Victoria Beckham Spring/Summer offering which she showed over the weekend at New York Fashion week which went down better than the celebrity designer anticipated.
Sales of Beckham’s two ready-to wear lines (this catwalk one, handmade in London), the new, slightly lower priced Victoria, Victoria Beckham range, sunglasses and denim totaled £60 million in 2011.
“I’ve always wanted to do tailoring, but I couldn’t get the shoulders right – i like them very neat, – so we parked it”. Victoria said, but this collection it looks like she has cracked it. Working with a new super-stylist, Joe McKenna, thigh length jackets with zipped slashes were layered over buttoned-up, white cotton mini shirt dresses and white flared mini skirts, some with pleated chiffon hems.
The collection looked more youthful and androgynous than previous collections, but still with painstaking details. Short sleeves were embellished with lattice work broderie anglaise that echoed the finishes of her slim, gold chain-handled bags. Lingerie dresses featured delicate lace trim and sheer backs.
“I’ve been listening to lots of customers, and for versatility, they want separates.” added Victoria, about the collection.
What do you think of the collection? We especially love the 2nd look.
