest delivery of Veronica Beard is particularly lust-worthy, and so one shouldn’t be surprised we dressed Deborah in so many of the designer’s newest pieces!


She is pictured wearing the Veronica Beard ultra-luxurious navy leather and black scuba peplum jacket. The paneling and asymmetrical zipper make it fun enough for a night out while the dark hues and tailored cut keep it subdued enough for work. The black peplum cashmere sleeveless sweater layered under the jacket also comes in light grey, and makes the ideal fall layering piece. We finished the look with the now-iconic Veronica Beard scuba pant in black, Tom Ford sunglasses and DVF booties. The joy of being able to dress our customers head to toe now still hasn’t gotten old and we doubt it ever will!




A Sunglasses Story

Every now and then, you reach a point where merchandise you’ve carried for years starts to feel stale. It stops selling as quickly as it used to, and there is just a general sense of being “over it.” A few months ago, we reached that point with our sunglasses. We’ve carried the same handful of brands for years. Furthermore, many of the most popular styles are made every season and we would buy them for the store every season.

It made sense to us that we would revamp our sunglasses selection when we decided to open The Hive–our new clothing store at 301 Cameron. After some heartache (a favorite brand turned us down) and some research, we brought on new brands Krewe (very on trend and based out of New Orleans) and Tom Ford (total luxury and glamour).

To introduce you to our new brands and to show some love to our older ones, we decided to launch a promotion running today through Sunday on all sunglasses.
