//JUST IN: VEDA Spring 2012

We were hyperventilating as we unpacked the new spring collection from VEDA because we had instant flashbacks to falling in love with these pieces in the showroom. It’s all classic VEDA (super soft leather; bad-ass, forward styling; killer fits; comfy ribbed sleeves) but there’s something really polished and refined about how Lyndsey’s newest pieces feel. There’s always been a tough edge to the collection, but these spring pieces are as elegant as they are edgy. As always, these guys go fast, so if you want to make sure you have the sickest leather jacket in town this season, get them while they’re hot.

The Cezanne Jacket

Who knew leather, linen, and silk would get along like the best of friends? We know one Mademoiselle who might be shocked (or is it pleased?) at the thoroughly un-girly style of this round-collared jacket. Hidden hooks-and-eyes, four pockets, and slightly flared open cuffs give this classic style a totally downtown feel.

The Washington Trench

We love the idea of a classic staple, but we hate the feeling of buying something just because it’s a “classic” and getting the most boring, lifeless version of it out there. Everybody needs a trench, but nobody needs the same trench as a million other women, so try the Washington instead. A double-breasted twill body gives it that classic look while cozy leather sleeves and a black contrast leather belt make it look like anything but another off-the-rack copy.

The Max Classic Leather Jacket

An absolute must for every girl, the motorcycle jacket is one of those pieces that’s an instant pick-me-up for whenever you’re having a hard time getting dressed in the morning. VEDA’s Max has been a perennial favorite at Acrimony for years and this season’s light and buttery lambskin version is lined in silk for a particularly weightless feel. Fitted to feel like a glamorous second skin, we’re waiting for these to disappear like they always do.

All VEDA pieces are available to buy online HERE and are sitting in store, waiting to be taken home, at Acrimony.
