Sunday’s Victoria Beckham show was sort of special – it didn’t only celebrate the label’s 10th anniversary, but as well it was the last show presented in New York as from September, Beckham will show at London Fashion Week.
What you’ve seen 10 years ago in a Beckham collection, and what you see now, is diametrically, even dramatically, different. No more body-con, tacky cocktail dresses and killer slutty stilettos. It is in fact the opposite – loosely fit maxi-dresses, luxe hoodies and masculine coats and a collection press actually like.
Beckham, since her radical change in fashion aesthetics, must adore the likes of Phoebe Philo – I think it’s not hard to notice some very distinct Célinisms in Beckham’s collection. But since Philo left Céline, where will ‘those’ women shop next autumn? Well, Posh Spice might have the answer.
