fall collections, new york: victoria beckham
by Jeremy Danté
season after season, one label im always interested to see is victoria beckham. i think the case of the once posh spice is extremely interesting given the success of her transition from pop star to style icon & now to designer. surprisingly, the beckham label ventures further into the depths of minimalism with a what appears to be influenced by the middle east, 70′s style sensibility & relaxed silhouettes all in one collection. im very impressed by the collection seen this season & admittedly had my share of fears that the beckham label would become a design one note. my fears aside, i adore the concepts & story that is told through this collection. understated through clean design lines, victoria & her design team hit the nail on the head this season. a wide range of looks with understated & still powerful style statements was created this season. an elegant color story was seen as red announced the collections beginning & soon yellow, orange & maroon was soothed into a base of chic earth tones. models walked the runway with head coverings which allowed the clothes to make an even more powerful statement. strong in construction & beautiful by execution, the victoria beckham collection is one that i respect, tremendously.
