I can’t believe it has been about five years since Victoria
Beckham first launched her eponymous line. As a fashion addict I’ve only had an
understanding of her label for about two years. When I first heard of her
collection, I can’t deny I thought it was going to be one of those dull
celebrity collections with no significance to the real world of fashion.
Dull is an unacceptable description to describe Victoria’s
position today in fashion. Today, Victoria has shown she’s grown and matured
with her collection as I’d state in fashionable terms. In other words, she has
gained my respect, not as a celebrity, but as a true designer.
Sexy, skintight silhouettes are a ritual of Beckham’s
presentations (no surprise). For fall, things were changed, as for there were
some stunning surprises I wasn’t expecting.
Turtlenecks became her new sexiness embracement. Mandarin
collared tops were deeply sliced for those women eager to show some skin. Other
tops, dropped shoulder seams, added a special VB signature.
Length was a main factor on the runway, as for most dresses
were dropped below the knee. A decency
that provoked sensuality.
Outerwear was by far one her best numbers in this
collection. Who knew she would execute outerwear so well? A checked tweed coat with an intense, blue
leather bottom was perfect for next fall, providing that masculine trend so
popular right now. A black pony skin
jacket with brown sleeves oozed confidence in Victoria’s designs.
Knitwear, such as a black turtleneck with a vibrant yellow
triangle, were striking for there first introduction.
For evening, menswear inspired tuxedos became another new
staple. I was quite intrigued as to how she turned her tuxedo into a cape-like
form; a stand innovation.
Overall, makeup and hair portrayed convincingly the woman who seeks to wake up and look radiant on a demanding schedule; one Victoria knows very well how to manage.
I have to confess, after this collection (no pressure VB), what else can you bring to the table now?
