#MAKEITHAPPEN

Marina Larroudé, Founder of Larroudé

DEBUG: core/paragraph

Getting anything done during quarantine was no easy task. Well, leave it to Marina Larroudé, formerly Barney's VP fashion director, to launch her eponymous footwear and accessories brand during that uneasy time. Her statement-making designs are instant mood-lifters—something we love here at Veronica Beard. Plus, debuting the entire line via Zoom was a challenge—to say the least—but Marina was and continues to be a game-changer in the world of fashion. Here, we chat with the founder on how she does it all and, trust us, you'll want to take notes.

My Style

DEBUG: core/paragraph

Wardrobe MVP...
I tend to wear classic shapes and prints. Feminine pieces usually suit me better and VB clothes are just made for real women—the fit is impeccable and enhances a woman’s body. And the blazers! They are my staple. My go-to's over dresses or paired with jeans. A blazer completes any outfit.
